Aarushi's murder case unraveled in the film 'Talvar'
"Everyone will know a few key words... wife swapping, golf club, scalpel ... But not many will remember that there was an alternative theory that existed."- Meghna Gulzar, director of "Guilty"
It's been called India's biggest murder mystery... and that's just some of the sensational media coverage of the 2008 double homicide in the Delhi suburb of Noida.
The case grew infamous inside India after breakneck twists and turns emerged in the criminal investigation... including allegations of police incompetence.
Six years after the bodies were discovered...Aarushi's parents - both dentists - were convicted of her murder and sentenced to life in prison.
And yet.... niggling questions remain for many, about whether justice was done.
This week, a new film based on a fictionalized account of the case had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. "Guilty" – or "Talvar" – as the film is called in Hindi will be in theatres in both India and Canada next month.
- Meghna Gulzar is the director of "Guilty," and she was in our Toronto studio.
- Shree Paradkar is a Canadian journalist and aunt of Aarushi Talwar, also in Toronto.
