As seen in the trailer, P.C Solanki (portrayed by Manoj Bajpayee) is fighting the biggest case of his life that too against a powerful self-styled godman in a minor girl’s rape case. Despite death threats against him, his family and the key witnesses, P.C Solanki is persistent in his fight for truth. The battle between an ordinary man’s willpower and a godman’s power continued for 5 long years where P.C Solanki fought against some of the country’s most eminent lawyers to prove that no Godman is above law, and that truth will always prevail.
Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said “Sirf Ek Bandaa Kaafi Hai has received immense appreciation since its premiere on the platform. It is a thought-provoking subject which deserves all the attention. Our aim is to create and present content that eliminates language barrier and Sir Ek Bandaa Kaafi hai is another step in that direction. Watching a film in your native language gives the audience a sense of comfort, belonging and adds a contextual flavour to the subject.
