  • The cast of the series alongside Sunil Grover in the lead role, also includes Ranvir Shorey, Girish Kulkarni, Sonal Jha, Shonali Nagrani and Ashish Vidyarthi in key roles.
  • While the actor Bharat plays the main suspect of the murder and Ranvir can be seen essaying the role of the police inspector. Who’s in charge of the case.
  • Screenplay has also been penned by Vikas Bahl, who as well as helmed this web series as the director.
  • Along with Vikas, the series has also been co directed by Rahul Sengupta.
  • The makers hide their secrets well. But at the same time, they let you satisfy your crime solving and clue finding itch. The trait of the mystery thrillers is that you can’t see the twists coming from a mile off. It is not a smooth journey, but Sunflower tries to walk this fine line.
  • The official synopsis of the series plot on Zee5’s website says, “When Mr. Kapoor of Sunflower society is found dead, the cops arrive and interrogate the neighbours. In a society full of quirky characters, who must have killed Kapoor and why?”. A dead body and two suspects. There is the obvious one who looks guilty from the word go, and then there is the mysterious one with hidden motives. Are both of them involved in the murder? Or, are they just the usual suspects and there is more to it than meets the eye?
  • The latest ZEE5 web series pulls you involved and conscious from the beginning. Actually, due to the murder of a resident of a suburban residential society, Raj Kapoor. Then, the police start their investigation and face chaos.
  • Sonu Singh with evidence stacked against him becomes the obvious suspect. Kapoor’s neighbour Dr Ahuja also keeps on the radar due to his suspicious behaviour and the crime scene in the beginning. When inspectors Digendra and Tambe begin their investigation of the crime, the case gets trickier and knotty.
  • Mukul Chadda as a school teacher conspires to kill Mr. Kapoor, who reacts impulsively and is short-tempered. He blames his wife for putting his life in danger, as she didn’t fast on Karva Chauth and dominates her. But things are not what they seem, and he is not who he appears to be. And, the suspense created through him does not pan out.
  • It’s a pleasure to see Grover in a role of some substance. A perfect mix of quirkiness and innocence made by Vikas Bahl. In fact, he is not an usual neighbour or colleague. If at one moment one doubts his intentions, the very next moment he or shee sympathises with him.
  • Once Sunil Grover said in an interview, “he cannot put the web series in a particular genre, as it has thrill, humour and dark comedy. While it doesn’t fit into all these brackets, Sunflower’s character development is its strength.”
