At a time when romance and drama ruled the industry, Sunil Kumar Desai struck another gold after Tarka. It was a different experience for the audience back then as Nishkarsha is a complete action thriller with no songs or dance, which was till then a must in the movies.
The digital format has done justice to the original film without disturbing the real essence and gives today's audience a golden opportunity to feel the experience from the past which has stood the test of time. This is another reason why the film has been one of the hot favourites for television screening till date.
For the present generation audience who would have missed the action on TV, this one is inspired by a Hollywood action thriller but Sunil Kumar Desai adapted it with a completely new dimension to it. The credit goes to B C Patil, who had not only dared to produce such a movie which was a challenge by itself with the making but also featuring in the antagonist's role.
