Bollywood is making movies based on real stories these days. And Talvar is also a fiction on true life events of Aarushi Talwar. It is based on the double murder case of a teenage girl Aarushi and her servant.  Earlier the movie title was Nyodda. But later it was changed to Talvar when approved by Talwar family.

About Talvar

Talvar is based on contradictory accounts of the case, which variously portray the parents as guilty and innocent both. Three teams worked on the case. Initially Local Police investigated the case which is further investigated by CDI team 1 (headed by Irrfan Khan). Again the case is handed over to a new CDI team. All three investigations brings out with 2 faces of truth. One is proving the parents as murderer and another team proves servant as the murderer.
