The major twist is in the fact that the murderer is one of the family members which makes everyone in the wildly dysfunctional family a suspect. Now, Nawaz aka Jatil Yadav, must sift through a web of lies and red herrings to uncover the truth.

The death seems such an open and shut case that even his partner doubts why Jatil Yadav is so invested in the case! Apart from the political pressure to shut the case, his superior officer too wants him to voluntarily let go of the case.

Some of the members of the twisted family along with the corrupt MLA tries their best to scare off inspector Jatil Yadav. From pressurising him to death threats, they try at length to stop Jatil Yadav from finding out the truth.

The victim, an old zamindar, was to run election in the near future. He used to buy young girls for physical pleasure. His lust knew no boundaries and didn’t even spare his own family members. A teenage girl from his close family – Vasudha( Shivani Raghuvanshi ) was pregnant with his child. She was so consumed with vengeance that she murmured him on his wedding night itself.

Amidst all the turmoil, a secret passion is sparked between Jatil Yadav and the victim’s wife – Radha.

Similarity With Knives Out

Raat Akeli Hai storyline is somewhat similar to the Hollywood thriller movie ‘Knives Out‘. It is a 2019 American murder mystery movie written and directed by Rian Johnson.

One can feel the eerie similarity of the two movies in many aspects.

Firstly, the plot is similar to that of the Hollywood Movie where the family members interacted rarely with each other. They were jealous of the wealth and fame of the victim and wanted to take the wealth for themselves. Even though a large family, due to the lack of love and affection for eachother, they could hardly be called a ‘family’ in true sense.

Secondly, the office of the victim in the bollywood thriller movie has a very close similarity with that of Knives Out. Both the movies have a large painting of the victim in their office that can hardly go unnoticed.

Thirdly, in knives out an old, secret stairway was used to flee the scene. In Raat Akeli Hai Movie, a similar stairway was shown with a possible entry/escape route.

Fourthly, the character resemblance in both the movies is too obvious. A truely grieving daughter, a tall handsome stud and similar characters are to be found in both the movies.

Knives Out Story

A wealthy patriarch, who also happens to be a famous crime-novelist, dies during a family gathering. The police believe it was suicide. However, a private detective goes through a web of lies and deceitful acts of the family members to finally unearth the criminal.
