“The story of the women of Parched lingers in our hearts and minds long after the last frame of Leena’s luminous work dies down” – Subhash K Jha

22 September 2016 9:29 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Parched

Starring Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte , Surveen Chawla, Lehar Khan

Written & Directed by Leena Yadav

Long after Parched played out its poignant plot, I kept thinking about the four women at the forefront of Leena Yadav’s sparkling saga of patriarchal tyranny. The enduring grief and the brief bouts of buoyancy that Rani (Tannishtha Chatterjee), Lajjo (Radhika Apte), Bijlee (Surveen Chawla) and Janaki (Lehar Khan) carry with themselves, lingers in our hearts and minds long after the last frame of Leena’s luminous work dies down.

The film is shot with such inescapable beauty by Russell Carpenter (who moves with fluent fecundity from the soggy sappiness of Titanic to the parched desertscape of this walloping work on women’s empowerment) that you fear for the inner lives of the characters. Would their emotional existence be able to withstand the sheer extraneous splendor of the storytelling?

The answer, my friend, is blowing passionately in the winds. »

Reinvention of business models for movies or perish?

14 September 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

While news of some big studios shutting shop for local productions may be creating frown lines for the film industry, there’s a completely different breed of young Indie filmmakers who seem to have cracked a different code to circumvent these cash crunches. In their own search and struggle to work against the budgeting odds involved in movie-making, these young guns are redefining the Indian film business like never before. And one of the most promising names from this growing tribe is the 25-year-old National Award winning director Shubhashish Bhutiani, whose debut feature film ‘Mukti Bhawan’ (‘Hotel Salvation’) is all set for a world premiere at the upcoming International Venice Film Festival. Interestingly though this Indie film is rooted in India and at its core a  story which is extremely universal in appeal.

Trailer of Leena Yadav’s Parched

13 September 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Check out the amazing trailer of the movie Parched, which is releasing on 23rd of September, and stars Tannishtha Chatterjee, Radhika Apte, Surveen Chawla and Adil Hussain.

In a rural Indian village called Ujhaas, three ordinary women- Rani, Lajjo and Bijli begin to break free from century-old traditions that have kept them locked in servitude.

Talking about the critically acclaimed film, director Leena Yadav said, “Born a woman, I was raised to judge and treat people as human beings above and beyond their gender, religion or caste. This story is my reaction to a misogynistic society that treats women as objects of sex, where their greatest role is to serve men. Giving my women characters a voice that observes, absorbs and reacts was what drove me to write this drama about ordinary women who are driven to extraordinary ends. All of us are sometimes driven by social structure to be ‘dutiful’ of values and norms, »

Bhutiani: 'I knew I never wanted to make a film that felt philosophical or spiritual because being in that space and talking to people, I found a very human quality to it' Photo: Courtesy of Venice Biennale College Shubhashish Bhutiani’s Hotel Salvation (Mukti Bhawan) tells the story of a son (Adil Hussain), who reluctantly takes his father (Lalit Behl) to the holy city of Varsani, when he becomes convinced that it is time to die.

Reflections 2015: The Best Indie and Festival Films of 2015

10 January 2016 3:30 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

By Katherine Matthews and Rumnique Nannar

One of the most frustrating aspects of covering festival and indie films has been the limited access for a wider audience – very often review comments run along the lines of: “Tell me where I can see this!” 2015 was a year that finally saw some great shifts in this, with a number of festival films finally getting a theatrical release – some of them films that had been on the festival circuit for a couple of years, some of them hot off the 2015 festival rounds. Audiences for both festival and indie films are small, but they’re growing, and access to this year’s “best of” selection should be easier for interested viewers. 2015 was, indeed, a great year for these films – enjoy our choices for Festival and Indie Bests!
