Hindi Indies Find New Ways to Get Trendy

17 May 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In 2016, “Aligarh,” a Hindi film about a gay university professor in a small town, was released across theaters in India. By then it had already wowed festival audiences and received critical acclaim for its sensitive portrayal of the professor and his fight for privacy in a country where same-sex acts are legally punishable.

Aligarh” had no big stars or choreographed numbers; its strengths lay in tender performances and a portrait of quiet dignity.

“I have been trying to make independent-spirited films and to tackle themes that reflect social reality and speak of social justice,” says Hansal Mehta, the film’s director. “How can you make such stories according to the mainstream obsession with the larger than life representation of things? Very rarely do those films depict socio-economic realities.”

Cannes: 10 Indian Filmmakers That Should Be on the Festival’s Radar

17 May 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When the Cannes Film Festival unveiled its 2017 Official Selection, the lack of a single title by an Indian director marked the second year running that the biggest film industry in the world has been unrepresented in the main lineup (the last Indian movie in the Official Selection was Neeraj Ghaywan’s “Masaan” in 2015’s Un Certain Regard section).

Indian cinema has never been a complete non-entity at Cannes; ever since Chetan Anand won top honors with “Neecha Nagar” at the inaugural festival in 1946, Indian filmmakers have enjoyed some degree of exposure at Cannes, in or out of competition. In the last decade alone, screenings have included features and shorts from close to 30 Indian filmmakers, including Vikramaditya Motwani, who wowed audiences with “Udaan”; Ritesh Batra with his Grand Golden Rail-winning “The Lunchbox”; and Anurag Kashyap, whose “Ugly,” “Gangs of Wasseypur” and “Raman Raghav 2.0” all opened to applause at various Directors’ Fortnights. »

Indian Film Fest La 2017 Review: Trapped, Loneliness Abounds in the Midst of Millions

9 April 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Vikram Motwane's Trapped is the story of a man who becomes locked in his flat hundreds of feet above the bustling metropolis of Mumbai with no one to save him or even miss him. When the story first became apparent through the release of the trailers and other pormotional material, there was an immediate backlash against the seemingly preposterous nature of the plot. How could a man get stuck in his flat and have no one looking for him? Well, more than simply a skyscraper-set rehash of Castaway, Motwane's films explores the nature of loneliness and the fact that it doesn't matter how many people you are surrounded by, you can still disappear very easily. Rajkummar Rao (Shahid, Aligarh, Kai Po Che) is Shaurya, what...

Rajkummar Rao To Play Terrorist Omar Sheikh In Hansal Mehta’s ‘Omerta’

21 March 2017 10:24 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Actor Rajkummar Rao, who has proved his versatility with diverse roles in films like Shahid, Queen, Love Sex Our Dhokha (LSD), Aligarh and Trapped, which was screened at Mami, comes across as a meek and mild-mannered person, which is why this piece of news will make you sit up and take notice.

Rao, who had teamed up with Hansal Mehta for Shahid, Citylights and Aligarh, will play a radicalised Britisher of Pakistani origin Omar Sheikh (infamous for killing Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl) in Mehta’s upcoming film Omerta.

In an interview to a leading daily, Mehta said, “This film is based on the said international fugitive, who was involved in Pearl’s murder, and it covers a host of terrorist activities (including 26/11) seen through the eyes of this person, who was at the centre of it all. After watching ‘A Mighty Heart’ (2007), I wanted to know more about »

Trapped: Watch the Trailer for Vikramaditya Motwane's Urban Isolation Thriller

22 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Mumbai is a city of around 25 million people, so it's hard to imagine a person ever being truly alone. However, in director Vikramaditya Motwane's (Lootera) new film Trapped, that's exactly the situation that Rajkummar Rao (Shahid, Aligarh, Kai Po Che) finds himself in after making a simple but tragic miscalculation, which leaves him locked inside his apartment at the top of one of the city's many high-rise apartment blocks. I was fortunate to see a first cut of this teaser last summer when I was in Mumbai and was more or less sworn to secrecy regarding what I'd seen. I'm glad I can finally share what looks like a terrifying urban version of Castaway with our Screen Anarchy readers. I even tried to program...
