An adaptation of William Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus set in contemporary New Delhi. The Hungry is a contemporary retelling of Shakespearian tragedy Titus Andronicus, set in the extravagant surroundings of an Indian wedding whilst exploring the role of the patriarch and corruption in Indian politics and big business.
So visually awe-striking, rich colours, rich wardrobe, rich props, the movie drips in splendour that is such a wonderful contrast and juxtaposition with the storyline.
Coming from someone who does not like watching violence, I really enjoyed this film as it kept me hooked and thrilled! I thought the scenes that depicted any form of graphic content were done rather tastefully and I thought was essentially an elevated "elegant" gore film! There is more of the sinister, psychological, 'messing with your brain' - which the editing of the film did brilliantly of truly disorienting you with the timeline until the end - which you anticipate but do not expect. The tension build up throughout the movie but also having the climax at the end was amazing.
I may be biased (I am), but for any of you that can stomach dark and lurid, this one's for you, definitely! Also hey supporting women directors and 'international' cinema for a US audience is always a plus for me. :)
