Nagraj Manjule made an impressive debut with the National award winning Fandry. And since then we have been eagerly looking forward to his next film Sairat.
By Manjule's own admission, Sairat is a full fledged love story set in a rural backdrop. The film which stars newcomers Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru was screened at the recently concluded 66th Berlin International Film Festival. Rinku Rajguru also received a special mention for her performance at the recently concluded 63rd National Film Awards .
After completing a fairly successful run at international festivals and with a National award in tow, the film is scheduled to release on 29th April and it seems like yet another interesting film by Manjule.
Check out the trailer of the film below.
The trailer of Anu Menon’s emotional drama Waiting starring Kalki Koechlin and Naseeruddin Shah was also released recently. The film was well received at Dubai and other international film festivals. The film was also chosen as the closing film for the recently concluded Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles.
With prominent actors like Kalki Koechlin, Naseeruddin Shah and Rajat Kapoor top-lining the cast, Waiting showcases the bond shared by two people whose fates are entwined due to one tragic event. The film also marks the Hindi debut of well known actress Suhasini Mani Ratnam, who is also the wife of acclaimed director Mani Ratnam.
Despite its seemingly grim storyline, the film is touted as a story of courage, optimism and positivity. Scheduled to release on the 27th of May, Waiting surely seems like a film worth looking forward to.
