  •  Gitanjali Rao's debut  film Bombay Rose in hand-painted animation format,after  making huge waves at Venice International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, Busan Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, and IFFI, Goa,  is now included in the Kaleidoscope section of 24th IFFK.Bombay Rose, as the title suggests, is a story set in Mumbai, and also harks back to 1960s, when Bombay (as it was called then) was a more pluralistic society, according to Gitanjali. "One period is of 2005, when dance bars were shut down by the moral policing of the government, and what it did to the women employed there. They were forgotten. Society was very happy those dance bars were gone but these women had a raw deal. They're still fighting the court case. Then it talks about when child labour was banned. Children below the age of 14 were not allowed to work, but they weren't given any alternative. Juvenile homes were far worse in terms of criminality than working outside. So when governments take those calls, the aftermath is not pursued even by the press. Having lived through those times, these instances stayed with me."

  • The Home and the World Today / Ghawre Bairey Aaj
  • Ghawre Bairey Aaj is inspired by Rabindranath Tagore’s novel “Ghawre Bairey” (Home and the World), and is a contemporary retelling of the triangular love story involving Tagore’s characters Nikhilesh, Sandip and Bimala.

  • The theme of human empathy lifts a simple story of everyday poverty into resonant emotion in Goutam Ghose’s masterfully told The Wayfarers (Raahgir). If at first the heroine seems likely to collapse under her trials of Job, the story takes an unexpected turn when she hits the road in search of daily work to feed her family and encounters a cheerful, generous man as poor as she is. Directed by acclaimed Bengali filmmaker Goutam Ghose (The Crossing), it’s a film destined to reward the niches following its bows at Busan and then Mumbai Film Festival.
