Coming up on April 28th is Shor In The City, by director-duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK. The comedy film boasts a wide ensemble cast including Tusshar Kapoor, American-Asian sensation, Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes, Covert Affairs), former Miss Great Britain, Preeti Desai, Radhika Apte, Nikhil Dwivedi, and a host of others. The much-awaited comedy, has received standing ovations at various international film festivals and won a Best Director award at the Indo-American Arts Council (MIAAC) Film Festival in New York.
This gritty, grounded film revolves around three loosely interconnected stories set in the midst of the noise and grime of Mumbai during the Ganpati festival. Inspired from various daily newspaper stories, it tells the tale of an expatriate who returns home to an unwelcoming city, a bootlegger of bestsellers and his buddies that find a bag of explosives and a young cricketer must find the money to pay up to get into a cricket team. In the overcrowded urban landscape that forms the backdrop of this film, the right and wrong are blurred, giving way to the more basic need to survive and succeed.
