10th December 2015

'Chauranga', which won the best film award at MAMI last year and also the Grand Jury prize at Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles IFFLA, has released their trailer.

The film is set in the dark hinterland of India where tradition and modernity collide precariously, 'Chauranga' is inspired by a real incident.

Fourteen-year-old Santu wants to go to school like his older brother Bajarangi. Their mother works as a maid at the mansion of the upper-caste village headman with whom she is having a dangerous, secret liaison.

When Bajarangi comes home from boarding school on holiday, he exposes Santu to the dreams of city life. But Santu's destiny was pre-written in a village that's steeped deep in caste-hierarchy and debauchery.

Unaware of the consequences, he is nurturing defiance and courting a few dangerous infatuations that can topple the equations of caste in the village. How far will his defiance take him? What will be the price of his escape? 

The film features Sanjay Suri and Tannishtha Chatterjee in the lead roles. The film is produced by Sanjay Suri, Onir & Mohan T Mulani, and is directed by Bikas Ranjan Mishra. 

The film is slated to release on January 8th, 2016. Click here to watch the trailer.
