2019, Amazon Studios, 110 min, Germany/India/USA, Dir: Ritesh Batra

Two lives intersect in Mumbai and go along together. A struggling street photographer (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger (Sanya Malhotra) to pose as his fiancée. The pair develops a connection that transforms them in ways that they could not expect. “Writer-director Ritesh Batra’s first Indian film since his debut feature has the same quiet streak of wistful sentimentality that made THE LUNCHBOX so globally beloved … Batra’s filmmaking has remained markedly consistent in tone and texture: You’d be hard pressed to find anyone making nicer films in world cinema right now.” – Guy Lodge, Variety.

In Hindi, Gujarati and English with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
