Hidden Gems in Cinema

gmail

Low budget independent movies often don’t make it to the people – they run out of marketing steam and by the time they are shown in theatres, hardly anyone has heard of it. While the production value of such movies is an eternal debate, in reality these are movies that are really memorable and they tend to engage audiences. They are well made by new directors and they feature a lot of unknown actors. Here are some hidden gems:

1. Placebo
An English fantasy movie, directed and written by Mr.Abhay Kumar, where in one of the toughest undergrad schools in the world, a filmmaker infiltrates a complex mindscape of ambition and restless youth. It takes on the issue of student-suicides in India with empathy and seriousness. It’s a must watch for every Indian student, teacher and parent.

2. Cities of Sleep
Cities of Sleep’ is a Hindi movie which takes us into a heady world of insurgent sleeper’s communities as well as the infamous ‘sleep mafia’ in Delhi where just securing a safe sleeping spot often becomes a question of life and death for a large number of people. Beautifully directed by Mr. Shaunak Sen, the film looks at not only the tremendous social and political pressure that sleep exerts on the homeless in the city but is also a philosophical exploration of sleep at large.

3. Mor Mann Ke Bharam
An author’s struggle between what he wants to write and what others might want to read which culminates into a surrealist novel. Directed by Mr. Heer Ganjwala, Mr.Karma Takapa and Mr.Abhishek Varma, Mor Mann Ke Bharam attempts to create an experiential narrative using the ambiguous and cryptic form of illusions. The film features folk songs of Chhattisgarh, in their original form and uses local motifs embedded in Chhattisgarhi culture that have not found space on the big screen till date.

4. Blue Bicycle
A childish love story of where a 12 year old boy is saving up his hard earned money for his big dream – a new blue cycle, when the girl he is in secretly love with becomes victim of a great injustice at school. A very sensitive Turkish movie, directed by Mr.Ümit Köreken, where the boy takes up the passionate fight for democracy and against a system stuck in its ways.

5. Remembering Kurdi
Directed by Mr. Saumyananda Sahi, Remembering Kurid is a Maharashtrian movie with a mixture of drama and romance where the harsh memories of caste and feudal injustice are discussed with as much curiosity and fervor as personal stories of loss and longing. Yet while each community – be they Hindu, Christian, Muslim or the Gaonkar tribe – tells of fractured histories, they share the fact of submergence just the same.
