Ajay Bahl’s debut feature B.A. Pass is a mostly faithful adaptation of Mohan Sikka’s Railway Aunty from the anthology Delhi Noir. The movie maps the sorry life of Mukesh, who is forced into servicing middle-aged housewives to support his family. The movie, which will be distributed by VIP Films, has got an adults-only certificate without any cuts—a big relief for Bahl, who is also the cinematographer and producer. “The first thing they see is the intention of the film-maker," he says. “You also apply your own censorship when you shoot—there is no point in going over the top. We were careful of the aesthetics of the compositions."
