Mumbai Film Festival Preview | Kaphal
Batul Mukhtiar’s movie, set in a village in Garhwal, is about and for kids but it works just fine for adults too
Rosy-cheeked and cheeky children, a Garhwal village, and a mysterious old woman who preys on young ones—all the elements are in place for a bedtime story, but Batul Mukhtiar’s Kaphal (Wild Berries) is more than that. Among the titles showing at the upcoming Mumbai Film Festival (17-24 October), Kaphal is the sweet-hearted story of two brothers, Makar (Harish Rana) and Kamru (Pawan Negi), whose prank-filled routine is interrupted by the return of their father Kailash (Subrat Dutta) from the city. As Kailash tries to fit back into village life, the boys and their friends set out on an adventure to find Pagli Dadi, an alleged witch, and persuade her to make their father disappear.
