Directed by Priya Krishnaswamy and written in Marathi, Hindi and English, ‘Gangoobai’ is the story of an elderly widow who has lived her whole life in the tiny colonial hill station of Matheran, set against the Sahyadri range. She works as domestic help in a few homes, among them that of the wealthy Hodiwala family which has a weekend retreat in Matheran.
Against all odds, she saves the money over four years of hard work and finally finds herself in Mumbai.
A Bhojpuri film directed by Mangesh Joshi, ‘He...’ is about Hari, a 13-year-old runaway
Girish Malik’s ‘Jal’ is set against the surrealistic and eerily romantic backdrop of the Rann of Kutch. It is about hope for its inhabitants—humans and flamingos. Kim has come, just like the migratory flamingos, from a faraway land and stirs up lust and greed in the community, challenging its innocence. Against this backdrop, Bakka, the central character, wins over nature, finds water, marries for love and yet is engulfed by Kutch’s cruel sands.

The disappointments and unfulfilled promises of these characters emerge as the film unfolds and they meet accidentally.
