Actor-director Rajat Kapoor’s latest directorial venture Ankhon Dekhi will open the 8th annual Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival (MISAFF) 2014 to be held in Toronto from August 7. 

The critically acclaimed film stars Sanjay Mishra, Seema Pahwa, Namit Das, Manu Rishi, Brijendra Kala besides Rajat. 

“On my way to Toronto. Tomorrow is a screening of Ankhon Dekhi – it is the opening film at MISAFF- come and say hello if you are around,” Rajat tweeted

The film is about  a man in his late fifties, living out a dreary but eventful life in a small house in old Delhi- where he lives with his extended family and a random incident  that changes his life in a dramatic way- though he does not realize at the moment. Bauji’s daughter has been seeing a boy of ill repute. When that fact is revealed to the family, after much deliberation they decide to do the obvious- lock up the girl and go beat the willful boy. It is a funny old journey of this man, this old fool- who is both Lear and the fool.

A project of the Canadian Community Arts Initiative, the MISAFF features the best of new South Asian cinema from around the world and is a landmark film festival in Canada. 

The four-day festival will culminate on August 10, 2014.
