‘Counterfeit Kunkoo’ has been selected in the Indie Episodic section at the prestigious Sundance International Film Festival.
Can you explain what is meant by Counterfeit Kunkoo and how it tells the film?
‘Kunkoo’ is the Marathi word for sindoor or kunkum – the vermillion powder that married Hindu women wear. ‘Counterfeit Kunkoo’ refers to signs of marriage that have lost all meaning – that functions merely as simulacra.
