A SPECIAL ASIA PREMIERE OF BORNILA CHATTERJEE’S THE HUNGRY
After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Britain-India co-production “The Hungry”, had its Asia premiere at the Jio MAMI 19th Mumbai Film Festival with Star.
The special premiere was attended by Director Bornila Chatterjee, Naseeruddin Shah, Tisca Chopra, Sayani Gupta, Zoya Hussain and Neeraj Kabi to name a few.
Bornila Chatterjee’s The Hungry is based on Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus. The film follows Tulsi (Tisca Chopra), who is set to wed Sunny (Arjun Gupta), the son of a ruthless corporate tycoon named Tathagat Ahuja (brilliantly played by legendary Indian actor Naseeruddin Shah). At a New Year’s Eve party he is hosting, Ahuja recruits Tulsi’s promising younger son, Ankur, to participate in a business deal. During the meeting Ankur makes a grave mistake, the deal is spoiled, and he is killed. This event sets off a flurry of violence and murder, much of it initiated by Tulsi, seeking revenge for the brutal murder of her son. As her wedding approaches, Tulsi must decide how much more she is willing to lose in order to see her plans through to the very end.
