Prakash Jha’s new movie Chakravyuh showing at Gold Coast Int. Film Festival on Long Island


Prakash Jha is one of my favorite Indian filmmakers, and I am happy to see that his new movie Chakravyuh starring Arjun Rampal, Abhay Deol and Om Puri will be presented at the Gold Coast International Film Festival in Manhasset,  Long Island, Oct 27th at 1pm . It will be the only Indian film showing this year. So,  if you live in the area and love Indian films don’t miss this chance!
Prakash Jha is technically considered a Bollywood filmmaker, but since Bollywood movies are often viewed, in the West particularly,  as entertainment that’s  laced with song and dance,  his movies are content-driven and don’t fit the masala Bollywood mold. He is political. socio-critical.  I haven’t seen all of his films, but the ones I watched were phenomenal.

Description

Straight from the headlines about India’s outlawed Naxalites, comes this Bollywood action epic about Kabir who goes undercover for his friend, the head of the local police, and infiltrates the ranks of the left-wing revolutionaries. But Kabir falls in love with one of the ultra-violent leaders, a beautiful woman called Juhi. His allegiance begins to change as he gets new insight into the relations between the poor local villagers and the local land-grabbers. Prakash Jha’s characteristically balanced handling of controversial topics, the strong characters, and the robust script and sharply executed action sequences make for a guaranteed crowd-pleaser.
