'Lakshmi' screened at HR College
Lakshmi, the upcoming 2014 Hindi drama film directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, was recently screened here at the HR College for the undergraduate media students.
The screening was followed by a Q and A session with the film's director Nagesh Kukunoor, actor Monali Thakur and producer Elahe Hiptoola.
The students were awestruck by the violence and captured by the emotion in the film.
Kukunoor noted that all the violence portrayed in the film is based on reality- but what had a bigger effect on the audience were the moving scenes where no violence was shown but only implied.
Monali went on to say that the hardest part of making the movie was the script reading, because it was so hard to detach from the character.
When asked if he thinks this movie will actually bring about any change, Kukunoor said, "All I can do is shed a spotlight on the problem and start a debate."
Kukunoor was delighted with the response from the students, "The validation from college students in India was essential for us because we want you to spread the word."
