Mumbai, Feb 26 : OneWorld Films on Tuesday unveiled the first look and theatrical trailer of Girish Malik's "Jal" at a special function here.
Produced by OneWorld, in association with Clapstem Productions and NFDC, and distributed by DAR Film Distributors, the film is scheduled to hit the silver screen on Apr 4.
The film stars Purab H Kohli, Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain amongst others.
Another key highlight of the film is that it marks the official debut of Sonu Nigam and Bikram Ghosh as music directors.
The first look and theatrical trailer of the movie was launched at a special event held in a multiplex in suburban Mumbai.
The event was attended by the Producer and Director Girish Malik along with Puneet Singh, Sumit Kapoor and Yogesh Mittal of the production company One World Films, Murli Chhatwani from DAR Film Distributors, Co-Producers Ajay Swami and Associate Producer Arun Tyagi, Sonu Nigam, Bickram Ghosh, the Cast and Crew of the film, media and key industry figureheads.
The film's poster captures all the elements of the film, skillfully balancing them against the backdrop of the picturesque Rann of Kutch, giving a larger than life feel to the film.
Taking the same tone forward, the 2.30 min theatrical trailer of the film opens with a wide scale shot of the enthralling, seemingly limitless Rann of Kutch, which hooks the audience in.
Speaking at the occasion director of the film Girish Malik said, "Jal to me is a project that is larger than life itself, the film, a wholesome entertainer is about human interaction and true love in all its honesty, albeit told in a very commercially entertaining way laced with rib tickling good humor. I have tried conveying the same with the movie's trailer and poster."
Jal is the story of a young water diviner, Bakka, who is gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert.
With the backdrop of water paucity, the film tells a complex and fascinating story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of human character.
Jal was also the only Indian film to have made it to the prestigious in-competition segment of the recently concluded Busan International Film Festival and was also more recently the official selection in the Indian Panorama section at IFFI Goa.
