DFD to release Girish Malik's 'Jal'
OneWorld Films on Tuesday announced that they have aligned with DAR Film Distributors (DFD) for the India distribution of the film 'Jal'.
Oneworld Films and DAR also announced that the film, which has been shot across the picturesque Rann of Kutch, is scheduled to release on Mar 21 across India.
Directed by Girish Malik, the film stars Purab Kohli, Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain among others.
'Jal' was also the only Indian film to have made it to the of the recently concluded Busan International Film Festival and was also more recently it was the official selection in the Indian Panorama section at IFFI Goa.
Commenting on the movie, Director Girish Malik, said: "JAL to me has always been a content driven entertainer. There is no rule, that to create a wholesome entertainer you have to treat the subject with insensitivity. The film is called Jal but the plot is about human interaction in all its honesty, albeit told in a very commercially entertaining way laced with rib tickling good humor."
"It was thus imperative that our distribution partners needed to be a specialist and not just any film distributer. It's with that understanding that we collaborated with DAR. Their modus operandi is suited for the masses and the classes as seen with their last couple of releases," said Girish.
