Miraj Entertainments Queens! Destiny of Dance
recently made its dent on the global film circuit when
it won six awards at The Los Angeles Movie Awards (LAMA)
in the International Films category recently.
winning the first prize in the international films category,
the film won awards for best director for David Atkins,
best cinematography, best costume design, best supporting
actress for Seema Biswas and best special effects.
- Destiny of Dance takes one into the heart of an upmarket
hijra community run by a lovingly-firm mother-figure
called Guru Amma. The story is told through the eyes
of a young hijra called Mukta - the archetype of hijras
- beautiful, the best dancer in the community, a natural
leader whom all the other 'girls' look up to, and potentially
the next Amma of the community.
.until the entry of a total stranger into
their midst - a young 16-year-old whom Amma names
from the outset Nandini is an enigma and a mystery
- where has she come from? Who has sent her (if at
all)? And the purpose of her coming? And what really
is she? Is she in actual a goddess as Amma resolutely
believes her to be? Is she a female? Is she male?
Is she a hijra?
mystery persists throughout. However, with Nandini's
coming, things start going drastically wrong in the
community, which ultimately compels Mukta to pursue
the truth. The rest forms the crux of the film.
Miraj entertainment COO Sonal Deshpande, We
are here to make quality films. Queens, for us, is
a journey of life in human experience that is seldom
understood. The film is made with the honest efforts
to show such lives in a better light. And through
this film we hope to celebrate a way of life in every
colour through dance of destiny.
