PVR Director's Rare to release Shuttlecock Boys on 3 August

MUMBAI: Known to be releasing good films, PVR Director‘s Rare is set to release Indie-film Shuttlecock Boys on 3 August.

Shuttlecock Boys, made under the banner of Pennywise Films, will not only take the audience through a journey of life, but also reach out to everyone wanting to chase their dream as well. It‘s a story that revolves around the lives, successes and failures of four friends who hail from lower-middle class backgrounds living in Delhi with a question trickling down their minds.

Should we accept what life offers to us on a platter or should we try to chase our dreams, taking the path less taken? That‘s the question protagonists Gaurav (Vijay Prateek), Manav (Aakar Kaushi), Pankaj (Alok Kumar) and Loveleen (Manish Nanwani) seek answer to as they decide to embark upon an eventful journey that will change the course of their lives and careers forever.

Shuttlecock Boys is 76 minutes in length, made on a shoestring budget of Rs 3.5 million (personal savings and loan from friends & family), took almost 4 years to be finished and has four non-actors as protagonists.

PVR Cinemas joint MD Sanjeev Kumar Bijli said, "I am delighted to announce the release of our ninth movie Shuttlecock Boys under the PVR Director‘s Rare Banner, which will be released exclusively at select PVR Cinemas. Shuttlecock Boys by Pankaj and Hemant is an honest and refreshing film that has a heart. The protagonist in the film demonstrates courage, determination and persistence which our patrons will appreciate."

"With PVR Director‘s Rare, we have been able to bring distinctive movies for our patrons. We have released eight films under our banner and each movie is equally different from the previous one like Supermen of Malegaon was an independent documentary film that tickled the funny bone while Kshay was a grave movie that took an unforgiving look at obsession. We feel delighted that we have been able to deliver a meaningful cinema to people and further promise to bring many such movies in coming future," he added.

The film, that has been produced by Pankaj Johar, Hemant Gaba and Thakur Dass, has been well-received at international as well as national film festivals.
