Two Indian films added to Toronto International Filmfest programme

NEW DELHI: The Toronto International Film Festival, which had earlier announced its selections, has now added two more Indian films in different sections.

Margarita, with a Straw directed by Shonali Bose will get a world premiere in Contemporary World Cinema programme while Megha Ramaswamy’s short film Newborns will screen in the inaugural Short Cuts International programme.

Margarita, with a Straw revolves around Laila (Kalki Koechlin), a young romantic and a secret rebel in a wheelchair. Undeterred by cerebral palsy, she embarks on exhilarating adventures of self discovery, which causes a rift both within and with those she is closest to. Ultimately, it is in the intensity of these bonds where she must find the strength to truly be herself.



Newborns attempts to provide a lens to the survivors of acid violence, to look forward and gaze back. They take us through the ennui of their domestic and public spaces in a nameless dystopian city, its factories, houses and motels, and its promises, never honoured.

A total of 36 international shorts from 29 countries will be screened in the newly introduced short film section at the 39th Festival from 4 to 14 September.

The programme presents the latest works of some of the most provocative and important voices in cinema from around the globe.

Several other Asian films have also been added. They include the world premieres of Johnnie To’s Don't Go Breaking My Heart and Revenge of the Green Dragons, co-directed by Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo.

Other new titles include Joel C. Lamangan's Justice Hustisya, Liew Seng Tai's Men who save the World and Chang Jung-chi's Partners in Crime.

Machine.... Poor show

Machine is a rather unlikely story with an unlikely title. Coming from Abbas Mustan duo, the Burmawalla brothers, who made a reputation for giving thrillers and action films with good musical score, one expected more of the same stuff. Having worked with some of the top artistes of Hindi film...

'Badrinath Ki Dulhania' is on its way to becoming a hit

The time period for the release of Badrinath Ki Dulhania was dicey to say the least. The film was released bang in the middle of days of election results in the most politically volatile states of the North India, board exams and the pre-Holi Friday. Also, cinema halls are closed till mid-noon on...
