This post is part of our small endeavour to spupport indie films and give them some visbility. We haven’t seen the film, have no clue about the makers, just a random mail and here it is. Do check out the trailer.

Shuttlecock Boys is a self-financed independent Hindi feature film produced by Pennywise Films and directed by Hemant Gaba. After travelling through some film festivals (Jaipur, Surat & Shimla) in India, it will have its International Premiere in USA at Chicago South Asian Film Festival followed by a screening in the competitive category of International Film Festival Ahmedabad in October.

The film tells the story of 4 boys Gaurav, Manav, Loveleen & Pankaj who embark on an eventful journey of “doing something on their own”, a decision that they take while playing badminton one night in their neighbourhood streets. This journey becomes the litmus test of their determination, courage, luck & spirit of the friendship.

The story originated from the director’s upbringing years in lower middle class, out of his personal experiences of being stuck in 9 to 6 monotonous jobs & his willingness to charter into unknown territory of doing something on his own that the middle class parents always dread.  With a small sum of 35 lakhs mostly from his savings & small loans from friends and family, the film was shot handheld mostly with non-actors on more than 18 locations over a span of 22 days in Delhi & suburbs.
