AjobaAt 25, Sujay Dahake made an assured debut with his nostalgia-dipped Shala. We all loved the film, had recco-ed it (here) and did a podcast with the director (here). The film was lying in cans for sometime, got a limited release initially and then went on to become critical and commercial hit.

Sujay is back with a new film titled Ajoba. The first trailer of the film is just out. Based on real events, it stars Urmila Matondkar and Yashpal Sharma. Have a look.

It looks so interesting but more than a trailer it looks like a short film. What do you guys think? Do comment and let us know.

And here’s the official synopsis –

Big Cat’s Big Adventure. Malshej to Mumbai in 29 days: Ajoba the leopard’s ambitious trek. Ajoba was rescued from a well and a tracking device was fixed on his neck, before being released back into the wild. He turned out to be one adventurous cat, as he made his way to Mumbai over the Sahyadris, i.e a cool 120kms.

Faces. Faces. Faces. Vertical. Horizontal. Just faces. Give me more faces.
Is this the brief for designing Prakash Jha’s film posters? Just have a look at the posters of his last four films – Satyagraha, Chakravyuh, Aarakshan and Raajneeti. What else do you see? Nothing.

Another interesting experiment – Try to see one poster and imagine the name of some other Prakash Jha film there. Would it make any difference? Naah.

So who is the culprit? Raise your hand please.
