Sundance Film Festival has unveiled its line-up for the next edition. Geetu Mohandas’ debut feature Liar’s Dice has been selected for the festival to premiere in “World Cinema Dramatic Competition” section.
Here’s the note on the film from the official release – “Liar’s Dice” (India) — Directed and written by Geetu Mohandas. The story of a young woman who leaves her native land with her daughter to search for her missing husband, encountering a free-spirited army deserter along the way. Cast: Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Geetanjali Thapa, Manya Gupta. International premiere.
The film has been shot by Rajeev Ravi.
And this was our snippet review from Mumbai Film Festival daily report when it screened – Liar’s Dice – Set in difficult weather and tough terrain, Kamala (Geentajali Thapa) is looking for her missing husband. From moutains to plains, from Delhi to a single-bed room in a shady hotel, her companion is a selfish and untrustworthy stranger Nawazuddin (Siddiqui). A stark, grim and almost unsentimental portrayal of urban migration. Has a charming kid too. Looking forward to Geetu Mohandas’s next.
