A Anurag Kashyap Film in Malayalam and Hindi


14-year-old Mulla undertakes a perilous journey to find his long-lost brother in this breathtaking feature from director Geetu Mohandas, her second after India’s 2014 Oscar entry, LIAR’S DICE. Leaving his mundane existence behind and taking a boat to the bustling streets of Mumbai, Mulla almost immediately falls in with a group of Dickensian young kids who undertake petty crimes at the behest of a local crime boss. As Mulla draws closer to the truth of his brother Akbar’s whereabouts while avoiding the dangers of living on the streets, we learn in flashback about the heartache that led to Akbar’s disappearance.

Mohandas’ film skillfully shifts between the pulse-pounding thrills of action cinema and a surprising, beautifully-rendered love story that handles queer themes with delicacy and grace. In exploring questions of gender, queer love, and familial bonds on such a grand, sweeping scale, she delivers a film that feels almost unprecedented.
