Tough luck:  Sanjay Gupta

The house started off producing two films, which were slated to chart new territories in the realm of ‘new age sensibility’ movies, but fell flat at the box office — The Great Indian Butterfly and Pankh.

Yet Sanjay is happy that TGIB has already been invited to prestigious film festivals like the Indo-America Arts Council Film Festival and the River to River, Florence Indian Film Festival, which is the first festival in the world devoted entirely to films from and about India. Says director Sarthak Dasgupta, “TGIB is a realistic, highly-relatable take on an urban relationship and has been critically-acclaimed and celebrated in over 12 international film festivals.”

Pankh is a heart-rendering tale of a young man with a traumatic past, set out to reveal the sordid reality of gender confusion within a dramatic and controversial context. The film is about a young boy who plays girls’ roles on screen. “Pankh was Bollywood’s wildest take so far, because it was a shocking, provocative film with a powerful script and an exciting cast,” says director Sudipto.
