SUNRISE

Drama, Thriller
Social Service officer Lakshman Joshi, played by Adil Hussain (Life of Pi) is led on a chase through the dark gutters and rain-soaked back alleys of Mumbai by a shadowy figure. His pursuit leads him to Paradise, a seedy nightclub seemingly at the center of the kidnapping ring he is investigating. Joshi's hunt brings back memories of his own kidnapped daughter, and as his investigation pushes forward his past and present reality begin to converge.

Partho Sen-Gupta, one of India’s most promising directors, delivers a strong homage to film noir in this beautifully crafted psychological thriller exploring the mental anguish of a lonely man on a quest for justice.

—Frédéric Boyer
