'Coffee House' goes to Cannes
While Bollywood has been making sure the world knows about our kind of movies, and our cine stars, those zara hatke Indian moviemakers have also
been marking their presence on the global map.
One such person is Sandeep Marwah, whose film, Coffee House, is set to go to the Cannes Film Festival. The film, a Marwah Studios production, has been selected to be shown at Cannes in the Indian Panorama Category.
The film, as Sandeep puts it, “is about the everyday problems we face in our society.” Coffee House is actually a story about a couple who run a newspaper. The husband wants to use the newspaper as his mouthpiece to bring about changes in society, but the wife (Saakshi Tanwar) differs. So, the husband (Ashutosh Rana) starts a theatre group with a bunch of youngsters he meets at a coffee shop and makes plays highlighting the various evils in the society.
Sandeep is obviously thrilled. “We made the film – shot, edited and presented it – in a record time of 28 days. It was shot on the streets of Delhi, and made in the Noida Film City and also had an all India release,” says Sandeep, who is the founder of the Noida Film City. He adds, “The film has been globally acclaimed. But I never thought it will get selected to be shown in such a prestigious festival.” Most importantly, stresses Sandeep, “a filmmaker is a real communicator and every film must leave a positive impact on the minds of viewers.” Here’s to more meaningful cinema, then!
