Gurvinder Singh's film bags Golden Peacock at IFFI
Debutante director, Gurvinder Singh, whose film Anhey Ghorey Da Daan (Alms for the Blind Horse) has won praises and prizes in film festivals all around the world, is on cloud nine with his film bagging the coveted Golden Peacock Award at the International Film festival of India (IFFI), that concluded in Goa two days back.
First to congratulate Singh was Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari. In his message, Tewari said, "Your success will spur the growth of Punjabi cinema and will encourage young directors to direct films that reflect concerns of society at large. Your achievement is an important milestone for the growth of regional cinema in the country."
Produced by the National Film Development Corporation and based on Punjabi novelist Gurdial Singh's novel, the film attempts to translate to screen the effect years of subordination can bring to struggling masses in the face of events spinning beyond their control.
Incidentally, Anhey Ghorey Da Daan has already won three National awards.
