Mumbai Film Festival 2016 – Day 6 Must Watch!

Here are the recommendation for the second last day of the fest.


1:30pm – Lantouri – A redemption tale of an acid attack survivor, this film would be something we Indians could certainly relate to. Hollywood Reporter has loved it –

8:30pm – Trapped – One of the biggest Indian films of the festival, Trapped is director Vikramadity Motwane’s latest film. It features a character trapped in an apartment in Mumbai for 25 days.


3:30pm – Lipstick Under My Burkha – The trailer made quite a few ripples in the online world. It is a film about four women trying to satisfy their hidden desires in conservative small town India.

8:00pm – Letters from War – The screendaily is mighty impressed, ‘extraordinary non-narrative work illustrates the ability of the imaginative spirit – embodied here by a novelist in a combat zone – to find beauty and hope even amid horror and the soul-crushing tedium of the military condition.’

11:00am – Clash – One of the most exciting films on offer this year, Clash is set entirely inside a police van during the recent clashes between the Muslim Brotherhood and Pro- Egyptian Army supporters. Here’s the Guardian waxing eloquent about it –
5:00pm – Things to come – When a highly regarded critic like Mark Kermode recommends a film, it just cannot be missed. Also it stars the always magnificent Isabelle Huppert in the lead role.



7:30pm – An Insignificant Man – A documentary film on Arvind Kejriwal got a standing ovation at the festival yesterday. Seems unmissable.


3:00pm – Elle – Legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert gives a standout performance in this thriller in which she plays the CEO of a successful video game company who tries to learn the identity of the man who raped her.  

5:45pm – Red Turtle – The latest film from the Japanese animation power house Studio Ghibli, this one’s a dialogue-less film that follows the major life stages of a castaway on a deserted tropical island populated by turtles, crabs and birds. If you have seen any of Studio Ghibli’s films, you wouldn’t be missing this one.
