Masaan Movie release date 24th July 2015
Four lives intersect along the Ganges: a low caste boy in hopeless love, a daughter ridden with guilt of a sexual encounter ending in a tragedy, a hapless father with fading morality, and a spirited child yearning for a family, long to escape the moral constructs of a small-town.
Winner of the FIPRESCI prize and Promising Future Award in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes 2015, MASAAN revolves around four lives intersecting along the Ganges: a low caste boy hopelessly in love, a young woman ridden with guilt of a sexual encounter ending in a tragedy, a hapless father with a fading morality, and a spirited child yearning for a family- as they try to escape the moral constructs of small-town India.
Set against the divine landscape of Banaras, MASAAN is a celebration of Life, Death and Everything in Between.
