Anubhav Sinha’s Kabootar to be premiered at the Osian Film Festival

A new film about a new director Maqbool Khan's violent growing-up years in a small town in Rajasthan, is about to give the censor board the heebie-jeebies. And though the producer Anubhav Sinha suspects trouble ahead, the film's graphic language and strong violent content got an unexpected boost from French quarters. Says Anubhav, "Francis d'Silva who works closely with Luc Besson took a shine to the film Kabootar. He was instrumental in getting Kabootar into the Osian film festival. The film is being screened there on 17 July." Anubhav hopes the unexpunged screening would invoke enough appreciation to give the film a censorial head start. "Otherwise it might be ruthlessly chopped off." Kabootar directed by Anubhav Sinha's former assistant Maqbool Khan is arguably the most violent Hindi film ever made. Set in Dholpur in Rajasthan, it depicts the criminalization of teenagers in North India. 13 and 14-year old boys are shown as savage murderers and criminals. Says a source, "In Kabootar, the director Maqbool has made Vishal Bhardwaj's depiction of crime and atonement in Maqbool look like a fairytale." Says Sinha, "Kabootar is undoubtedly a blood-splattered film. But it's hugely emotional and intense. I'd place it in the same genre as Fernando Meirelles' City Of God about lost wayward kids
