Yoodlee Films known for consistently creating quality cinema that has been lauded by critics and struck a relevant chord with millennial audiences – has announced their next project. Titled 'AGRA', the film will be directed by Kanu Behl, whose debut film TITLI wowed audiences and critics worldwide. Kanu Behl’s first film TITLI established his credentials firmly as a storyteller with a strikingly original voice to look out for and opened to massive critical acclaim all over the world. TITLI traveled to more than twenty major festivals worldwide including 2104 edition of Cannes Film Festival and won several awards in various categories. AGRA, being Kanu Behl’s next, therefore promises to be a film to look out for in the months to come.
AGRA has an ensemble cast of talented actors in its ranks, headlined by Rahul Roy who makes a comeback with this film. The film also features Priyanka Bose, Mohit Agarwal and Ruhani Sharma, Vibha Chibber, Sonal Jha and Aanchal Goswami in pivotal roles. AGRA delves into sexual dynamics that operate within a close dysfunctional family unit. In a country where there are topics that are rarely explored with any amount of sensitivity, Kanu Behl's vision is a refreshing take on sexual politics with family members and the merging consequences in their inter-personal relationships.
Director Kanu Behl says, "AGRA is a story of a cosmos of a family – throbbing and pulsating, hunting and escaping the very dynamic energies that people in the family inhabit. It’s an exploration of space in an increasingly crowded world, and the quest for a sexual odyssey of an individual here. Having a production house like Yoodlee Films to come on-board and back this project gives me confidence in their commitment to creating meaningful cinema – cinema which is at once relevant and unique in content."
Siddharth Anand Kumar, Producer Yoodlee Films and VP, Films and TV Saregama India said, "AGRA continues the commitment of Yoodlee Films to create quality cinema, championing a good script above all else, fearless in its choice of subjects, and to be counted amongst the best in the world. The fact that we have a talent like Kanu Behl in charge of bringing this riveting story to screen makes this an exciting proposition to look out for all cine-goers."
AGRA will be shot in and around the beautiful city of Agra and will go on floors this month. The film is expected to hit theatres by next year.
