A vacationing couple are disturbed by the arrival of the wife’s ex-lover, opening wounds that are best left unhealed; but their troubles have only begun. They are being hunted by a leopard that’s turned man-eater and will stop at nothing to satisfy its hunger.
More than a hundred and fifty people are injured or killed in leopard and tiger attacks in India every year because of poaching and encroachment in the wilderness.
Once a predator becomes used to the taste of human flesh he becomes a man-eater.
Basharat is an 18 year old soccer player coached by a gritty couple from South America. He has been selected to play in Brazil. This is his big ticket out of a state ravaged by years of brutal insurgencies — except he is being denied a passport by the government of India. Basharat’s father, Bashir, was a militant who surrendered and spent years in jail, endured torture at infamous interrogation centers of the same government. According to the unwritten rules in Kashmir, an ex-militant’s family is almost never granted a passport — that document of belonging of a country that claims Kashmiri identity as part of its own. Inshallah, football is about the difficulty of dreaming in Kashmir.
Coke-snorting Sharon (Koel Puri) and a nameless strong, silent stranger (Irrfan Khan), are brought together by a road-chase in the surreal moonscapes of Ladakh, when a mechanic mistakenly exchanges their car tires.
“they make a desolation and call it peace.” Agha Shahid Ali, poet.
Home to a syncretic and mystical culture, its heritage of learning, its arts and craft - crucible of Buddhism, Hinduism and Sufi-Islam. Its verdant forests, snow-capped peaks. Its guileless, beautiful people. This is the story of a conflict that has ruptured much of that - leaving, in its wake, a people brutalised by two-decades of militancy and its terrible response.

A delightful, heart-warming romp through the lives of boys growing up at The Doon School, the ‘Eton’ of India; arguably India’s most famous boarding school whose alumni comprises of some highly distinguished, prominent achievers in Indian public life.

Migrants undergo perilous journeys, risking drowning, deportation, arrest, physical and sexual violence in true hope of finding a place of greater safety and economic opportunity in a distant country. Those who survive the journey become nannies, housekeepers and drivers– ever present yet willing themselves to disappear into the multitudes of the new country. In the best scenario, their dreams become realized, enabling their children’s education. In the worst, stories of horror are rendered reality – locked away in homes by nationals, abused without recourse and kept in fear. This is a film about three distinct women who undertook these perils in hope of a better life.
Jamal, a 12 year old Muslim Pakistani mistakenly crosses the border between India and Pakistan, finding an unusual ally in a Hindu Brahmin, Bhola. Indian soldiers descend on Bhola’s village searching for the ‘terrorist’ who crossed over. His niece, Rani, insists they can’t let a Muslim into their Hindu home. With Bhola and Rani grappling with the consequences of harbouring a Pakistani and their deep-set prejudice against Muslims, Jamal’s only hope is the humanity shared by a people separated by artificial boundaries a long time ago.
