Still from Kshay

Kshay directed by Karan Gour, the Grand Jury Prize winner at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles 2012 is scheduled for a theatrical release on June 15 under the ‘PVR Director’s Rare’ label.

The film revolves around a lower middle-class housewife’s obsession to possess an unfinished statue of the Goddess Lakshmi. And how this obsession infects everything around her – her home, her dreams and even the only family she’s got, her husband Arvind.

Kshay has been produced independently over 4 years with a two-man crew – the director Karan Gour and the DOP Abhinay Khoparzi. Karan Gour has also written, edited, co-produced and done the sound design of the film.

The film features Rasika Dugal (No Smoking, Agyaat) and Alekh Sangal (Summer of 2007).

The film will have a limited release in Mumbai and Delhi on the 15th of June, with plans to expand it to other cities.

Karan Gour says “PVR Director’s Rare comes in at a ripe time for Indian independent cinema. Our film is in black-and-white and without any stars or songs and it’s really brave of them to support such a film purely based on content. We are excited to see how Indian audiences will react to our film. Even if we slightly alter the paradigm set by commercial cinema and show our audiences a totally different kind of cinema, our goals are achieved.”

Kshay was screened at the 47th Chicago International Film Festival and will now go to 11th Transilvania International Film Festival in Romania.
