DAR Film Distributors (DFD), a wholly-owned subsidiary of DAR Media, will distribute Jal directed by Girish Malik. The film is scheduled for release in India on March 21, 2014.
Jal was selected in the New Currents section at Busan International Film Festival 2013 and was recently screened in Indian Panorama at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), Goa.
The film stars Purab Kohli, Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain amongst others.
Jal revolves around a young man who is gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert. With the backdrop of water scarcity, the film tells a complex story of love, relationships, enmity and deceit.
Murli Chhatwani, Head- Distribution & Syndication, Dar Film Distributors, said, “We at DAR have always given prominence to content driven entertainers, whether it is with the ones that we produce ourselves or the ones we get involved in at a later stage. The success of The Lunchbox has further validated our confidence in Indian audiences and their interest in contemporary and quality cinema. Moreover, judging by the applause that Jal has received both in the international circuit as well as amongst the diverse Indian audience at the IFFI screenings, along with the way Kutch has been captured in the film, we are very positive about its success.”
