Miss LovelyMiss Lovely by Ashim Ahluwalia will be screened at the 12th edition of the East End Festival in London. The festival kicked off on June 25 with the screening of The UK Gold by Mark Donne.

“Set in the seedy, grimy world of India’s so called ‘C grade’ Hindi film industry of the 1980s, Ashim Ahluwalia’s debut feature is another myth-busting film from the new wave of Indian directors,” says the festival website, “A visually ravishing evocation of an era taking in sleazy hotels, abandoned warehouses, damaged wannabe stars and movie loving gangsters, this decade-spanning tragedy has been touted as its country’s answer to P.T. Anderson’s Boogie Nights. It deserves the accolade.”

The film has been selected for the Best Feature Competition at the festival.

After its premiere at Cannes Film Festival in 2012, the film won the Indian Competition at Mumbai Film Festival. It features Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Niharika Singh and Anil George in lead roles.
