A Death in the Gunj

Directed by Konkona Sen Sharma

When a shy and sensitive university student goes on vacation with his self-involved relatives and family friends, he discovers that there is a heavy price to pay for gentleness.

Konkana Sen Sharma’s award-winning debut feature is a measured and layered study of the repressed tensions, rivalries and violent masculinity. This period piece features an impressive ensemble cast made up of some of India’s best actors including Ranvir Shorey, Kalki Koechlin, Tillotama Shome, Vikrant Massey, Gulshan Devaiah, Jim Sarbh and Om Puri.
