The Hungry

Directed by Bornila Chatterjee

This strikingly crafted UK-Indian co-production is a murderous and twisted adaptation of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus that stages a story of revenge, family and betrayal in the contemporary world of an affluent Indian elite. Naseeruddin Shah (Monsoon Wedding), one of Indian cinema’s greatest actors, delivers an exquisite masterclass in political skullduggery. Also in fine form is Tisca Chopra (Qissa) and rising British star Antonio Aakeel (Eaten By Lions).
