Gattu wins at NY film fest

Movies like Gattu are changing the face of Indian cinema as they are making people aware about underprivileged children and their upliftment.

Directed by Rajan Khosa, Gattu received accolades at the New York Indian Film Festival where it bagged the best film and best young actor awards. ‘I am so happy and it sounds like an understatement when I say that. I called up Samad’s (who plays Gattu) parents to tell them the great news, they are so excited. These awards and festivals have been very motivating,’ says Rajan.

Set in Roorkey,  Gattu revolves around the passion of kite flying and the protagonist’s tryst with education. ‘The film combines my passion of kite-flying and filmmaking. An underprivledged child stands outside a school and watches school kids having fun. This inspired the film’, says Rajan.

‘I was certain that Gattu will fetch a few international awards. But to get jury prizes and audience awards together is great fun. I’m sure the Indian audience will accept it,’ says Rajan.
