Our take

Offering an invigorating and very personal perspective on drug addiction, director Ronny Sen’s debut paints a bleak yet stunning portrait of an unseen Kolkata. Creative cinematography and authentic, knife-edge performances are key anchors in this mosaic of stories about desperation and survival.
