Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh Starrer, Do Dooni Char has changed the mindset of the Indian Cinema, and now the film will open in the New York Indian Film Festival. New York City’s prestigious Paris Theatre will host the star-studded red carpet May 4 Opening Night premiere of “Do Dooni Chaar”with special guests Kapoor, Singh, and Faisal attending.

The Habib Faisal-directed film marks the Hollywood studio’s first live-action production in India and earned some of the best reviews of any Hindi film in recent years. NYIFF Director Aseem Chhabra says,

“Do Dooni Chaar is a charming and sweet indie film that reflects the realities of a middle-class family in modern day Delhi.”

“Written and directed by first time filmmaker Habib Faisal, the film is a perfect blend of authentic dialogues, characters and situations, with a touch of Bollywood charm. It is a great example of India’s new emerging cinema that has an indie soul, but working within the framework of Bollywood.”

Following the May 8 screening of Rituparno Ghosh’s “Noukadubi”will be a special tribute to Tagore who was born 150 years ago on that day.

Aparna Sen’s “Iti Mrinalini” will premiere as the Centrepiece selection. The Bengali film features Sen and her daughter, award-winning actress Konkona Sen Sharma, both playing the same title role at different ages.
