Indian Panorama promises to showcase riveting films from different parts of the country at IFFI 2015 in Goa

Indian Panorama promises to showcase riveting films from different parts of the country at IFFI 2015 in Goa


~ Indian Panorama Section to screen 26 Feature and 21 Non-Feature films ~

~The list of films includes internationally acclaimed films like Court, Masaan, Radiopetti, Katyar Kaljat Ghusali and Cinemawala ~

While the above mentioned films are no doubt commendable, the selection of a purely commercial artless film like ~Salman Khan-starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan raises questions as to the competence of the jury. Nevertheless, there's hope that at least some of the films on offer will be worthy of International praise.

------

The Indian Panorama section of 46th International Film Festival of India (IFFI 2015) will have a stellar lineup of the best of Indian cinema from various parts of the country. The film festival will showcase 26 Feature and 21 Non-Feature films that raise a toast to the work of many talented Indian filmmakers.
