Killa appreciated at Mumbai Film Festival

'Killa', which won the Crystal Bear for Best Film in Generation K Plus Category in the 64th year of Berlin Film Festival (2014) and also got a special mention from the International Jury, was appreciated at the Mumbai Film Festival.


Alot of movie buffs took to the micro blogging sites to praise the film.

Killa is the third Marathi film to be selected in Berlinale in its entire history and it is the first Indian feature film to win this much coveted award.

The film is about a child and his working mother (Amruta Subhash) and what happens to him when they go through relocation from big city like Pune to small town Guhagar. It is a coming of age movie about the kinds of changes which the child experiences in terms of culture, food, climate and people.

Post the release of the film, there has been no looking back for the director, of movie Avinash Arun, a graduate of FTII. "It was more of nostalgia for me, since I had also experienced a similar thing. I always used to think about the many childhood friends whom I have lost because of relocating to different cities. It is a documentation of such moments. I recently finished shooting with Nishikant Kamat for a film with Irrfan. And 'Killa' has been travelling all over the world. It has changed a lot of things for me. Most of the people know about me in the industry and they have heard about the film. The kind of responses I have got from the industry is overwhelming."

He has earlier worked on Kai Po Che and is currently working as the Director of Photography for Nishikant Kamat's next starring Irrfan Khan.

The film will release in January 2015.
