Court appreciated at Mumbai Film Festival

Chaitanya Tamhane’s film 'Court', which has been made in Marathi, Hindi, English and Gujarathi, is in the news these days.

Director Chaitanya Tamhane's legal drama Court won the best film award in the international competition section, which honors the first film by a director. This is the first time an Indian film has won in this section.

Court also earned a best director nod and a special jury mention for its ensemble cast. At this year's Venice Film Festival, Court won the Lion of the Future award.

PLOT
A sewerage worker's dead body is found inside a manhole in Mumbai. An ageing folk singer is tried in court on charges of abetment of suicide. He is accused of performing an inflammatory song which might have incited the worker to commit the act. As the trial unfolds, the personal lives of the lawyers and the judge involved in the case are observed outside the court.
