Lord Curzon Ki Haveli to premiere at Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2023

Lord Curzon Ki Haveli, which marks the directorial debut of Anshuman Jha and stars Rasika Dugal, will have its world premiere at the Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2023.

Expected to be a black comedy thriller, Lord Curzon Ki Haveli also stars Arjun Mathur, Rasika Dugal, Paresh Pahuja, Zoha Rahman and Tanmay Dhanini. The film will premiere in the festival under the Centrepiece Spotlight Film (Official Selection - Out Of Competition).

Written by Bikas Mishra, the film will focus on the Asian diaspora in the UK and will be shot on a single lens. The shooting has been completed.

Speaking about the premiere, Anshuman Jha, “I am thrilled to present Lord Curzon Ki Haveli at Indian Film Festival Of Melbourne 2023. I thank the jury at IFFM 2023 for selecting us as the Centrepiece Spotlight. And I am very grateful to my team & Golden Ratio Films for their trust & support through this challenging but memorable experience. We are excited to start the film's festival festival run in Australia & I hope the audience enjoys this cinematic journey. I hope Mr Alfred Hitchcock is blessing us from there as this is my homage to him.”

Adding to this, Rasika said, “It was an absolute joy collaborating with, and playing off, my co-actors who helped me experience Ira in a very special way - a woman who navigates and negotiates patriarchy with an undeniable spirit and with a sense of mischief. I hope the film resonates with the audience.”

The film is backed by Golden Ratio Films and First Ray Films.
