We had earlier reported on sound designer-turned-filmmaker Nithin Lukose's directorial debut Paka (River of Blood) making its premiere at the 46th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The crime drama, which has filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Raj R as co-producers, is set to premiere on SonyLIV on July 7.
The film’s synopsis reads: “In North Kerala, a serpentine river witness to the long and bloody cycle of vengeance between two feuding families. Johnny and Anna, a young couple, wish to end the hatred within their families with their love and begin a life together. However, the return of Johnny’s uncle Kocheppu, after imprisonment and his subsequent disappearance becomes a hurdle in their path of love and forces them onto the path of blood, murder, and revenge.”
