Vkaao to bring Shoplifters to India
India's first theatre-on-demand platform is also bringing other renowned foreign language films to India
India's first theatre-on-demand platform, Vkaao, has now introduced Vkaao Gems which will bring renowned foreign language films to cinemas in India. Vkaao Gems held its first screening last Friday with Oscar-nominated Lebanese film Capernaum across six cities in India including Chennai, Hyderabad, and Bangalore. With the Japanese film Shoplifters scheduled to hit the screens in July, it will be followed by Mandarin film Ash is Purest White, Yomeddine (Egypt/Arabic), Taxi 5, The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales (French), and Tokyo Ghoul S (Japanese). Tickets for these films will be listed on Book My Show.
Shoplifters, which released last year, is about a non-biological family that relies on shoplifting to cope with a life of poverty. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year and went on to get nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and the Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
