Uljhan (The Knot) to be screened at Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles
The film follows a married couple who injure a pedestrian in an accident
Director Ashish Pant's debut film Uljhan (The Knot) will be screened in competition at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles. The film was previously screened at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where it received positive reviews.
Uljhan/The Knot, starring Saloni Batra and Vikas Kumar, is the story of a married couple who injure a pedestrian in a car accident. The film traces their life after the accident and how they deal with its implications.
Uljhan is produced by Route one Productions in association with Kartikeya Narayan Singh and Christopher Zalla. Kartkeya has produced independent and arthouse films like Anhe Ghore Da Daan, Chauthi Koot, Soni, and Khanaur.
“My journey for Uljhan began when I applied to NFDC Film Bazaar,” Ashish shared about his debut venture. “The script for Uljhan was one of the 18 projects selected for the co-production market where I met Kartikeya whose work I really admire. On my urging, he agreed to read the script and Uljhan came to life".
Talking about his association with Ashish, Kartikeya said, “I am always on the lookout for emerging and new directorial talent. Having read the script and meeting Ashish at the NFDC Film bazaar, I immediately recognised that this was a talent-driven by integrity, focus, hard work and craftsmanship.”
