Seven Visionary Directors. Ten Spectacular Stories. One Cinematic Journey. The visions of seven directors merge in Dus Kahaniyaan. Epic in scale yet meticulously observed, Dus Kahaniyaan boasts of an extraordinary ensemble cast. A highway symbolized two friends’ companionship, their tacit love, but its unpredictable and volatile turns would radically change their lives. A writer is driven to madness after he makes a startling discovery about the woman he loves. Five friends start spinning stories in a story that will spin them around. Through an internal conflict between an underworld Don and his best friend, we weave through a stylish game of friendship and betrayal… Dus Kahaniyaan takes you on a tour of expansive highways and modern romance, of kindly strangers, of lives lived in the realms of power and lives freed from the gloom of oppression. Fortunes are made and squandered, honour betrayed and redeemed, and love lost and rediscovered. Dus Kahaniyaan’s themes run the gamut from loss and betrayal to uprootedness and alienation, and that makes for irresistibly absorbing entertainment. The tales discover poignant moments of connection in one of White Feather Films’ most inimitable and ambitious creations.

In the tradition of film noir that is guaranteed to shock, thrill and surprise. A compelling film from director Hansal Mehta about swiftly changing moralities in today’s world. After a successful businessman’s stunning wife disappears, hostile and taunting ransom demands follow. As the true nature of stakes for the captor and his captives unfold, Woodstock Villa lithely transforms from a precision neo noir into a chilling and shocking thriller, and ultimately into a vivid, invigorating, icy masterpiece of murder, mystery and suspense. Neither pleading eyes nor bound wrists nor a shallow grave are what they seem, as a moment of relief is suddenly transformed into a web of deceit, and a moment of truth is followed by a sudden web of lies. Unsettling, thrilling, hallucinatory, suspenseful and erotic, Woodstock Villa is contemporary entertainment that breaks new ground with every twist. The film debuts Sikander Kher and Neha Uberoi.
SHOOTOUT AT LOKHANDWALA
From director Apoorva Lakhia comes Shootout At Lokhandwala, a shocking, hypnotic look at a real-life disaster. On a calm summer day in 1991, in the bustling Lokhandwala Complex, five criminals including Maya and Dilip were counting 70 lakhs in flat no. 32 B, when 286 policemen, headed by ACP Khan, took strategic positions around their building. A gunfire ensued and the entire nation witnessed the most talked about daylight encounter lasting 6 hours that transformed suburban Mumbai into a virtual war zone. Shootout At Lokhandwala is the story of a seasoned cop, Khan, who chased Khalistani extremists, handpicked cops like Inspector Kaviraj Patil and Constable Javed Shaikh, and dared to engage trigger-happy gangsters in a residential locality of Mumbai. Khan’s fight went beyond the encounter as he faced inquisition from his own department and legal charges of human rights violations. Shootout At Lokhandwala is the story of an upcoming underworld gangster, Maya, and his highly skilled partner, Dilip. The two made extortion the buzzword in the early 90s and dared to disobey the big bhai of the underworld, drawing the attention of Khan and his newly formed ATS squad. Both Khan and Maya were men obsessed, so devoted to their professions that their personal lives were a disaster. Shootout At Lokhandwala explores the personal obsessions and sacrifices of the two protagonists with absorbing insight, with some of the most riveting action sequences to be ever filmed. The film stars Sanjay Dutt, Vivek Oberoi, Arjun Rampal, Tushar Kapur, Arbaaz Khan, Rohit Roy, Sameer Dattani, Shabbir Aluwalia, and Amitabh Bachchan & Abhishek Bachchan.
