Runners up - Angry Indian Goddess at Toronto Film Festival !!!








Angry Indian Goddesses are smiling. After bagging the Runners up award at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) directed by Pan Nalin. The story is about a group of Indian girls in Goa gone wild.
Of the seven girls in the film, Sandhya Mridul and Rajshri Deshpande, who were present in the audience, shouted with joy at the announcement of the award for the film.
Toronto film festival CEO Piers Handling said tongue-in-cheek that he hopped “Angry Indian Goddesses” as the audience clapped for the Indian film.
TIFF, the biggest film festival in North America, is traditionally considered to be the start of the awards season, and the People’s Choice Awards have frequently predicted Oscar winners and nominees. Recent TIFF winners that have gone on to win Oscars include 12 Years a Slave, The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire.
The story is a about a planned wedding – although the bride won’t say who she’s getting married to – brings together seven women at a house in Goa, where they learn about each other’s hopes, problems and pressures. This they do with some sharp humor, fights and yes, bitching, before something happens to awaken their inner angry goddess. There is no male lead in the film, although there are a couple of sympathetic male characters among a mostly intolerable lot.

An Indian release is on the cards before the end of the year.
