Lead cast Bollywood Heartthrob Purab H Kohli and the stunning Kirti Kulhari, along with Director of the film Girish Malik, who were in Mangalore to promote their upcoming movie, ‘JAL’, charmed fans across the city. The trio interacted with students of St Aloysious University, Manipal University, Mangalore University and Nitte University at the St Aloysious University campus followed by interaction with the media at a press conference held at Cinepolis Multiplex in City Center Mall.
Produced by OneWorld, in association with Clapstem Productions and NFDC, and distributed by DAR Film Distributors, the film is scheduled to hit the silver screen on 4th April 2014. JAL stars Purab H Kohli, Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain amongst others. Another key highlight of the film is that it marks the official debut of Sonu Nigam and Bikram Ghosh as music directors.
Commenting on the film Girish Malik said, “Jal to me is a project that is larger than life itself, the film, a wholesome entertainer is about human interaction and true love in all its honesty, albeit told in a very commercially entertaining way laced with rib tickling good humor.”
Jal is the story of a young water diviner, BAKKA who is gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert. With the backdrop of water paucity, the film tells a complex and fascinating story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of human character. It is a high-octane, action- drama with a shocking climax. Shot on an epic scale, the film is a visual treat and has managed to capture ‘Rann Of Kutch’ like never before prompting even ‘The Hollywood Reporter’ to applaud Jal as “a breathtakingly photographed tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.”
Jal was also the only Indian film to have made it to the prestigious in-competition segment of the recently concluded Busan International Film Festival and was also more recently the official selection in the Indian Panorama section at IFFI Goa.
Other credits include : Story & Dialogs- Rakesh Mishra; Screenplay – Girish Malik and Rakesh Mishra; Director of Photography – Sunita Radia, Sound Design- Sound Ideaz Studio, Action – Parvez Khan
