in competition: Newton (Opening Feature)
Category: Feature Films | Duration: 106 min | Language: Hindi, Gondi with English ST
A black comedy. Despite the numerous comical moments, sometimes the laughter stays in the throat. Newton, the lead character, is a man with ironclad principles. When he is employed as an election campaigner in the middle of the jungle, he quickly reaches the end of his tether, as it is difficult in the jungle, if not impossible, to act correctly and remain true to your principles in every situation. He must not only deal with shady military forces and stubborn regional administrators, in order to ensure the election is properly conducted, but also with the locals, who do not appear to be particularly interested in exercising their democratic right to vote.
