Sobhita Dhulipala

World Sales: Stray Dogs

 Distribution: Stray Dogs

Raghavan, a bad-boy cop fuelled on coke and sex, investigates a series of murders. Ramanna, the killer, is a soft-spoken, but persuasive manipulator, who outwits everyone, especially the police. Their lives entwine as they become obsessed with one another.

Psycho Raman may be a high-strung crime film, but it is also a richly layered one. Kashyap has integrated personal portraits of an anti-hero cop and a fascinating killer into his cynical work. Set against the backdrop of Mumbai’s grimy hidden crannies, the result is a macabre tapestry, exotic to western eyes.

Winner of the Crossovers Grand Prix in 2016, the Festival is pleased to reprise this unforgettable thriller on the occasion of Anurag Kashyap’s jury participation and its French release.
