Movie Info

A Death in the Gunj is a coming of age story that centres around Shutu, our protagonist, and his conflicted ideas of masculinity. He finds himself navigating the blurred lines of what is accepted in society and questions his own space within the world. The everyday callousness of the adults around him contributes to his intense feelings of isolation despite being surrounded his family. The emotional violence that we as a society inflict upon others unwittingly is what cumulatively leads to a kind of destruction that is irrevocable. - See more at: http://studiozidrream.com/movies/a-death-in-the-gunj/#sthash.E7kYYNWq.dpuf

  • A masterly depiction of how patriarchy can rot a family tree.

  • Although Sensharma seems confident behind the camera, she directs her cast of name actors at too high a pitch. It becomes exhausting to watch their near-manic singing, dancing, and playing games.

  • Konkona Sen Sharma directs a film that starts as a family drama, but the sense that something bad is going to happen (which starts with the initial scene) is there and becomes more palpable as the story progresses

    December 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Perhaps the best compliment I can afford is this: A Death In The Gunj is a film that Konkona, the actor, would have chosen in a heartbeat.

    February 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This film will seep into your skin. Hours later, I was thinking about Shutu and his scars, including the ones he leaves behind.

    September 6, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Special word then for Vikrant Massey, the beautiful boy who lays bare the innocence, sensitivity, vulnerability and torment of Shutu with such fluidity that it's hard to imagine any other actor owning the role.
