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


Critic Reviews for A Death in the Gunj

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

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.

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.

This film will seep into your skin. Hours later, I was thinking about Shutu and his scars, including the ones he leaves behind.

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.

A Death in the Gunj is a fine character study underpinned by a thorough understanding of group dynamics, and as such manages to be both specifically Indian and universal.

A Death In The Gunj will make you drop your jaw several times, except for the one time you'd really want it to: the climax.
