In complete awe of Gandhi’s direction, the 39-year-old says, “It’s an unusual film. It has a very interesting concept and is made with a lot of integrity. It is well-written, beautifully performed and incredibly well-shot film. In terms of cinema, it’s a complete film to watch.”
And though Rao agrees that the film is meant for a niche audience, she is hopeful of a good response. “It is for a certain kind of audience, but I’m hoping that the response will be much bigger than we can imagine. It’s niche because it has a certain narrative, idiom and structure. The language of the cinema is different from what you would expect from a regular, commercial film. But that doesn’t mean it won’t attract audiences. It will probably just be a smaller audience as compared to a regular, big film,” she says.
