This section has been carefully designed to foster a dialogue between movie stars and the public, honoring the world’s cinematic talent and showcasing an exceptional lineup of films—all while adhering to the festival’s fundamental principles.</p>
<p>World premieres of the feature films Farrey (Hindi), featuring young talent and produced by Salman Khan, Gandhi Talks (Silent) starring Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathy and Aditi Rao Hydari with music by A.R. Rahman, Kadak Singh (Hindi) starring Pankaj Tripathi and Parvathy Thiruvothu, Hurry Om Hurry (Gujarati) starring Siddharth Randheria, Rautu Ki Beli (Hindi) featuring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Grey Games (Kannada) starring Vijay Raghvendra, two series from Amazon Originals, Dhootha (Telugu) starring Naga Chaitanya Parvathy Thiruvothu and The Village (Tamil) starring Arya, besides Asia premieres of Dil Hai Gray (Hindi), starring Akshay Oberoi and Urvashi Rautela, and Dear Jassi (Punjabi) by Tarsem Singh are set to take place at IFFI.</p>
<p>Karan Johar and Sara Ali Khan will have a special showcase with a chat about the film Ae Watan Mere Watan.</p>
<p>“I extend a warm and gracious welcome to the esteemed filmmakers and talented actors of “Farrey,” produced by Salman Khan; “Gandhi Talks,,” produced by ZEE and featuring Arvind Swami and Vijay Sethupathi; “Kadak Singh,” starring Pankaj Tripathi; the Amazon Original series “Dhootha,” starring Naga Chaitanya and Parvathy Thiruvothu; and “The Village,” starring Arya and Divya Pillai, among other celebrated artists, including AR Rahman and Urvashi Rautela.” This cinematic spectacle is enhanced by the presence of the legendary Tarsem Singh. The Gala premiere is especially fitting for our most recent campaign, “Meri Mitti Mera Desh,” which honors films produced in the North, East, South, and West. We all get together to enjoy Goa’s greatest cinematic experience!</p>
<p>“We are reminded that film is a universal language that transcends borders and cultures as we gather at IFFI to celebrate the art of cinema from around the world,” said Mr. Prithul Kumar, MD of NFDC & Festival Director. The power of storytelling is shown in the Gala premiere part, and we are honored to screen these engrossing movies that will uplift and inspire viewers. Let the love of storytelling bring us all together via the enchantment of the silver screen.</p>
<p>While Kishor Padurang Belekar’s “Gandhi Talks” delves into a social commentary that explores the depths of capitalism, racism, and society at large with intriguing references to Hindu mythology and the story of “Samudra Manthan,” Soumendra Padhi’s “Farrey” promises an exciting journey just waiting to be unraveled.</p>
<p>Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury’s film “Kadak Singh” tells the tale of AK Srivastava, a Department of Financial Crimes inspector who suffers from retrograde amnesia. Despite his illness, he manages to unravel the intricate mystery of the Chit Fund Scam by hearing many accounts of his past and how he got into the hospital. Milind Rau’s film “The Village” transports viewers on a spooky road journey that turns deadly as a family is attacked by a mutant clan.</p>
<p>The Gala Premieres section of the 54th IFFI, which features a number of other outstanding films like “Hurry Om Hurry,” “Dear Jassi,” “Rautu Ki Beli,” “Dhootha,” “Dil Hai Gray,” and “Grey Games,” provides a varied and engrossing cinematic experience that questions perceptions, explores human emotions, and ventures into the world of suspense and mystery.</p>
