Trance, Kaithi, Jersey and Super 30 be screened at IIFFT 2020
The International Indian Film Festival Toronto (IIFFT) held annually aims to promote Indian cinema in North America. Selected films from different languages will be screened at the festival. This year, the Malayalam film ‘Trance’, Karthi’s ‘Kaithi’, Nani’s sports drama Jersey and the Hrithik Roshan starrer ‘Super 30’ are among the Indian feature films that will be screened at IIFFT, scheduled to be held from August 9 to 15.
Earlier this year, Anwar Rasheed directorial ‘Trance’ had its theatrical release amidst huge expectations. However, the film failed to satisfy the majority. Though the attempt was appreciated, even critic reviews were mixed. Fahadh Faasil’s performance still earned unanimous praise.
The other three films – ‘Kaithi’, ‘Jersey’ and ‘Super 30’ were all big blockbusters. ‘Kaithi’ and ‘Jersey’ are also getting remade in Bollywood. While Ajay Devgn plays the lead in ‘Kaithi’ remake, the Hindi version of ‘Jersey’ has Shahid Kapoor reprising Nani’s role of a cricketer. Shoot for the same is at the halfway stage.
