The first look of Haraamkhor, directed by Shlok Sharma and produced by Anurag Kashyap, was unveiled last week. The film that stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shweta Tripthai is based in a small town in Gujarat. Siddiqui plays a schoolteacher, who has more than an academic interest in one of his female students (Tripathi).
While the release date of the film is yet to be announced, in one of the earlier interviews to Screen, Sharma had mentioned that it will go for a festival round before the theatrical release. And it’s no surprise then that it’s premiering at Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles in April. Sharma confirmed and said that after the premiere, there are plans to take it to other festivals. Sharma also shared that Haraamkhor
was written in three days and with a preproduction of 12 days, the team went on floor. “We wrapped the film within 16 days of shoot.
Somehow, I owe the capability to finish a feature film within such limited resource and time to my short film making experience,” Sharma remarked, also referring to his shortfilms — Tubelight Ka Chand and Hidden Cricket.
