After making a round around various International film festivals, Deb Medhekar’s Bioscopewala has finally got an official release date in India. A modern-day reading of Tagore’s heart-wrenching classic, ‘Kabuliwala’, Bioscopewala extrapolates the characters and their conflicts, exploring alternative endings and experiences.

When a famous photographer goes missing on a plane to Kabul, his daughter flies back to India to try and understand why he was going there. Pieces begin falling together as an old Afghan bioscopewala is released from prison and brought home.

“Remaking a classic warrants a change in perspective, relooking at the social mores, at interpersonal relationships as they stand today. For me, Kabuliwala was a classic story restricted to school textbooks. Through Bioscopewala, I wanted to embark with my audience on a journey to rediscover who he was -- what his travails meant -- what the essential, innocent core was, that time had managed to make distant," Medhekar said in a statement.

Bioscopewala stars legendary actor Danny Denzongpa, Geetanjali Thapa, Tisca Chopra and Adil Hussain. Presented by Fox Star Studios in association with Star India, the film is produced by Sunil Doshi and will be released in theatres on 25th May 2018.
