Haraamkhor (The Wretched)


Location: Bartos Screening Room

Dir. Shlok Sharma. 2015, 90 mins. Digital projection. In Hindi with English subtitles. With Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Shweta Tripathi, Irrfan Khan, Modh Samad. Young Kamal (Khan) is naive in the ways of love, and his only counsel is his best friend, Mintu (Somad), who is just as clueless. Fixated on his beautiful classmate, Sandhya (Tripathi), Kamal discovers what appears to be a secret affair between Sandhya and her married professor, Shyam (Siddiqui). Alternating between innocence and illicitness, comedy and drama, Haraamkhor is an insightful exploration of the baffling, frightfully uneven transition from adolescence to adulthood. “Brave and original. Haraamkhor is one film you shouldn’t miss.”—Hindustan Times
