Golden Camera Award for Insia Dariwala’s Cock-Tale at Nashik Intl Film Fest

Writer-Director Insia Dariwala’s latest flick Cock-Tale won Golden Camera Award in 6th Nashik International Film Festival, NIFF 2014. This Indie film-maker is back with Cock-Tale after award winning Candy Man which won her two Best Director awards in India and was also nominated at the New York Short Film Festival & Barcelona International Film Festival in 2010. Like Candy Man, Insia again choose a hard-hitting subject. In the present social context where every minute close to 24 women are raped around the world, Cock-Tale is reply to this society.

Cock-Tale is a chilling drama which unfolds in a small village that houses both a saint, and a sinner. Apoorva is a young, middle-class village girl who nurtures big city dreams; dreams that also include becoming a doctor and saving her mother from a terminal heart disease. Unfortunately, one night, throwing caution to the wind, Apoorva makes the mistake of venturing into the den of Umesh-a man most known for his eccentricities and weird pets. However, what she and no one else know is that this otherwise reticent man harbours some dark, dirty secrets in his house. One such secret rocks Apoorva’s world, but just as she is reeling from the shock, Umesh walks in on her. There is no escape now as Umesh unleashes his world of debauchery. What follows next is a bizarre game of survival between good and evil.

“This film is my unheard voice, it is the voice of millions of women across the world who have been raped, molested, and brutally tortured every day. It is for all those survivors who wish, hope and pray for justice every minute of their lives,” elaborates Insia.

Insia has also directed documentary film ‘Surviving Deonar’ and was Co-directed award winning international documentary ‘17 Not Required Indians’, which recently also won a Special Mention at MIFF 2014.


Brief on Writer-Director Insia Dariwala

Insia Dariwala is an Advertising and Mass Communications graduate from F.I.T, New York. Insia’s career spans across various fields. Her career in the film Industry started as an Assistant Director on independent films and television projects. She wrote for television shows like Gladrags Mrs.India 2010, Radha Ki Betiyan, Ajeeb etc. and went on to win the ITA best thriller award for the 9X show Ajeeb.

Insia is coming up with her second short film Cock-Tale after award winning The Candy Man.

Director’s note

Every minute close to 24 women are raped around the world. In the past one year India itself has seen a drastic increase in its number of rapes. The most horrific one being the Nirbhaya case that took place in December 2012 and rocked every woman to her very core. But the horrific nature of this rape was not just restricted to one woman. There are many such cases that have gone unreported. The ones that do get reported hardly see any convictions. Lack of a proper judicial system, corruption, and most importantly the depiction of power through force, is one of the many reasons why rapes will never stop happening. More so, since every time a rape happens there is also a justification attached to it.

As a woman I am appalled to be born in a country where male dominance is often displayed through acts of physical torture, where honor killing is rampant and acceptable, where a father feels justified in raping his daughter to restore lost honor, where a brother can rape his sister just to make sure she never intervenes in the family business anymore- how can there ever be a resolution to something that may perhaps never be looked at as a crime?

The government is slowly awakening but we still have a long way to go in instilling fear in the perpetrators.

Makers of Bombay Velvet postpone release dates to avoid clash with Aamir Khan starrer PK

Mumbai, March 2014: The rumors running around claim that Anurag Kashyap’s dream project Bombay Velvet with Ranbir Kapoor & Anushka Sharma will not release as per the schedule. zoOm brings you the exclusive scoop from its sources that the release of Aamir Khan’s movie PK on Christmas may lead Anurag to postpone the release of Bombay Velvet. This decision will then call off the clash between Bollywood’s two biggest blockbusters this year.

Sources also reveal that the makers of Bombay Velvet went all out to convince Aamir Khan and producers of PK team to adjust the release dates. However, Aamir denied any such news at his birthday party recently. When zoOm connected with Bombay Velvet’s one of the producer at Fox Star Studios, they completely dumped the news labelling it as a rumor. It seems like Anurag would not like to take any risk for his mega project that may sabotage his career elevation.

History says it; there have been enormous losses when two big Bollywood films clash at the box office. While in 2012, the Diwali release of Jab Tak Hai Jaan and Son of Sardaar divided the box office profit, the 2013 Eid release of Chennai Express & Once Upon A Time in Mumbai Dobara’s clash brought in massive monetary loss to Ekta Kapoor. And the cherry on the cake is the fight within for maximum number of screens with the distributors! Considering this, guess the makers of Bombay Velvet have decided to not challenge the Marketing King & Perfectionist Star Aamir Khan.

And with the recent disaster release of Ranbir’s ‘Besharam’, definitely points out that releasing Bombay Velvet along PK will fall flat on their face. We will just have to wait and see the excuse Bombay Velvet team makes to leave the box office race!

There is a love that can bring people from all different circles to one comfortable place: behind a steering wheel. Stars know how to keep up appearances.
