Platoon One Films and Ellanar Films‘ Belgium-set Indian immigrant drama “Minimum,” directed by Indian origin, U.S.-born Belgian actor Rumana Molla, which commenced principal photography in June, has wrapped. Thespian Naseeruddin Shah (Amazon Prime Video’s “Bandish Bandits”) joined the cast, which also includes Saba Azad (SonyLIV’s “Rocket Boys”), Geetanjali Kulkarni (Venice winner “Court”) and Namit Das (BBC’s “A Suitable Boy”) with Molla herself playing one of the major roles.
The film follows a newly-wed immigrant whose mother-in-law keeps her captive. She finds out that everything she had been told about her husband was a lie and loses hope until a French tutor is hired to teach her the basics.
Molla, who previously starred alongside Shah in “Irada” (2017), said: “This film has been a labor of love and I can definitely say that all the turmoil was worth it. And shooting with Naseeruddin Shah was truly a dream come true. I never thought I would get to act with him again, let alone direct him. I feel unbelievably fortunate. His kindness and his generosity are unparalleled. He truly is the greatest.”
Produced by Shiladitya Bora and Radhika Lavu, the film was shot on location in Belgium as well as Serbia and India. An early 2023 release is being planned.
