‘Veeram’ to open BRICS Film Festival

Published on

Actor Kunal Kapoor-starrer “Veeram” will be the opening night film at the first BRICS Film Festival to be held here.

The festival, which is part of the special events planned in the runup to the 8th BRICS Summit being held in India, will take place at Siri Fort Auditorium Complex from September 2 to 6.

A trilingual period drama, “Veeram” is an adaptation of legendary poet Shakespeare’s classic “Macbeth”.

“I’m very excited that we are premiering at the first BRICS Film Festival. We’ve put a lot of effort into making this film and I’m really looking forward to seeing how the audience reacts to it,” Kunal said in a statement.

Set in 13th century Kerala, “Veeram” resuscitates the real life character made famous through folklore literature and songs.

Sharing broad similarities with the rise and fall of Macbeth, the film spans the journey of Chandu (played by Kunal), a Kalaripayattu warrior who meets a tragic end as an outcome of betrayal.

Produced by Chandrakala Arts, “Veeram” will be releasing in India later this year. It has been shot in three different languages — Hindi, English and Malayalam — and there are plans to further dub it in Tamil and Telugu.
