Manish Mundra, a producer-turned-director, will soon release his debut directorial film, Siya, which is described as a crime drama. Mundra is well-known for his critically acclaimed and ground-breaking films such as Ankhon Dekhi, Massan, Kadvi Hawa, and Newton.
Masaan won two Cannes Film Festival awards, Ankhon Dekhi opened the 8th Annual Mosaic International South Asian Film Festival (MISAFF), and Newton was India’s first official Oscar entry. With his directorial debut Siya, fans have high hopes that the film will deliver something that Bollywood has been lacking in recent years.
About The Siya Movie
The Siya Film plot revolves around Siya, a small-town girl who makes the decision to fight for her rights against all odds and starts a movement against the vicious system. Pooja Pandey, who plays Siya in the film, stated that as a woman, this narrative felt special to her and that it is a story that deserves to be told.
While the show’s filmmaker Mundra stated that as the cases of crime against women escalate day by day and year by year, Siya is an attempt to characterize the abject inhumanity that powerless, innocent women are forced to listen to in a world that treats sex as taboo and yet women as sex objects.
