So many great films to choose from!
It’s the 16th year of the 2019 Indian Film Festival Los Angeles bringing the opportunity to see films with Indian cast and creators to walk in the footsteps of their imagination. The closing night film is ‘The Odds’. The festival is at the Regal Cinema DTLA with comedy, drama and documentaries.
ABOUT THE ODDS
On the day of a major exam that could help determine her future, eccentric Vivek decides to take a slightly strange stand against the system. When things don’t go as she planned, well-heeled and cute Ashwin gets caught up in her antics and the two play truant from school. As the young would-be couple wanders the streets of Mumbai and gets to know each other, the past, present and future of their relationship play out in hilarious and magical ways.
Deftly dodging the stereotypical approaches that focus on teenage women in terms of matrimony or victimhood, THE ODDS is the special kind of tale that revels in the joys of being young. Amidst the teenage awkwardness of attraction, the desire to express yourself in a way never seen before, and the fear you might not be as special as you think, writer/director and IFFLA alum Megha Ramaswamy tells the kind of story about growing up in India today unlike anything you have seen before. A fairy tale inspired by the real world, THE ODDS is for the young, the romantic, and the odd.
Now in its 17th year, the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA) is a nonprofit organization devoted to a greater appreciation of Indian cinema and culture by showcasing films and promoting the diverse perspectives of the Indian diaspora.
The four-day festival is the premiere platform for the latest in cutting-edge global Indian cinema and bridges the gap between the two largest entertainment industries in the world – Hollywood and India. The festival will showcase nearly 25 films from the Indian filmmaking community across the globe, host the highly anticipated Opening and Closing red carpet Galas, and the Closing Awards ceremony.
