MELBOURNE, 18 August 2023: Lord Curzon Ki Haveli (LCKH) is actor Anshuman Jha’s debut directorial film, a tribute to the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock. Hitchcock’s style described as tension building through suspense to the point where the audience enjoys seeing the character in a tough situation. Something like this happens in LCKH as the plot moves on in a mansion in picturesque but isolated English countryside. The characters are Indian (South Asian) who converse in English and occasional Hindi. The movie shot with a single lens, had its world premiere at the IFFM-2023 as part of the ‘Centrepiece Spotlight Film’ section. A day before the movie’s premiere, Director Anshuman Jha talked to South Asia Times (SAT) at a function at the MCG.
Arjun Mathur who acts as Rohit describes the movie as a little entertainment, a little disturbing and a psychological thriller slash a black comedy. No, doubt this is a black comedy in the Indian format in England. Revealing the full plot here will be doing injustice to the viewers. Some of the scenes could face the censor’s scissor in India.
