When the film Kacchey Limbu was announced, I was quite intrigued by its title. And the moment I got to know Radhika Madan and Rajat Barmecha are starring in it, I got more excited. On top of that, the film will be premiering at the renowned Toronto International Film Festival 2022 on September 11, 2022. The director of the project Shubham Yogi spoke to us about his experience of making debut as a filmmaker with this venture.

Before that, check out the film’s teaser here:

Kacchey Limbu is a heartwarming sibling drama that tells the story of Aditi, a wilful young girl who is in the race of fulfilling dreams imposed on her by everyone and being at the receiving end each time. A story of courage, determination and discovering herself. It is an emotional rollercoaster in which she decides to take matters into her own hands to prove to her family, friends and especially her elder brother that being confused is not necessarily a bad thing. With time, the right decision will find its way to you.

On making a debut as a director, Shubham Yogi shares…

I am very excited to embark on my journey as a filmmaker with Kacchey Limbu, a coming-of-age sibling drama. The film is primarily a story of two young, middle-class siblings who have to navigate their family’s conditioning to find their own unique voice. Kacchey Limbu is everyone’s story, and I believe that a story worth telling will always find a way to be told.

On working with the producers, he says…

I was fortunate to find producers – my prime collaborators, Neha Anand and Pranjal Khandhdiya (Mango People Media) and Jio Studios who believed in the story from the get-go and batted for the film on the front foot. With their faith in me and my story, I feel fortunate that I was able to tell the story in the way that I wanted to.

On teaming up with an incredible cast, he shares…

Along with my own debut as director, Kacchey Limbu cast is led by Radhika Madan, Rajat Barmecha and Ayush Mehra. It is a story that will connect with all families, as it touches upon the crossroads of dreams and realities in life. We have aspired to capture sibling love in a way that would strike a chord with everybody. I couldn’t have asked for more than a World Premiere for Kacchey Limbu at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF2022).

With such an interesting cast and plot, it looks like the film is going to be a joyride, I can’t wait to watch it on the big screen.
