Kaphal-Wild Berries

a children's film


Kaphal is my new film for the Childrens Film Society, India.

‘Kaphal’ means ‘wild berries’. It is a story based in a hilly village of Garhwal, where 2 young boys, Makar and Kamru find that a father coming back home after 5 years is less a pleasure, and more a pain. Their attempts to get rid of him are spurred on by their mischievous friends, Bupi and Pusu. But when they meet a young shepherdess, Ghungra, who claims to be the granddaughter of the local witch, Pagli Dadi, their adventures take a new turn.

You can read all about the making of ‘Kaphal’ on this blog.

You can read some older posts on ‘Kaphal’ on my blog ‘Banno, Dhanno, Teja in Bumm-Bumm-Bhole-Land‘, under the category ‘Kaphal’.

    We watched this film at the National Film Festival screening in New Delhi earlier this month and really enjoyed it. Would like to have our 7-year old nephew watch it too. Is it available on DVD? Please advise price and other details if it is.

      Manu, no, the film is not yet available on DVD. Will be a while before it is released as it is still doing the festival rounds. I am glad you enjoyed it. Please follow the film on FB, so you may get details of any further screenings in Delhi.
