At least three Indian movies, two produced by Cannes regular Anurag Kashyap, are making waves at the film festival. Ritesh Batra's debut film Lunchbox has bagged the Critics Week Viewers Choice Award at the 66th Cannes Film Festival.

Dabba ( The Lunchbox) — Director: Ritesh Batra’s debut film starring Irrfan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Nimrat Kaur that has got the best buzz so far. Part of the Cannes International Critics Week, the film centres on how a wrongly delivered lunchbox ignites a secret romance between an unhappy housewife and a soon- to- retire government official.

Ugly — Director: Anurag Kashyap DIRECTOR’S FORTNIGHT After garnering acclaim for his two- part revenge saga Gangs of Wasseypur, Kashyap returns with Ugly , which was screened as part of the Directors’ Fortnight sidebar. Produced by Phantom, Ugly looks at how the kidnapping of a 10- year- old young girl brings out the worst in all parties involved — the divorced parents and the stepfather, who also happens to head the police detection squad.

Monsoon Shootout — Director: Amit Kumar UP FOR CAMERA D’OR Screening out of competition but up for Camera d’Or, awarded for the best first feature, is also Kumar’s Monsoon Shootout , which like Dabba is also co- produced by Anurag Kashyap Films Private Limited. Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Vijay Verma and Tannishtha Chatterjee star in this action drama set in Mumbai which follows a rookie cop who is confronted with a do- ordie situation.
