The teaser of Kunal Kapoor’s new film – Noblemen is out, and it tackles the extremely pertinent and important issue of bullying in high schools. The film, produced by Yoodlee Films – the film production stable from Saregama India – is directed by Vandana Kataria, and has an ensemble of fresh faces, along with Kunal Kapoor.
The film is narrated through the tale of the main protagonist, a young 15-year-old boy, Shay, who struggle to come to terms with his adolescent years, and is terrorized by a gang of bullies. The film is set in an all boys’ boarding school, where Shay’s interest in dramatics is encouraged by Murali, (Kunal Kapoor). However what starts off as his desire to be a part in the enactment of the Shakespearean play, The Merchant of Venice, turns into a battle of student hierarchy and egos, unleashing a chain of events that lead to loss of life and innocence.
This will be the third film by Saregama’s film production arm, Yoodlee films. Yoodlee Films has previously released the critically applauded Ajji, directed by Devashish Makhija last year, and the sensitive and mature romantic drama Kuchh Bheege Alfaaz, directed by Onir, earlier this year.
