PRESS REVIEWS

Sunrise Variety QuoteVARIETY
“A gripping psychological drama set in the seediest quarters of Mumbai, the pic cleverly weaves fantasy and reality so that neither can be taken at face value. The result is an intense, very well-performed tale that will doubtless spark debate in India”

Sunrise Hollywood Reporter ReviewTHE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
“Sen-Gupta masterfully exploits sight and sound in a mature exploration of escalating mental anguish that should see a long, healthy festival life and could find outlets in urban art houses.”

Sunrise Quote TwitchFilmTWITCH (SCREEN ANARCHY)
“Taking place at night, frequently under heavy rain and driven forward by a pulsating minimalist electro score, the sophomore feature of Partho Sen-Gupta comes fully stocked in the style department yet never loses sight of its narrative core…”

HUMANITE (FR)
“Le réalisateur Partho Sen-Gupta aborde cette tragédie par le biais d’une fiction onirique et expressionniste à belle force plastique. ”

CRITIC (DE)
“Menschenhandel in Mumbai. Partho Sen-Gupta hat einen schauerhaft stimmungsvollen und gleichwohl einfühlsamen Film noir gedreht.”

TRANSFUGE (FR)
“… le film de Partho Sen-Gupta est vraiment du cinéma, pas une thérapie. Joshi, que de nombreuses scènes montrent seul, marchant sous la pluie, entouré de silhouettes plus ou moins distinctes, est une pure figure de film noir.”

FILM FORWARD
“There are eerie sequences where director Partho Sen-Gupta blurs the line between reality and dream—or, more accurately, nightmare. And that’s what makes Sunrise so compelling: it’s never precisely clear what is and isn’t real.”
