Begumpura & Brooklyn

Rashmi LambaBlog

A surprise invitation to the ‘Canadian Screen Awards’ held last night found me hobnobbing with the best in the Canadian Film and Television Industry!!!
Paritosh, the force behind my film on ‘Begumpura’ invited me to join him at the Awards. A wonderful evening!
I was happy to see the recognition awarded to the two films ‘Brooklyn’ and ‘Room’…both great films, especially ‘Brooklyn’ that resonates with the sentiments and emotions expressed in ‘Begumpura’…looking for a better life but the consequences of homesickness, insecurity, finding your feet among new, unknown people…and the kindness shown by other immigrants…but in the process emerging as a strong, confidant woman who can deal with her life on her own terms!!
