‘Stately and gruesome’ (The Hollywood Reporter)
A macabre fairytale set in the dreamlike hills of northern India where a rarefied elite plots and schemes, The Hungry explores power, corruption and the lengths one woman is willing to go to avenge the murder of her beloved son.
The film features stunning against-type performances from Bollywood legends Naseeruddin Shah and Tisca Chopra, with support from an exciting cast of up-and-coming talent.

The film offers an exquisite modern take on Shakespeare's first tragedy, 'Titus Andronicus', prodding at the raw nerves linking family and political life while ultimately bearing out the aphorism that 'an eye for an eye will make the whole world go blind'.
