About the Film

GAFLA (SCAM) Director: Sameer Hanchate. / India / 125 mins / 2006 / DVD / Hindi with English subtitles Gripping and incisive, Sameer Hanchate's Gafla is inspired by the much publicised boom and bust scams on the Mumbai stock market. It examines the ethics and morality of this Machiavellian world defined by its winners and losers. Subodh is a bright young player with a dream of making it big. Early wins fuel his ambition and he is faced with a choice of following a secondary career dominated by big players or becoming one himself. Through a series of fast moves and supported by a crack team and ordinary investors he becomes the most dazzling player of all. However, old money, with its political and institutional backing, is on his heels determined to punish him for the audacity of his dreams. Hanchate draws compelling performances from a largely unknown cast in this daring debut feature. Cary Rajinder Sawhney
