Hardik Mehta’s Kaamyaab, Sanjoy Nag’s Yours Truly and Devashish Makhija’s Bhonsle will have their world premiere at the 23rd Busan International Film Festival in South Korea.

Entertainment network, Eros Now shared the news on Twitter earlier today. “We are happy to announce that Kaamyaab will be making its World Premiere at the 23rd Busan International Film Festival, in the Window on Asian Cinema section.”

Kaamyaab, featuring Sanjay Mishra, Deepak Dobriyal, follows a seasoned character-actor who decides to come out of retirement to hunt for a milestone. Speaking about the film, writer Hardik Mehta said, “It’s about how at the fag end of your life, you realise that all your life you did something, but if you did that one little thing, your life would be complete.”

Indian film critic, Taran Adarsh also took to Twitter to share the news with a caption “From the National Award winning director of #MemoriesInMarch – Sanjoy Nag… #YoursTruly to have its World Premiere at the upcoming Busan International Film Festival… Stars Soni Razdan, Pankaj Tripathi, Aahana Kumra and Mahesh Bhatt.”

Sanjoy Nag’s Yours Truly, starring Soni Razdan and Pankaj Tripathi, is based on a short story by Annie Zaidi about a woman who lives alone and is about to retire from her job. The movie deals with loneliness and love. “It is not a run-of-the-mill story.” The film also stars Soni Razdan’s husband and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt.

In a politically tumultuous Mumbai, he finds himself “forging an unlikely companionship with a 23-year-old North-Indian girl and her little brother.”
