    Adil Hussain starrer ‘Lorni – The Flaneur’ nominated at Moscow Film Fest

    Directed by Meghalaya filmmaker Wanphrang Diengdoh, the movie was selected for ‘Best Foreign Language Feature’ and ‘Best Film’ at the film fest.

    Guwahati: Renowned actor Adil Hussain starrer Khasi film ‘Lorni – The Flaneur’ has been nominated at the Moscow International Festival, 2021.

    The movie was selected for ‘Best Foreign Language Feature’ and ‘Best Film’ at the film fest.

    Lorni – The Flaneur is the debut feature film directed by Meghalaya filmmaker Wanphrang Diengdoh.

    In the movie, Diengdoh has presented the story of Shem played by Life of Pi fame Adil Hussain, who hails from Assam. In the movie, a struggling private investigator is finally given a chance to escape his everyday, humdrum existence when he comes across an unusual robbery.

    Lorni is about Shem who is a detective with no job at hand. The self-styled detective with a sharp sense of the streets escapes the lethargy of small-town Shillong when he is asked to investigate the disappearance of objects worthy of great cultural value.

    According to reports, the movie is influenced by Charles Baudelaire. It sees the protagonist wandering the streets of a labyrinth-like city, bubbling with racial tensions.

    Diengdoh’s film, which was earlier screened at the Habitat Film Festival in Delhi, explores the Khasi identity through its protagonist who is a ‘Dkhar’, or a person of mixed parentage. The characters in the film speak in English, Khasi, and ‘Bazaar Hindi’, a unique form of Hindi spoken in Meghalaya and particularly Shillong.
