Fasten your seatbelts and proceed with caution, the new arthouse film AGRA, from 3rd i alum Kanu Behl (TITLI), which opened to rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival, is an audacious and riveting film that looks into Indian family dynamics, patriarchy, and sexual frustration within limited physical space in metropolitan homes in India.

Guru, a young man in his twenties, works in a call center in Agra and falls in love with Mala, a work colleague. However, he still lives with his parents. And when Guru announces that he wants to marry Mala and have her move into the house, nothing goes as planned.

Kanu Behl skillfully uses AGRA to explore sexual repression through vivid sexual imagery and to examine dysfunction and physical space. And how the lack of space, in a country of over a billion, affects the way people live their lives. The film is captivating and intense, but not for the faint of heart.
