India, the early 20th century: on the outskirts of a decrepit village called Tumbbad lives Vinayak, the stubborn, conniving bastard son of the village lord, obsessed with a mythical ancestral treasure. He suspects the secret lies with his great-grandmother, a witch cursed to sleep for centuries. Confronting her finally puts him face to face with the guardian of the treasure, an evil fallen god. What starts with a few gold coins, quickly spirals into a reckless, perpetual yearning, spanning decades – and if Vinayak has his way – will become an obsession transferred into the next generation.


Rahi Anil Barve

Rahi Anil Barve was born in 1979 and scored success with his first short film Manjha which won the top prize at the Mumbai International Film Festival in 2007. The 41-minute black and white film about street kids in Mumbai was later chosen by director Danny Boyle as a special feature on the BluRay release of his hit film Slumdog Millionaire. Tumbbad is his first feature.
