Monday Night Film Series: The Photograph

Ritesh Batra returns with another nuanced love story about the hopes, dreams, and identities of ordinary people. With gentle poignancy, Batra explores moments of both isolation and connection amidst the otherwise chaotic urban landscape of Mumbai. An unlikely couple who come from different walks of life meet in a busy public square. Miloni (Sanya Malhotra) is a shy young woman studying to become an accountant. Rafi (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) is an older, reclusive street photographer, who makes ends meet by taking portraits of tourists at city landmarks. One day Rafi takes Miloni’s portrait, and it leaves an indelible imprint on them both.
