As the trailer of Tumbbad begins, we see a family leaving Tumbbad and they say “Sarkar mar gaya” (Sarkar is dead). The two-and-a-half minute trailer delves into the story of the film. We are told that the old palace has a treasure buried and the boy from the family believes that they are the rightful owners of the same. The gates are unlocked and the mayhem unleashes. Many have been hunting this treasure but so far, no one has come close to it. It is hinted that the treasure is protected by a ghost. In a screechy voice we hear, ‘One shouldn’t claim everything that they inherit’.

The motivation here is greed and no amount of fear can defeat the hunger that these characters possess for gold. Many are swallowed in by this greed for the treasure and not all come back alive. Tumbbad premiered last month at the Venice Film Festival's Critics' Week. It has been described by the section's artistic director, Giona Nazzaro, as “a visionary fantasy film, rich in visual inventions, special effects and blood.”
Tumbbad is an Eros International and Aanand L Rai presentation and a Little Town Films production in association with Colour Yellow Productions. It is directed by Rahi Anil Barve. Tumbbad is set to release on 12th October 2018. Watch the trailer of Tumbbad:
