Manoj Bajpayee receiving raved reviews for his stellar performance for Gali Guleiyan in various International Film Festivals.
Earlier this May, Manoj’s stellar performance had won him the Best Actor Award at the New York Indian Film Festival.*
The film has now traveled to more than 18 top International Film Festivals and won audience accolades and awards along the way.
These include recent screenings at the prestigious 42nd Cleveland International Film Festival, the Indian Film Festival of Los Angles, Atlanta Film Festival and the New York Indian Film Festival.
Talking about last year, it is not often that a film can boast of a simultaneous premiere at three prestigious International Film Festivals – Busan International Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival & Mumbai’s MAMI and, go on to win the Grand Jury award at the latter. Yet, Gali Guleiyan did just that in 2017!!
All this perhaps serves as the perfect launchpad for the film to release theatrically in India and worldwide soon.
*Gali Guleiyan,* is a Hindi psychological drama about a man trapped within the walls and alleys of Old Delhi and his own mind, who attempts to break free to find a human connection. The main protagonist is played by the extremely talented Manoj Bajpayee ably supported by an ensemble cast of actors par excellence – Ranvir Shorey, Neeraj Kabi and Shahana Goswami along with debutant child actor Om Singh. Shot entirely on locations, the film is directed by Los Angeles-based debutant filmmaker and winner of Director Guild of America Award, Dipesh Jain.

Not just the stellar cast, the film also boasts of some of the best technicians. Many Oscar, Emmy and Grammy winning/nominated artists have worked on the film that was completed at top Hollywood facilities like Fox studios, Light Iron and Skywalker Sound. The post-production took place in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.
*Earlier, talking about the film, Dipesh Jain had said:* _When Shuchi (my sister & producer) and I started this journey of making Gali Guleiyan, we felt that it was a bold and risky story especially for a debut film. But it’s a story very close to our heart and takes you into the depths of human mind and emotions. In many ways it is an ode to my growing up years in the alleys of Old Delhi- to my personal fears and a feeling of entrapment that I had experienced as a child. I have been extremely blessed to have an ensemble cast of brilliant actors each of whom has breathed life into the characters they play with such élan! To ensure the best look and feel for our audience, we have ensured that top of the line technicians worked on it. Currently in a successful Festival run, we are now looking forward to its theatrical release worldwide soon.”
*GALI GULEIYAN* will soon release in India and Worldwide.
