Manoj Bajpayee Starrer “The Fable” to Premiere at Berlin Film Festival
The highly anticipated Manoj Bajpayee starrer, “The Fable,” is set to have its World Premiere at the 74th edition of the Berlin Film Festival (BFF) in the Encounters Competition. This news is particularly significant as it marks only the second Indian film in the last 30 years to premiere in one of the key competitive sections of the Berlinale. The film has been given a prominent spotlight by the festival, with an evening premiere on the opening day, typically reserved for highly anticipated films.
Film Overview and Cast
“The Fable” is filmmaker Raam Reddy’s second feature following his multi-award-winning film “Thithi,” a US-Indian co-production. The ensemble cast includes Padma Shri and multi National Award-winning actor Manoj Bajpayee, Deepak Dobriyal, Priyanka Bose, and Tillotama Shome, along with debutant Hiral Sidhu and child actor Awan Pookot.
Manoj Bajpayee, known for his incredible talent, expressed his happiness on the news, saying, “Joining the cast of The Fable has been a remarkable experience. Working with a creative mind like Raam Reddy and participating in an A-festival backed by an international production house for the first time has been incredibly inspiring. Our film’s presence at Berlinale signifies the global reach and artistic caliber of Indian storytelling.”
Raam Reddy, the film’s writer and director, added, “The Fable is not just a film but an unadulterated piece of my soul. I feel fortunate for many things: being able to collaborate with Manoj ji’s brilliance and such a wonderful cast, premiering in a competitive section of Berlinale, having global backing for the film. But most importantly, for the opportunity to tell this story exactly as I envisioned.”
Production and Backing
“The Fable” is backed by veteran producer Sunmim Park, known for producing the global Hollywood hit “The Others” starring Nicole Kidman, and many other noteworthy international breakouts. Raam Reddy’s first feature film, “Thithi,” was both a critical and commercial success, winning over 20 International Awards, running for close to 100 days in theatres, and securing worldwide rights with Netflix.
The last Indian film in the Encounters Competition was “The Shepherdess and The Seven Songs” in 2020. There has been no Indian film in the Main Competition since “Shelter of the Wings” directed by Buddhadeb Dasgupta in 1994.
