Masaan is a 2015 Indian Hindi drama film directed by Neeraj Ghaywan. The directorial debut film is an Indo-French co-production produced by Manish Mundra, Macassar Productions, Anurag Kashyap’s Phantom Films, Sikhya Entertainment, Arte France Cinema and Pathé Productions.
It was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
Winner of the FIPRESCI prize and Promising Future Award in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes 2015, MASAAN revolves around four lives intersecting along the Ganges: a low caste boy hopelessly in love, a young woman ridden with guilt of a sexual encounter ending in a tragedy, a hapless father with a fading morality, and a spirited child yearning for a family- as they try to escape the moral constructs of small-town India.
Set against the divine landscape of Banaras, MASAAN is a celebration of Life, Death and Everything in Between.
