Subhadra Mahajan's 'Second Chance' heading to Karlovy Vary International Film Festival

Subhadra Mahajan's 'Second Chance' is the only Indian film to make a cut in the 58th Karlovy Vary’s official competition ~

Second Chance by debutante director Subhadra Mahajan will have its world premiere at the 58th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival under the Proxima Competition segment. Mahajan, known for co-writing 2015's "Angry Indian Goddesses" with director Pan Nalin, has also penned the film's story inspired by personal experiences.

According to a press release, "Second Chance" follows the story of a young woman who after experiencing the first major trauma of her young life, retreats to her family summer home in the Himalayas where time, nature and unlikely friendships help her heal. The film, inspired by Mahajan's personal experiences, follows a young woman's healing journey in the Himalayas. Shot in the Pir Panjal range of the filmmaker's native state of Himachal Pradesh, the black-and-white film is in English, Hindi and Kullavi languages.

Subhadra Mahajan has depicted human relationships in great detail in her film 'Second Chance'. The story of her film is woven around 'Mia'. Disappointed after a painful incident, she comes to stay with her family in the snow-covered Himalayas in search of peace. There she meets the caretaker of the house. What happens next has been shown very beautifully by Subhadra Mahajan. The film shows how the main character gives her life a second chance.

“'My intention as the writer-director is to have the audiences witness a tale set in a part of the world they have never seen before, but with an emotional crux that they can relate to, and leave renewed with the faith at their own personal 'Second Chances' in life,”' Mahajan said in a statement. Produced by Shyam Bora with co-producers Bhaskar Hazarika, Sidharth Meer and Naren Chandavarkar, Mahajan hopes that her film will be appreciated at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
