Rohena Gera's romantic drama, Sir, which received critical acclaim at the film festivals across the world, will soon make its way to Indian cinemas on 13 November.

Trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared this update

The Mumbai-set film probes the relationship between the scion of a real-estate family Ashwin (Gomber) and a live-in domestic help Ratna (Shome), who cooks and cleans for him.

Sir was first premiered in India last year at the Jagran Film Festival. It has had theatrical releases in more than 20 countries, including France, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Netherlands and Belgium. Sir has also had a successful screening at the prestigious Cannes Film festival, a Gala premiere at Zurich Film Festival and screenings in Melbourne, California and Israel, as well as other festivals in Europe.

At the 19th Annual New York Indian Film FestivalSir had won the award for the Best Film while Shome scoring the Best Actress award. The film has also won audience awards at the Festival du Film de Cabourg/ France and Festival World Cinema Amsterdam/Netherlands.   Sir also won 2019 Birmingham Indian Film Festival's inaugural BIFF Audience Award.

The entire film was shot in just 31 days on location in an apartment in Mumbai's Lower Parel high rise. Sir was earlier scheduled to be out on 20 March, but due to the coronavirus lockdown in the country, its release was stalled. 

Sir is among the many films which will see a theatrical release after the nationwide reopening of Indian cinemas. To minimise the danger, Indian cinemas have separated seats, staggered show times and are encouraging digital payments. Masks and temperature checks are mandatory.
