Tumbbad is written by Mitesh Shah, Adesh Prasad, Anil Barve and Ship of Theseus director Anand Gandhi. Set in colonial India of the '20s, the film is a mix of horror, fantasy and folklore. It was the first Indian film to open the prestigious Venice Film Festival's Critics' Week on 9 August.
"Although Tumbbad is not a big film in conventional terms, in the sense that it features no superstars and is not flashy, it has certainly been mounted on a lavish scale," wrote Anna Vetticad for Firstpost.
