This surreal horror film, infused with elements of selfless love, draws inspiration from true events unfolding in rural India. Co-written by Siddhartha and Amanda Mooney, the storyline revolves around two landless farmers, Bhagole and Prabhata, who, after facing job rejections in the city, return to their village. However, their homecoming is marred by a menacing tiger threatening their village.

Dependent on their son’s income from a brick factory, the desperate couple contemplates a tragic sacrifice to the tiger, hoping for government compensation. The film explores the intricate web of emotions and challenges faced by these characters against the backdrop of a rural landscape.

“In the Belly of a Tiger” began its cinematic journey in 2018 with support from Busan’s Asian Cinema Fund. Engaging with various project labs and co-production markets globally, the film boasts a multicultural crew. Japanese composer Umebayashi Shigeru and Academy Award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty contribute their expertise, while the color grading is handled by a mainland Chinese studio owned by action director Wuershan.

Director Siddhartha’s commitment to authenticity is evident in his thorough research, immersing himself in the village setting and connecting with families grappling with land loss due to mounting debts. The film predominantly features non-professional actors, adding an extra layer of realism to the narrative.

Siddhartha, known for his previous work on “Love and Shukla,” brings a deeply personal touch to “In the Belly of a Tiger,” using Indian mythology as a beacon of hope within a poignant love story.

For those intrigued by similar narratives, the film draws parallels with the 2022 release “Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga,” starring Pankaj Tripathi. Directed by Srijit Mukherji, this gripping tale revolves around a village leader’s quest to confront a dangerous tiger threatening the livelihood of his people.
