Geetu Mohandas’ ambitious dramatic feature film debut, Liar's Dice, takes on the serious theme of conditions for Indian migrant laborers. It’s also a love story between two unlikely characters. In the tribal community Chitkul at the foot of the Great Himalaya Range, Kamala (serenely beautiful Geetanjali Thapa) lives with her precocious three-year-old daughter Manya. Like many locals, Kamala’s husband works as a laborer on a construction site in the city. His letters and phone calls have ceased, leaving Kamala worried. Against the advice of the male elders of her village, she takes her daughter and pet goat to search for her husband. The way is rough and dangerous. Traveling on the treacherous road through the mountains, she meets an army deserter (Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Gangs of Wasseypur), who is a genius at the game of Liar’s Dice. Together they travel to Delhi though spectacular winter mountain landscapes, sometimes by foot, sometimes in a pickup truck or bus. In Delhi, they continue their search until they find their answer. Mohandas is an actor-turned-filmmaker who began her career at the age of four and has a remarkable 28 credits to her name.
Geetu Mohan Das is an India-based filmmaker. She along with her director-cinematographer husband Rajeev Ravi formed Unplugged in 2009, which produced her first short fiction film called Are You Listening? The film premiered at Rotterdam International Film Festival. Liar's Dice is her first feature film.
