Movie Recommendations #1

Aani Maani showcases a heartbreakingly essential tale of a lower-middle-class Muslim family living in small-town UP. The film opens with the everyday life of the family which seems to be coming back on track after a shady past. But soon, the beef ban wreaks havoc yet again in the life of Bhutto, a kebab shop owner and his family.
Director Fahim Irshad portrays this story with authenticity yet never shies away from knitting simple yet effective metaphors throughout the narrative. This 95-minute film is now streaming on mubi.com.
