Cannes Film Festival: Indian Films That Won at Cannes

Team FC

A Night Of Knowing Nothing | Won the Oeil d'Or for the Best Documentary at Cannes 2021

Edited and photographed by Ranabir Das, there is something so beautiful and bold about the stylised, black and white film. It is so comfortable keeping its characters in shadows, so unperturbed by the lacking light.

Masaan | Richa Chadha, Vicky Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi won two prizes at Cannes 2015

The assured direction and writing are bolstered by wonderful performances. Even Richa's backbone seems to be acting — her erect posture defies her suffocating surroundings. When a cop asks her why she went to a hotel room with a boy, she replies, "Jigyasa" (Curiosity).

The Lunchbox (2013) | Won the Critics Week Viewers Choice Awards

The Lunchbox is one of the greatest films of the past decade and it wouldn't have become what it is without Irrfan; Irrfan, who not only shone bright but also elevated the performance of his co-actors. Such was his magic.
