Vakeel Babu By Civic Studios Makes India Premier At BISFF 2022
After being internationally recognised at the New York Indian Film Festival, the critically acclaimed legal drama, Vakeel Babu is all set to make its premiere in India at the Bengaluru International Short Film Festival - 2022 which is taking place from 4th-14th August, 2022 in Bangalore. The film is shortlisted as the finalist in the Indian Competition Section at BISFF 2022. Recognized as one of the most coveted film festivals, Bengaluru International Short Film Festival is India's largest short film festival and the only Oscar Qualifying Festival in India. 
Headlined by Sumit Purohit, BAFTA Breakthrough Honoree 2020-21 and the award-winning writer of Scam 1992 and Inside Edge fame,  Vakeel Babu stars Abhishek Banerjee (Stree, Paatal Lok, Mirzapur and more), Bhamini Oza Gandhi (esteemed Gujarati and Hindi TV and  theatre actor) and Lovleen Mishra (Raees, Little Things, Amu and more) in pivotal roles. The film traces the journey of Shiraz Hassan (played by Banerjee) who is distracted with chasing success through his digital video channel, and then gets approached online by an anonymous victim with a powerful abuser - will he take the case?
Emerging from in-depth, on-ground research on the legal challenges for victims of gender-based violence (GBV), the film aims to drive conversation on the essential role lawyers play in the lives of clients seeking justice against gender-based violence, specifically domestic violence.  
Talking about the news, Anushka Shah, Producer of Vakeel Babu and Founder, Civic Studios said, “We are proud that Vakeel Babu is set to premier at one of  India’s best film festivals. The film has been very well received by audiences across the spectrum. Vakeel Babu is a very special project for all of us and an important step in creating conversations towards judicial reform.”
As a part of the BISF-2022,, Vakeel Babu will be available on the BISFF website, App and OTT channel from the 4th-14th, August, 2022.
