Director Bio

Mumbai-based Amit V Masurkar has written for sketch comedy shows and Bollywood films. His directorial debut, the uber low-budget comedy, Sulemani Keeda (2014, India-USA) was an indie sleeper hit. Newton is his second film.

Body

This wonderfully funny and astute film finds humour in one well-meaning official’s attempt to uphold the election process in a remote village in India. Newton (Rajkummar Rao) is sent to the jungle of Chhattisgarh, and, with army protection, plans to collect a mere 76 votes from oppressed indigenous locals, though the leader of his military escort is less than enthusiastic about the mission. As his work becomes more and more farcical, Newton continues to try to follow regulations at all times in an attempt to fulfil his job.
