For the world premiere of her film, Kacchey Limbu, Radhika Madan recently attended the 47th Toronto International Film Festival. Now she returns home with a treasure of memories. The actor acknowledges that being on a global stage has reaffirmed the idea that “honest cinema” is not limited by language limitations.

She says, “The conclusion of this experience at TIFF is that if you make your film with the utmost honesty, if you don’t get stuck in this thing of making a good film or a bad film, you don’t even have to breaking language barriers… Because honesty doesn’t need language. It just transcends. And that’s something that was reinforced in the premiere.

The 27-year-old adds that there were hardly any Indians in the crowd. “But the way they (the audience) reacted to the film, made us feel that honesty trumps everything. You don’t need a language or anything (to tell a story). fact, that was the biggest learning for me too, and that will be the approach for every film to come,” she says.

Madan was anxious about her exit, despite the fact that she had previously participated in the prestigious TIFF. She had previously attended the festival in 2018 with the cast of Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.

“Until the very day of the premiere, I couldn’t believe the film had arrived at TIFF. All the amazing movies with beautiful actors that the world admires were there, I just couldn’t fit in there. I find it hard to accept. However, we went forward with great pride,” says the Angrezi Medium (2020) actor.

Here she argues that a film’s fate can also be changed by the world stage. “When a film premieres on a platform like TIFF, it’s also taken seriously with us. It’s not just another film. And that’s very important to us because we have to reach as many people as possible,” explains the actor.

Madan considers Kacchey Limbu, a coming-of-age tale of siblings, to be a very meaningful tale. “Even though it’s told in a very casual way, it touches on a very important topic about dreams, about having a voice, especially women, because over 90% of women don’t have the luxury of dream because their life is already decided by the people around them,” she concludes.
