First Indian film to release post-pandemic in US theaters nationwide

Set in 1930’s India, Draupadi Unleashed centers on sixteen-year-old Indira, who finds herself torn between true love, her duty to follow through with an arranged marriage and the powerful allure of a mysterious guru. Through her heartbreaking journey to self-discovery, long-held secrets are brought to light and Indira discovers the strength within herself to break free. In a story that mixes magical realism and gorgeous surroundings with the harsh realities of a patriarchal society, this beautifully-told tale of a young woman at a crossroads in her life offers a rare look at aristocratic Indian society in the early part of the 20th Century. The film was scheduled to release in mid-March, but because of COVID-19 and theater closures, the release date has been pushed back to September 24, 2020, making it the first Indian film to release in theaters nationally post-pandemic.
