Liar’s Dice rolls into Oscars, Sikkim celebrates

The movie which secured a national award for Sikkim’s Geetanjali Thapa, has now also worked its way to becoming India’s entry for the Oscars in the foreign language category. Liar’s Dice, in which Geetanjali co-stars with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is written and directed by Geethu Mohandas.
The development has triggered much excitement in Sikkim and congratulations and best wishes have started pouring in starting from Raj Bhawan itself with Governor Shriniwas Patil extending warm greetings and congratulations to Geetanjali over the film’s nomination.
A press communiqué issued by Raj Bhawan conveys, “The Governor also conveys his good wishes and prayed for her success in the Oscar. Ms. Geetanjali Thapa has also been assured all possible help from Hon’ble Governor in the days to come.”
Liar’s Dice is the story of a woman (Geethanjali Thapa) who sets out in search of her missing husband along with her daughter and a pet lamb. The director, Ms. Mohandas, introduces the movie as a “very simple story” with a “political undercurrent”.
Geetanjali is clearly at the centre of things in the movie, and in the words of Ms. Mohandas, she hasn’t seen “a finer actor than Geethanjali in India”.
