    UNI: The three-day Chandigarh Film Festival concluded yesterday at Fun Republic with French movie Les Mauvais Jouers.

    Organised by Chandigarh Tourism, CII, NFDC and the embassies of France and Hungary, in association with the Chandigarh Film Society, the festival received a good response on the last day, Fun Republic's Senior Vice President Ms Jolly said.

    The movies screened yesterday included Shyam Benegal's 1993 production, Suraj Ka Satva Ghoda featuring some of the most accomplished actors including Neena Gupta, Pallavi Joshi, AmrishPuri, Rajeshwari Sachdev, Ranjit Kapur, Raghuvir Yadav.

    Based on a novel by Dharamavir Bharati, the story narration is non-linear, using various techniques and flash backs.

    The Hungarian movie Little Vilma by Marta Meszaros is largely set in Kyrgyzstan, where the film maker spent her early childhood, and was orphaned. It is more of an autobiographical film, revealing the story of whole generation of survivors of the Soviet Gulag.

    Produced and directed by Yash Chopra, Veer Zara, the earthy Indo-Pak story of courage and integrity, ran almost to a full house. Though a cross-border epic, it is devoid of any political overtones.

    National Award winner, Dance Like a Man, which is a powerful human drama with right blend of humour and pathos was also screened today.

    The last on the show was Frederic Balekdjian's French movie Les Mauvais Jouers (2005) which a crackling melodrama set in Paris.
