Even though foreign locations lure us during the holidays, it’s the earthy smell of your hometown that drags you towards it. Amongst the many holiday destinations in the state, Konkan continues to remain an absolute favourite owing to its scenic landscapes and picturesque beaches. We are aware that many of you might have missed going to Konkan this year considering the lockdown restrictions. But don’t you worry! Here’s a list of 5 films on ZEE5 that’ll help you relive the authentic Konkan experience visually and that too, from the comfort of your homes.
Let’s begin the list with the film Killa directed by Avinash Arun. It’s a coming-of-age tale based on the life of a small kid named Chinmay who moves into a small town in Konkan along with his mother. The child is taken aback by the changes happening in his life and tries to find answers during his stay in the coastal village. The film is beautifully shot through Chinmay’s perspective and his idea of Konkan. The serene locations shown in the film like the ruined fort of Vijaydurga and the pristine beach of Guhagar are tempting, to say the least. Killa features Amruta Subhash, Archit Deodhar, and Parth Bhalerao who make an impact with their performances in the film.
