Filmmaker Goutam Ghose returns to Hindi cinema with Raahgir, which has been doing quite well on the festival circuit. The film will now travel to Amsterdam, Netherlands to take part in the upcoming CinemAsia International Film Festival. The festival will begin on 4 March and conclude on 8 March.  

Featuring Adil Hussain, Tillotama Shome, and Neeraj Kabi, Raahgir tells the story of people migrating to the city in their endeavor to eke out a living. Even as they put their lives on the line, they do not lose their humanity, which helps them navigate a cruel world. 

The film premiered at the Busan International Film Festival in October 2019 and received favourable reviews. It also travelled to other festivals like the 21st Mumbai Film Festival, the Kolkata International Film Festival, the International Film Festival of Kerala last year, and the Rajasthan International Film Festival last month.  

The film marks Ghose's return to Hindi cinema after a gap of 12 years. The director last wrote and directed Yatra (2007).  

Produced by Amit Agarwal's Adarsh Telemedia, the film is yet to have a theatrical release in India.
