Smriti says the team was in constant touch with Viacom18 Motion Pictures, who is distributing the movie in India, for getting “La La Land” to the Mumbai film festival, but when that couldn’t happen, they decided to screen it at the film club. “La La Land is one of the hottest titles in the festival circuit this year. “La La Land”, which also stars John Legend, Rosemarie Dewitt and J K Simmons, follows a musician and aspiring actress who meets and fall in love in Los Angeles.

La La Land film is directed by Damien Chazelle, whose 2014 film Whiplash bagged three Academy awards. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone starrer La La Land is all set to have its Indian premiere at the Jio MAMI Film Club on November 23. The much-awaited film will be screened at the film club much before it’s official release date, December 9. The film is a musical, it has romance, and both these genres have not been explored in a big way in the recent years,” Smriti said. Smriti Kiran, creative director of MAMI, said the team zeroed in on the romantic-musical-drama as it is one of the most talked about films of the year. The film is directed by Damien Chazelle, whose 2014 film Whiplash bagged three Academy awards. Watch the official trailer of La La Land here:
“It (La La Land) is touted to be one of the Oscar front-runners and therefore we thought it would be an ideal treat for people who are film club members,” she added.
