dir. Suju Vijayan, USA, 2013, Dramedy, 90 min.

Philadelphia Premiere!  Director Suju Vijayan and Producer Mike Blum expected in attendance for post film Q&A.  FREE RECEPTION for all ticketholders.

THE PLAYBACK SINGER tells the story of an aimless, would-be, jungle-gym architect who finds his existence disrupted – and his marriage upended – when his prickly, Indian, B-movie playback singer father-in-law comes to visit and overstays his welcome. An original feature script written by director Suju Vijayan, THE PLAYBACK SINGER is a family drama spiked with comedy and music, which gets to the heart of relationships and of the challenges of finding our place in this world.

This funny and heartwarming film stars Navi Rawat (“Numb3rs”), Ross Patridge (“The Lost World: Jurassic Park”), and Indian actor, singer/songwriter, Piyush Mishra.
