Newcomer Anand Gandhi can count Ranbir Kapoor among his fans as the director’s debut film, ‘Ship of Theseus‘, impressed many of Bollywood’s brightest stars at a special screening on July 16th.  Aamir Khan and Kiran Rao helped organize the screening and Katrina Kaif, Rani Mukerji, Priyanka Chopra, Ayushmann Khurrana, and Rajkumar Hirani were among those who attended.

When asked about his impressions concerning the film Ranbir didn’t mince his praise, saying “It was a very wonderful film, very powerful. I don’t think any other film has moved me so much as ‘Ship Of Theseus‘ .”

3 Idiots‘ director Rajkumar Hirani was even more effusive in his praise for the film saying  “This is a film that kind of shakes you from the soul. The film has been made so realistically that I just don’t have words … people have to watch the film to see how it can shake you up. Now it feels that the kind of cinema that we have been making so far is so inconsequential and small.”

According to director Ghandi the film explores “questions of identity, justice, beauty, meaning and death through the stories of an experimental photographer, an ailing monk and an enterprising stockbroker.” The film’s name comes from an age old paradox first posed by Plutarch that asks whether an object that has all it’s parts replaced remains fundamentally the same object.

The film is scheduled for release in India July 19th, here’s a trailer:
