Conversations and reviews about the recently released Tumbbad are peppered with superlatives like “must watch” and “wildly original film”. And, they aren’t wrong. In equal parts, Tumbbad is a horror-fantasy, a treasure hunt, an emotional father-son drama and a cautionary tale about the consequences of endless greed.

Set in the coastal Maharashtrian village of Tumbbad in the dying days of the British Raj, the film tells the story of Vinayak (played by Sohum Shah) who is at the centre of an all-consuming cycle of greed. The 35-year-old actor, who was seen romancing Kangana Ranaut in last year’s Simran, is also the film’s producer. We caught up with Sohum to chat about the six years it took to make this film, his love for Shah Rukh Khan and how his business is sustaining his passion.
