Tribeca picks up ‘Road, Movie’

Benegal film to be released on VOD, in theaters

LONDON — On the back of its selection for the Tribeca Film Festival, helmer Dev Benegal’s Hindi-language “Road, Movie” has been picked up for U.S. distribution by Tribeca Film.

“Road” will be available on VOD day-and-date with its screening at the fest, which runs April 21-May 2. Further theatrical dates are planned.

Produced by Susan Landau (“Marigold”) and Ross Katz (“Marie Antoinette”), the pic deals with a young man who escapes his family’s hair-oil business by going on a road trip across India in an old Chevy, which is also a touring movie theater.

The filmstars Abhay Deol.

Pic opens in India on Friday.
