Award-winning movie “Embrace” now on Amazon

Embrace, a short film written and directed by Dhalla, and starring Rebecca Hazlewood (Outsourced) and Ajay Mehta (The Mindy Project, Royal Pains) is now available on Amazon, Google Play

Based on a true story of the 2008 Mumbai Terror attacks, Embrace was an official selection at festivals including NYIFF, Louisville International Film Festival, and IFFCA — where it won the Audience Choice – Best Director Award.  It was the first ever dramatization of the tragedy, and was filmed in under 2 days.

The Huffington Post praises Embrace as a movie that “captures the raw intensity of two ordinary people — a couple — caught in hotel crossfire that lasted three days…How they held each other in the midst of Hell was a fascinating glimpse of humanity in crisis. The film delivers a message of the defeat of evil and triumph over adversity.”

Hazlewood, who plays Meera, says, “She’s a wife, she’s a daughter, but ultimately she’s a Mother. She’s a lioness. She goes from being a victim and potentially falling apart to making a difficult choice so that her child isn’t orphaned by the brutal terror attack. She makes the ultimate sacrifice and I have incredible respect for her.”
