Kia & Cosmos – produced by AVA Film Productions Pvt. Ltd.
Now available on Netflix India, the Bengali film threads together many disparate elements: A dreamy teenager, her forlorn mother and the mysterious death of a neighbourhood cat
Kia’s world is fiercely private. It consists of numbers, yellow taxis, the colour red, of detectives Feluda and Byomkesh. Dia, the teenager’s single mother, is often barred at the threshold. The father, who lives away from the daughter for the most part, fares better than his estranged wife. But Cosmos, a neighbourhood cat who remains out of sight, is more important in the scheme of things. Her death by poisoning moves Kia to the extent that she decides to investigate the matter in the style of her favourite fictional sleuths.
