Indian American filmmaker Rohit Gupta’s art-house American comedy, “Midnight Delight,” won the ‘Best Drama-Comedy’ award at the 21st International Indie Gathering Film Festival 2016, held Aug. 8 to14 in Hudson, Ohio. A still from “Midnight Delight.”

Indian American filmmaker Rohit Gupta’s unique comedy film, “Midnight Delight,” starring actors Shaheed Woods (“Life! Camera Action...”), Alexandra Hellquist (“Sole Proprietor,” “The Fever and Fret”), John Crann (“The Perfect Murder, Life! Camera Action...”), Michele Suttile (“See You Next Tuesday”) and debutante Michael Laguerre, has been dominating film festivals across the U.S.

The 85-minute film produced by Gupta and Saumin Mehta under the production company, Dot and Feather Entertainment, has now been awarded the ‘Best Drama-Comedy’ feature at the 21st International Indie Gathering Film Festival 2016, held Aug. 8 to14 in Hudson, Ohio.

The film, set in a smoking lounge, features nine vignettes of comedy, wit and reality that follows strangers in high spirits, crossing paths during nights of exploration. These curious visitors reflect on daily existence, societal curiosities and demystify the status quo along the way conversing about various topics. The topics of discussion vary from “why do we talk,” “what do models eat,” “if water makes us fat” to “if dolphins could be the reason for the inception of the entire universe or its destruction.” Talks about moisturizers, math, infinity, working out at the gym, dating games and health supplements, also find a place in those discussions.  

The film was released July 21 via video on demand on various platforms, including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Sony, Hoopla, Vimeo and Xbox, among others.
