    Rohit Karn Batra Biography

    Rohit Karn Batra was born in India. Originally, Rohit came from a non-film background. His parents are both teachers and he went through a traditional route. Rohit went on to study Computer Science at university, he got an Mba in New York and started his professional career in corporate America. But soon enough he turned to the film industry in 2010, his “true passion.”

    Rohit started doing music videos, then started to get into other aspects, namely post production and line production. It gave him the ground experience to learn about the different facets of film-making. Rohit has acted as producer of a number of short films at the start of his career, including Roundabout (2010), which was his debut as a director and story writer too. Other works include directing and producing one episode of 2012 TV documentary series Eco Fashion and the short film Goggles (2013).

    He then jumped into feature film after understanding the financial and technical end of things, which allowed him to raise money and make his debut film, Line of Descent.

    Line of Descent

    Originally known as The Field, Line of Descent is a 2019 crime film written and directed by Rohit Karn Batra, which became his first feature film, and starring Ronit Roy, Brendan Fraser, Abhay Deol, Prem Chopra, Neeraj Kabi, and Ali Haji. The plot revolves around three sons of a mafia patriarch who fight over the future of their crime family. The film was simultaneously released on 4 December 2019 in theaters and video on demand in the United States while in India it was released on ZEE5.

    Pre-production started on 18 April 2016 and filming began on 18 June 2016. Brendan Fraser was in Mumbai for two weeks in May to film his scenes, which feature dialogue in Hindi and English.

    The film was well received by the press, with Noel Murray from Los Angeles Times saying: “[Rohit Karn Batra] does a fine job of exploring the dynamics of a potentially lethal sibling rivalry; and he gets an entertaining wild-card performance from American Canadian actor Brendan Fraser. (...) There’s something to be said for drawing memorable characters, which Batra definitely does. This is less a movie about cops and crooks than a soapy melodrama about rich brothers at odds over the future of a family business that just happens to be illicit.”
