Regional and independent films do not always get the same attention that most commercial films do. While the target audience or niche for both the kinds of cinema is usually different, it all comes to down to appreciating art. Before its theatrical release, Anurag Kashyap shared the trailer of Adieu Godard giving it a shoutout on social media, asking people to watch the film.
