Kolkata| July 20|
Whoever says Bengali films are not going places has got it all wrong. After having built audiences pan India and even internationally their funding is being considered by out of state backers.
There has to be first and Kuheli,a film by Debarati Gupta, maker of Hoi Choi,Kalkijug, is the one. It has garnered collaboration from a South Indian Production house, RDG Production Pvt. RDG has produced hit Telegu films like ‘Brahma Lokam to Yama Lokam via BhooLokam’ and ‘Cinema Choopistha Mama’. They have tied up with AVMA Media LLP for Debarati Gupta’s upcoming scary thriller.
Let’s hear Debarati, the director talk about her film: “While I have worked on thrillers before, for the first time I am bringing in a scary undertone to the thriller genre. The film is going to be unique in its presentation and the Bengali audience is going to be in for a treat. As our target audience is primarily the youth, we have kept the casting very fresh. We have been doing intense workshops with the lead artists. Indrasish and Pujarini, who play a young people who have recently moved to Kolkata, have a terrific chemistry that is waiting to explode on screen. While Kaushikda and Anindya Pulak play investigative officers of the Kolkata Police Dept., their characters have been etched in a manner so that they stand out from all the other police characters that have been seen on screen in recent times. Chandreyee plays an interesting character of a tarot card reader who is pivotal to the ongoing story. The look and feel to the film is being treated realistically so that the film remains true to its genre.”
On this exciting possibility, Rupesh Gohil of RDG says- “We are looking forward to this association with AVMA Media to make high quality content driven cinema in Bengali language. We are in sync with their vision on the kind of films that need to be made. Our first film KUHELI is on the floors and will release by the end of the year.”
