The above two posters are from my brother’s new feature film. And before you presume it to be some big shot affair, let me assure you- he and his equally crazy friends are a bunch of average college going kids in Calcutta. But yes, amazingly talented they are. they call themselves “madly bangalis” and they are..in every true sense of the term.
they didn’t even have proper budget or editing mechanism in place to finish the project. But their enthusiasm is infectious. so much so, that a drab old person like me couldn’t resist but run to see them shoot their maiden venture on shoestring budget on a lively afternoon in june.
They don’t know how the movie will get a proper theatrical release….they plan on releasing it on cd’s this diwali may be, in case, their tight academic schedules permit everything to go according to the plan. Please encourage the young blood..spread the word around in the bengali speaking junta across home and abroad….these people don’t have the glitz and glam of showbiz associated with them as of now, but I can assure you….you will not be disappointed. Young, fresh and talented to the hilt, look out for the script by my brother. He is a prolific writer with unparalleled wit. And if you want to take a walk back memory lane..across the nostalgia street..when friendship meant “Lyadh, Halu, missed call..charminar and lengi” (I haven’t read the script..he didn’t let me :P…I just have an idea seeing the young bunch of my brother, tathagata and tridibesh) then do watch out for E R KI.
Watch this space for more. And please spread the word… nothing works like word of mouth for small but promising ventures like this one.
