End this year on a sweet note with Mainak Bhaumik’s “Cheeni”
This Christmas, Shree Venkatesh Films are releasing their new film Cheeni, written and directed by Mainak Bhaumik. It is a family drama revolving around the love hate relationship between a 50 year old mother and her 25 year old daughter played by Aparajita Adhya and Madhumita respectively. The film also features Saurav Das as Madhumita’s boyfriend who is playing a key character in the story. No one can deny that Mainak Bhaumik is quite capable of making family dramas. There is an authenticity and honesty in his story telling, as a result his characters and emotions connects very well with the audiences. He has proved that several times in his earlier films and it seems he is going to recreate the same magic once again with Cheeni .
Through a bitter sweet story of a mother and daughter, the film focuses on the aspirations of a woman as an individual beyond her responsibilities of a mother only. Unfortunately most of the time kids neglect that aspect. Its an important matter that need to be told and its good to see Mainak Bhaumik is talking about it through an entertaining format. Other than that the films also highlights the issue of domestic violence.
Although due to ongoing pandemic situation audience are not too excited to visit cinema halls but considering the moderate budget of this film, it looks like a wise decision by the production house to release the film during this festive season. Christmas and New Year is a family holiday season and Cheeni can be a good option to spend some quality time with family members in theaters, of course maintaining the safety measures. Hopefully Cheeni will end this year on a sweet note for both audience as well as cinema hall owners.
