Director duo Shiboprosad Mukherjee & Nandita Roy announced their new film “Anthyesti.com”
Director duo Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy always make movies on topics that reflects the society around us. While doing so sometime they take inspirations from real life achievers also and present their story in fictional format. They had done that in movies like Muktodhara and Konttho and now again they are going to do the same in their upcoming movie Anthyesti.com. Recently they announced about this new film during a press event.
As the name suggest it is something about an website that works for anthyesti which means the rituals performed after death. Surprisingly in reality their is one organization who own this website portal and they do take responsibility of making arrangements of all the post death rituals. The founder of this organization is Shruti Reddy. On surface level it is an organization similar to birthday or wedding planners but the nature of the job is very different compared to those event organizations. According to the directors, in current social scenario many aged people are living alone without any kin around them. Sometimes after their death no one from the locality comes to perform the funeral rituals. In such cases Shruti’s organization takes the whole responsibility and they are doing very noble job by doing that. Her inspiring story should reach to a larger section of people that is why the director duo decide to make film on this topic.
Shruti is also happy with this gesture by the film makers, she is confident that they will represent her story in best possible way. As of now the film is in scripting stage and nothing has been decided about the casting. Hopefully the team of Windows Production House will come up with more details soon.
