Vikram and Mithila have came together for a Indo-Bangladesh joint venture short film
For many of us this lockdown has came like an unplanned break from our busy lives. It has given us an opportunity to slow down for a while and revisit some incidents and relationships from our past which we were continuously overlooking giving more priority to the other commitments. Recently released short film Dure Thaka Kacher Manush, featuring Vikram Chatterjee and Rafiath Rashid Mithila, talks about two such persons who are going through similar experience. It is the story of two persons Deepto, a researcher and virologist, played by Vikram and Bonna, a singer, tv journalist and activist, played by Mithila. They rediscover their long lost companionship while staying alone in home quarantine.
The short film is an Indo-Bangladesh joint venture and the earnings from it will be used for the help of the technicians of the Bengali film industries from both Kolkata and Dhaka. It has been written by Abhra Chakraborty and directed by Shahrear Polock. The story idea is very interesting and it has been developed very well through the smart writing. The concept of writing mails to each other in the format of letters has been used smarty to tell a lot about the past equation of the two protagonist in a very short span of time. Both Vikram and Mithila have done good job being in sync with their characters. The background score and the use of the Tagore songs goes well with the mood of the story.
Dure Thaka Kacher Manush shows when two person like each other’s company then geographical distance does not matter and it is absolutely true. So in this lockdown alongside making social distancing with others utilise this opportunity to bridge the gap in your relationships with your near ones.
