Shomshuklla all praise for her film’s team

Filmmaker Shomshuklla Das has high expectations from Chhuttii Aar Picnic, which is being released in Kolkata today .According to Shomshuklla, the film, which is an adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s Sesher Kobita, has a modern storyline. It has already bagged awards at the Madrid and Columbia Gorge international film festivals, and has won eight nominations in various categories at the upcoming London International Film Festival.

“I felt the need to present Tagore to the new generation in a way they could identify with.Hence, I’ve kept the story and characters in sync with the times,“ she says.

The love story revolves around three characters Sikha (Sohini Mukherjee Roy), Labanya (Shahana Chatterjee) and Amit (Uditvanu Das) -all strangers on a vacation at the same destination.When Sikha sees love brewing between Labanya and Amit, she acts as the bridge that brings them together. The film was shot in Goa in a span of two weeks.Shomshuklla says, “Shahana, Uditvanu and Sikha worked so hard that their first take itself would be perfect. It was a great unit -right from my technical team to the actors.“

Chhuttii Aar Picnic, produced by Cut To Cut Productions, releases today.
