Mahananda is Coming Soon
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Director Arindam Sil's new Bengali Film from the house of Friends Communication, Mahananda is Coming Soon. Mahananda is the story of this passing on of the torch. The torchbearers from different ages who carry forward the concept, the movement named Mahashweta. It is a story of giving direction to the lives in this time of social-political unrest. Director Arindam Sil said that Every journey has a beginning. Mahananda is no different and this journey began with a packet. Yes a packet that Gargee (Roy Chowdhury) handed him. It was from Asoke Dasgupta who had scribbled a few pointers and stated that a film should be made on the life and times of Mahashweta Devi. He was quite surprised that he had chosen to give me this task for him only made thrillers and detective movies. But he felt that Arindam Sil could do justice to his thoughts, which is a humbling compliment, and talk about her life. When he sat and thought about it, he realised that no matter
what film he made he talked about life about humanity and maybe somewhere in his heart he wanted to do a movie about humanity. Mahashweta Devi is just not an author or a character from the fiction called life because she has seen the rise and fall of it. He thinks that she has been forgotten and swept aside by the Bengalees, yet she should have been at the forefront of the consciousness. He also added that they feel her contribution to the mainstream has eternal value and hence this movie is not about the life or death of someone, it is about an author Mahananda whose character has similarities with the life and persona of Mahashweta Devi and another person from a very different background and upbringing becomes interested in Mahananda. She is a young vibrant Mahalaya. She slowly evolves in the presence and under the influence of Mahananda. It's the blossoming of a philosophy that can save mankind. Produced by Firdausul Hasan, Directed by Arindam Sil, the film is featuring Gargee Roy Chowdhury and other eminent persons.
