A quirky comedy-drama about a modern working woman
Here’s some sweetness for the soul this Christmas! Mainak Bhaumik’s film Cheeni, starring Aparajita Adhya and Madhumita, releases on December 25 only in theatres. The film is a quirky comedy-drama about a modern working 25-year-old woman Aditi Banerjee (Cheeni) and her eccentric 50-year-old mother Sarojini Banerjee (Mishti) who have a complicated love-hate relationship. Cheeni is a film that brings forth the real-life problems of a typical family through its realistic narrative and character portrayal.
“What if you grow up and realise your mom seems a little cooler than you? Sounds scary, funny and can lead to a lot of fights. That was my take off point for the film. It’s a celebration of mothers and daughters. Christmas is a time of memories and celebration, so it’s a bit in sync with where we are headed. It is a film that encompasses all the elements of human emotions, be it love, anger or humour,” says Mainak. The goal was to make a light-hearted film that people would relate to. “It is always a pleasure to work with Aparajita Adhya as she flawlessly fits in every role. Madhumita and Saurav (Das) have done a very good job with their characters. I hope the film is liked and enjoyed by the audience,” smiles Mainak.
Feeling positive about the release, co-founder and director of SVF, Mahendra Soni, says: “This difficult year have had enough impact on our lives. It’s time to bring back positivity and what could be a better start than watching a good film that will touch people’s hearts! Cheeni is a very special production of SVF and thus we are highly optimistic. When it comes to Mainak Bhaumik’s films, the audience expects the best. ”
