On Location HOTHAT EKDIN
hile Bengali cinema is going through a debatable phase, directors like Raaj Mukherjee are making judicious use of resources to come up with brave new ventures like ‘Hothat Ekdin’.
A comedy film that narrates the story of a single day, revolves around the seeds of doubt, and interestingly captures the eventual confusion and complications that shrouds the relationship of Saheb and Urmi as a consequence.
Using a bit of the city and a flat as the only location for the film, ‘Hotath Ekdin’ features Biswanath Basu, Locket Chatterjee, Rachana Banerjee, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Paran Bandopadhyay, Partha Sarathi Chakraborty and suchlikes.
Our little birdie recently visited the sets of this calm and composed director to witness the climax sequence of ‘Hothat Ekdin’ where all members converge to dissolve the grains of confusion.
“Doubt has now become a social disease. So, this film addresses that issue and uses a new treatment to comically narrate the story through a day’s incident,” said director Raaj Mukherjee.
Saheb (Biswanath) and Urmi (Locket) play husband & wife in the film while Rachana plays another interesting character in Nibedita after picking up worthy appreciation for 'Ramdhanu'. “The tastes of the modern audiences have changed, which prompts me to choose only those films that I feel have a different appeal for the audience and myself,” felt Rachana Banerjee.
The versatile Tota Roy Chowdhury plays a crisp police officer in the film and claims to have a great time on the sets. “This is like a serio-comic film where we are all trying to justify and compliment the treatment of this subject. It’s really a moon-fair out here where my co-stars are so amazing,” he explained with a broad smile.
The one song in the film has been composed by Rohan Ganguly and voiced by Sujoy Bhowmick.
“Kudos to such inspiring initiatives,” says Tollywood Dhamaka.
