Ram Kamal Mukherjee to film his fourth short, Broken Frame in Kolkata
Mumbai-based Writer and filmmaker Ram Kamal Mukherjee is going to make another short film -- his fourth in Hindi -- Broken Frame based on the first short story of his bestselling Long Island Iced Tea, a collection of eight short stories published in 2017 by Leadstart Publishing. The maker of such acclaimed films including Cakewalk in which Esha Deol Takhtani acted and Season's Greetings that was the first film to have a transgender Sree Ghatak in one of the lead roles, the director decided to make a short after his attempts to turn his book into a web series didn't materialise.
"It's one of the most popular stories from the book and I received a good response from the film fraternity," says Ram Kamal Mukherjee.
The film revolves around the life of a happily married couple, whose lives change after an incident on the night of their wedding anniversary. "Short films are all about human relationships. Within a limited time, we need to tell a story that would intrigue the viewers. We tweaked the narrative of the story keeping the language of cinema in mind," adds Ram Kamal.
Produced by Aritra Das, Gaurav Daga and Shailendra Kumar, the film will be shot in Kolkata during the monsoons. "I remember how celebrities would call Ram Kamal to praise this particular story. It's a beautiful romantic story with a twist in the tale," says Aritra Das of Assorted Motion Pictures.
The cast of the film will be announced soon. "I have seen Cakewalk and I wanted to work with Ram Kamal and Aritra. They are young and generating interesting content. The story of Broken Frame excited me," says Gaurav Daga.
Shailendra Kumar from SS1 Entertainment who also doubles up as the music director of the film says, "This is our fourth venture as a team. After Cakewalk, Seasons Greetings and Rickshawala, I am really looking forward to this association". The screenplay and dialogue have been penned by Sameer Satija and the teaser poster is designed by Ekta Bhattacharya.
