After the national and international success of his previous venture ‘Cakewalk’ and ‘Seasons Greetings’ director Ram Kamal Mukherjee geared up for his next, ’Broken Frame’ with Rohit Bose Roy and Ritabhari Chakraborty as the lead. This film is basically based upon his short story ’Long Island Iced Tea’. The tale revolves with martial ordeals of a couple in at present time. On this note, the author turned director Ram Kamal Mukherjee says, “I am happy to have Rohit and Ritabhari as the lead couple in my film. This story has been appreciated by my colleagues and friends from the film fraternity. I always wanted to make this film, and I am happy that finally, it’s happening.’’
Ritabhari who plays the female lead made her Bollywood debut with ‘Pari’ produced by Anushka Sharma. Sharing her excitement on associating with this film Ritabhari says, “When Ram Kamal narrated me the story I was taken aback. This is a very simple story of a married couple with a twist in the tale. Something which I have never tried on screen. I have seen his work in Cakewalk and liked it.’’
Meanwhile, Rohit Bose Roy is geared up to make his mark again with this film. “It just took a phone call from Ram Kamal. I know him as a firebrand journalist and author, I loved Esha Deol’s character in Cakewalk. Since then I wanted to do something with him. Thankfully he called and narrated me the story. I was totally blown away when I read the script of Broken Frame. Even for a short film, every scene unfolded beautifully into another world when I was least expecting it, it makes you smile and then makes you cry and then makes you smile again all within minutes. I simply loved it,” added Rohit.
This short length feature film will be produced by Aritra Das, Gaurav Daga and Shailendra Kumar. Producer Aritra Das says, “I read Broken Frame when we launched Ram Kamal da’s book ‘Long Island Iced Tea’ in Kolkata. Since then I was keen on making this as a web series, but somehow things didn’t materialize. Later when we launched our film production company and made three short films, we wanted to revive the project. That’s when I met Ritabhari and mentioned her about the story. She instantly liked it and then we got Rohit Roy on board.”
The film will be shot in Kolkata under the banner of Assorted Motion Pictures and SS 1 Entertainments. Music by Shailendra Sayanti, Screenplay & Dialogue written by Sameer Satija, Cinematography by International award winner Modhura Palit who recently worked with Ram Kamal in his Bengali film Rickshawala.
