wrong” Does this philosophy sustain in Buno Haansh I have never consciously thought of it that way I felt this philosophy run through the story of my earlier film Aparajita Tumi where things happen whether you want them to happen or not I liked Samaresh Majumdar’s original story and stuck to the philosophy in Buno Haansh How different do you feel Buno Haansh is from your earlier films I have widened my target audience to reach out to the masses In Buno Haansh the protagonist and his close ones belong to the lower middle-class of Kolkata living in a sort of ghetto Besides I wanted to make an edgy film for a change not just a thriller but a thriller that is socially-relevant contemporary in character and something I can closely identify with It is very important for me to be able to identify myself with my films their characters stories etc This is a new subject for me so it became a challenge for me to be ‘different’ from my earlier films How do you interpret the causes that led Aparajita Tumi to have become a disaster Who said it was a disaster It wasn’t and in fact it did much better than other mainstream films released around the same time that year It ran for 50 days which was more than the run of Antaheen This ‘hit-flop’ business is based on wrong perceptions for whatever reasons Critically it was panned negatively What kind of motivation drove you to make Buno Haansh Every creative artist is driven by the emotional and social realities that sustain during a given time – mostly contemporary – to tell a new story perhaps using different ways to tell it than he did before He needs different people to be able to narrate that story to his target audience My mind and body responded to my creative instincts to make an edgy and dark film and Buno Haansh is the result Buno Haansh is led by some of the most successful commercial actors in Bengali cinema like Dev and Shrabanti What made you cast them The first reason is that I wanted to work with these actors who have been very successful in mainstream Bengali cinema and have hardly worked in this kind of film which is slightly non mainstream Besides they exude a strong aura of freshness and youth The second reason is that Buno Haansh is content-driven and though the characters are important they do not dominate or overshadow the content Thirdly I wanted to address a larger audience — my earlier films were dubbed ‘niche’ because they addressed an urban educated and elitist audience Fourthly my film is rooted in the Bengali identity and is defined by down-to-earth middle-class Bengali characters I felt these youngsters had it in them to deliver what I wanted them to And to their credit I must say that they have shone brilliantly The audience’s perception of Dev as an actor will change completely after seeing this film You have shot on location in Bangkok Was this a strategy for commercial success Bangkok happened because the original story features it We have shot extensively on location in Dhaka and Manikgunge in Bangladesh in Mumbai Pune and Kolkata In a way it is a road movie because it charts the journey – real and metaphorical – of its protagonist Amal that includes the ‘metaphorical’ journeys of people he is connected to How much liberty did you take with the original story A story is like a piece of land while the screenplay is like the platform The film takes off from there It is a very organic process almost like a cosmic connection and I allow it to take its own shape to grow to happen As a film-maker which do you think plays a more significant role – form or content It is a fine blend of both like the right malt A story needs technical expertise and a lot of elements go into its making Cinema is a collaborative effort because everything is co-related and one can not prioritise the one for the other For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Published: June 17 2016 4:39 pm Chris Woakes scored 105 runs in three innings and picked up eight wickets in the Sri Lanka Tests (Source: AP) Top News All-rounder Chris Woakes is confident that England selectors will be able to squeeze both Ben Stokes and himself into the starting lineup for the four-match Test series against Pakistan starting next month Woakes was called up to the side last month after fellow all-rounder Stokes injured his knee during the first Test victory over Sri Lanka in Leeds The 27-year-old went on to score 105 runs in three innings and picked up eight wickets as England romped to a 2-0 series victory over the Sri Lankans following a comfortable win in Durham and a rain-affected draw at Lord’s “I’d be stupid to think that if Ben (Stokes) is fit I’m going to play (over him) but I might have given them (the selectors) a headache I might be able to fit into the team even if he is involved again” Woakes told British media Meanwhile Test team mate Stuart Broad has set his sights on representing England at the 2019 50-overs World Cup after the seamer was omitted from the squad for the Sri Lanka one-day series announced earlier this week “A big aim of mine is to be in that World Cup squad in 2019 The two major tournaments coming up are that and the Champions Trophy and I’ve got to plot a way back in really” said Broad who is England’s third-highest wicket-taker in one-day cricket “I’m still only 29… A lot of people have played at World Cups at 32 and that’s certainly not an old age for a cricketer so I’ve got huge goals to be a part of that and have to pick some stuff to get involved in” The 2019 World Cup is being hosted by England and Wales For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi | Updated:
