‘Lakadbaggha’ – premiers at Kolkata Film Festival

Kolkata: The lead cast of film ‘Lakadbaggha’, Anshuman Jha, Ridhi Dogra along with Director Victor Mukherjee and the Music Composer Simone Fransquet attended the premiere at Kolkata International Film Festival.
The film is a Kolkata set story of a courier boy living in Hartaki Bagan, who is a ‘Krav-Maga’ (Israeli Martial Arts Form) teacher and his love for Indian desi dogs leading him to unearth a huge animal trade nexus.
Rabindranath Tagore’s Purano Sei has been re- composed by Fransquet & sung by Shruti Pathak
for the said film. And the audiences in Kolkata will get to hear this 21st century rendition of a Tagore Classic FIRST tomorrow.
Anshuman said, ‘Where the mind is without fear & the head is held high’ said Tagore and that is my aim while choosing scripts. Our effort is to consciously visit these classics which is our incredible country’s rich tradition. And Tagore & his words have inspired me since childhood. Revisiting ‘Purano Sei’ is a small effort at our end as artists to make the cultural & literary genius of Tagore accessible, in some way, to the younger generation in the 21st century. And Shruti Pathak has done magic with her voice.’
The film is also officially selected to Open the HBO South Asian International Film Festival in New York, 2022. And has action by the stunt team behind Ong-Bak (Kecha Khamphakdee) & Force Square. And has a hyena (Lakadbaggha) in the middle of the narrative about Indian Street dogs.
Produced by First Ray Films, whose last release was the LGBTQ+ themed ‘Hum Bhi Akele, Tum Bhi Akele’, the film is set to hit the big screens in 2023. (UNI)
