‘HAAMI’ Is A Film For Both : The Parents And The Child,,!


Director duo Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee are back yet again with their next Bengali film, ‘Haami‘ featuring Shiboprosad Mukherjee, Gargee RoyChowdhury, Tanusree Shankar, Churni Ganguly, Aparajita Adhya, Sujan Mukherjee, Debolina Dutta, Devlina Kumar, Koneenica Bandyopadhyay Kharaj Mukherjee, Tiyasha Pal (child actress), Aviraj Karan (child actor) and Broto Banerjee (child actor).

Gargee RoyChowdhury and Shiboprosad Mukherjee will be seen sharing screen space in this film, are playing the roles of Mitali and Laltu Biswas, parents to a cute kid. We have seen Mr. Laltu Datta kill with his parenting skills in the director-duo’s earlier film ‘Ramdhanu’ (2014). So what is going to be new this time???

In this 107 seconds teaser gives us certain ideas about it. From the previous movie ‘Ramdhanu‘ (2014), we see Laltu Dutta with his wife Mitali in a interview with his child’s school teachers where he is asked to define certain English terms in order to check his parenting skills. Now Laltu being Laltu, has an altogether different answer in his half-English-half-Bengali hybrid diction, and the teachers are left with no words except laughter! From the middle of the video we have seen about ‘Haami‘ where Laltu Biswas is again facing a panel of teachers to whom he confesses to hae done notorious deeds in his school life! His mischievous deeds are somewhat a bit a vulgar to be confessed in front of his child’s school principal teacher. The father of the child, Laltu, has portrayed the characters two different types of fathers in both the movies. But even in their contrasts, they raise the same set of questions. So the question is: what kind of a parent is Laltu?  How important is it today that children as well as their parents are know how to speak, what to speak, and where?

However, in a popular reality show of Bengali television, when the directors along with the child actors of this film appeared for publicising the film, a certain glimpse of the film is shown where Laltu and Mitali‘s son struggles with his classmates over whether to call a certain food item by its Bengali name or the Hindi-cum-English name denoted to it. This again raises the question of what the child’s parents have taught! So will Laltu be able to cope up with his son’s school and its culture? Or will both the parents and the child suffer? This film will show the basic bonding between prents-child & school.

To know more, wait for more updates from us regarding this movie ‘Haami‘ which is scheduled to be released on 11th May of this year .
