The trailer of Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy’s upcoming Bengali film Haami was launched on 9 April. The film features noted choreographer Tanusree Shankar, Koneenica Banerjee, Debolina Dutta, Sujan Mukhopadhyay, Kharaj Mukherjee and child artistes Tiyasha Pal and Broto Banerjee in important roles. Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Gargee Roy Choudhury will also be seen reprising their roles from Ramdhanu (2014) in the film. The film tackles the problems that exist in today’s times between school students and educational institutions!
Haami, a story on the relationships between students, parents, and teachers in school, deals with the recently reported cases of sexual abuse in some of the noted schools in Kolkata. The trailer suggests that the director duo has not only attempted to portray the insecurities and fear of the parents but have also highlighted the plight that the teachers and the school committee members go through when such incidents occur. The chaos and miscommunication surrounding the issue have been woven well with the effect it has on the child’s psychology and his/her friendships. It looks like the film will also tap on to the complexities of adolescence with a not-so-friendly school atmosphere in the backdrop.
The real stars of the film according to the director duo are Broto Banerjee (class one student), Aviraj Karan (class two student) and Tiyasa Pal (class two student). It is to capture their innocence that the director duo decided to make this film in this year. The music of this film is by Anindya Chatterjee. Its certainly shows that the director duo is well ahead of other directors in making a film on such social matters and that too in a humorous way. This Windows production is releasing 11th of May 2018.
