Director Tathagata Mukherjee’s upcoming film ‘Akorik’ features Rituparna Sengupta as a single mother and marks veteran actor Victor Banerjee’s return to Bengali Cinema after quite a long time. This film is sort of a reunion for the two actors since both of them had once acted in quite a few critically acclaimed films. The film ‘Akorik’ revolves around the story of a 75-year-old man who grew up in a traditional Bengali joint family structure and a 10-year-old boy who lives with his mother, who happens to be a single parent. The 75 year old man is enjoying his life staying in a beautiful town amidst the hills with his wife, where the boy has come for a vacation with his mother. The old man and the boy developed an emotional connection during their interactions and eventually shared a philosophical journey together.
Apart from actors Victor Banerjee and Rituparna Sengupta, the film casts actors Anuradha Roy, Supratim Roy, Jayashree Adhikari, Sudeshna Chakraborty and Angana Basu among others in important roles.
Recently the trailer of the family-drama ‘Akorik’ was released where the director along with the cast and crew were present. Produced by Iceberg Creations and Co-produced by Deepak Parik, the storyline of the film is written by Salil Sarkar. The music has been directed by Devjit Bera.
The film was screened at the 28th Kolkata International Film Festival and is releasing in theatres for the audience on April 7th, 2023.
