A year and a half after she first made an impressive debut with DEV D, Kalki Koechlin would now be seen on the big screen again. The film is titled THE FILM EMOTIONAL ATYACHAR (earlier known as HAPPY JOURNEY) and obviously takes a cue from the namesake track that created waves ever since it was heard first in DEV D. Though one expects a dark film once again, the leading lady insists that it is more of a dark comedy with fair amount of action interspersed as well.
"It is not an extension of DEV D. Instead, it is a road thriller with black humour in it. The story is set on a deserted highway between Mumbai and Goa and revolves around incidents that take place in one night to four sets of travelers," says Kalki who has carving her own niche in the industry while doing different roles in offbeat films.
"But then EMOTIONAL ATYACHAR is not entirely offbeat actually," defends Kalki who has recently wrapped up a major schedule of her film with Abhay Deol - ZINDAGI NA MILEGI DOBARA, "It is a Hinglish film and it's USP is the mysterious interconnection between these stories the four stories. The movie unfolds in a non-linear format though the end motive for everyone out here is money."
With an ensemble cast of Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Mohit Alawat and Ravi Kissen, one does expect a unique tale in the offing from debut production house 'Purple Haze'. "That's right, the film has a dark comedy tone to it," Kalki brightens up here, "Also, there is a lot of action here. By all means, it was an altogether different experience from DEV D."
THE FILM EMOTIONAL ATYACHAR releases all over on 3rd September, the same day as WE ARE FAMILY.
