DIVYA DUTTA in CHEHRE
In today's techno world when black and white movies are being converted into color, Bollywood now also seems to be going the "Schindler's List" way. Yes, CHEHRE will be the first film to be made in Black and White totally. The film casts very talented Divya Dutta sporting the look that of Actresses of yester years, like Meena Kumari.
Directed by debutant Rohit Kaushik CHEHRE is a suspense thriller and is set in the backdrop of 50's era. The story revolves around lives of two sisters. The movie is almost complete and in its Post Production stage and will be releasing soon.
Divya Dutta, who had given fabulous performances in movies like VEER ZAARA, WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR and stunned the audiences in the skin of her razor sharp and strong character of "Jalebi" in DELHI -6 says about accepting such an experimental film, "I am very excited about this movie. I have been a huge fan of stalwarts like Meena Kumari Ji and Nutan Ji. Playing a character based in 50's for a black and white movie was like stepping into their shoes. But I am glad that directors are coming up with innovative ideas and interesting subjects these days and are ready to experiment with the look of the film, as per the demands of script. When I heard that the film was not in colour and Black & White Instead, I was taken aback, but I immediately said yes as I knew it was one of its kind film."
The film is also a comeback for Manisha Koirala who is in a pivotal role in the film, playing one of the sisters along with Divya.
Now we will have to wait and watch whether in this commercialized World of Global Cinema, such an experiment will be worth to lure the audiences or not.
