Have a look at the trailer.
An aged woman is seated on a bed. Mitul, played by Tillotama Shome straightens up from her upside-down angled posture on the bed and sits straight. She looks at the aged woman. All this while, from the beginning of the trailer, Pannalal Bhattacharyaa’s Aamar Shaadh Na Mitilo plays in the background. Rising in the noisy, bustling city of Kolkata, a man (Chandan Roy Sanyal) is seen at a door. The trailer is etched as a cinematic treat to the sensibilities of the discerning film buff. It’s wordless and potent with signifiers and symbols, letting the viewer viscerally into Madhura Mukherjee’s tale of ‘battleground of love, death, despair and desire.’ In a media statement, Madhuja had described the plot of Deep6 as “an extraordinary story of an ordinary woman Mitul.” Tillotama Shome provides a glimpse of her perceptive act.
Carrying Madhuja’s vision on their acting prowess are Tillotama Shome, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Sumeet Thakur, Maya Ghosh, Sumanta Mukherjee, and Soumitra Chatterjee. The veteran late actor will be seen in a scene, in what is one of his last on-screen appearances.
Madhuja Mukherjee is a professor of Film Studies at Jadavpur University and Deep6 is her second feature after her debut feature Carnival, which premiered at the 41st International Film Festival Rotterdam.
