Kishmish is Dev’s and Rukmini’s sixth film together and is eyeing a winter release at theatres.
Popular Bengali actor Dev and Rukmini will share screen space in Rahool Mukherjee’s Kishmish. This is the sixth film of the duo, after Chaamp, Cockpit, Kabir, Kidnap and Password. Dev took to his Instagram to announce the wrap of the much-awaited film.
Posting a fun picture from the sets, Dev wrote in the post,
This one's gonna be all Heart! We promise!”
Have a look at it here.
The shooting for Kishmish began in August. The film is special for fans of the Challenge actor as he will play four different characters from different timelines, traversing the age group arc from a 17-year-old boy to a 45-year-old man. The actor reportedly lost 15 kgs for his role and took workshops to do justice to his role in the film. Speaking about the film to TOI, Dev said the workshops helped him get the nuances and psychology of the characters well. “The characters in the film have different shades and age groups which makes it even more challenging,” he had told the daily.
While shooting in Kolkata for the film, Rukmini Maitra had told ToI that her character Rohini Sen is relatable, and one who prizes her closed ones, her relationships and her convictions. “Rohini also represents the new age college topper whose views have always been liberal, but if you are speaking about the love, she prefers to go by the old school way,” she had added.
Kishmish is bankrolled by Dev Entertainment Ventures and MK media. The official film announcement was dropped on Youtube on February 14 this year. Have a look here.
The last leg of the film was shot in Ghoom in Darjeeling, in the backdrop of the beautiful Kanchenjunga. But most parts of the film were shot in Kolkata. The film was slated to hit the big screen during Durga Pujo but has been pushed back for a theatrical release in winter this year, considering the pandemic situation.
Kishmish has well-known actors like Kharaj Mukherjee, Kamaleshwar Mukherjee, Anjana Basu and June Malia in key roles along with Ankush, Rituparna Sengupta and Jisshu Sengupta in cameos. It is a romantic comedy that has been billed to have some cool 2D animation and looks at love in different timelines, and how it has evolved right up to the modern-day.
