About the film
On the verge of releasing his first album, Aniruddha 'Andy' Chakraborty juggles a maddening life of work, music, isolation and discrimination for being a homosexual. Amidst all this, he tries to immerse himself deeper into his art to overcome a terrible loss he encountered few years ago.
I believe stories have a purpose, and there is no greater story than the one about love and loss. Before considering that our protagonist is gay, I had to first consider him as a human being. This led me to understand him in a light that made me realize how truly precious he is to the world. His own struggles gave me hope and strength to fight my own depression because he is indeed a veteran in the battlefield of life.
My goal is to make people feel the same chills down their spines as I had, sitting in a room and listening to his stories. And then to make them see how silly it is to judge a person from his exterior. Even if one person is able to empathize with his story and feel for him, I will consider this film a success.
Pursuing a course in Direction and Screenplay Writing from the acclaimed Satyajit Ray Film & Television Institute (SRFTI) in Kolkata, Mon hopes to one day write and film stories that would be able to touch all the people who are a part of his world. He is willing to learn, to write and to rewrite for as long as it takes.
