The sensational Sheena Bora murder case took the nation by storm. Macneill Engineering Pvt. Ltd has undertaken a fictional adaptation of this incident and with director Agnidev Chatterjee’s help has made it into a film titled “Dark Chocolate”. The poster launch of this film took place recently in the presence of the cast and crew of the film.
The film takes a fictional route to sketch the life and times of femme fatale Indrani Mukherjee. “The movie is a work of art and fiction made to entertain and also narrate one of the darkest episodes of modern times” said director Agnidev Chatterjee.
The film is shot in Hindi, English and Bengali like any urban set up.
“This is one of the most shocking and diabolical crimes of our times. I have done a lot of research on the case and while I have tried to remain true to most of the case. However, some parts have been fictionalized for cinematic appeal and also to keep the element of wonder alive in the movie till the very end,” said director Agnidev Chatterjee.
Mahima Choudhury plays Ishani inspired by the character of Indrani Mukherjee, while Riya Sen plays Rina Bardhan inspired by Sheena Bora. Mumtaz Sorcar, Indrashis Roy, Kaushik Sen, Biswajit Chakroborty, Sudip Mukherjee, Shataf Figar, Rajesh Sharma, Rwik Basu among others play other important characters in the movie.
The movie is slated for release soon.
