After winning accolades for her performance in Kushan Nandy’s thriller “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz” actress Bidita Bag recently won the coveted “Best Supporting Actress” award at “Calcutta International Cult Film Festival 2018” for a bilingual (Tamil, Bengali) short film ‘Sinam’ (Anger).
In ‘Sinam’ she played an aspiring documentary film maker called Durga. This short film also marks Bidita Bag’s debut as a singer. She rendered a beautiful Bengali song composed by RabindraNath Tagore, “Ami tomari matir kanya”(I am a daughter of your soil).
“Sinam’ is a story of a prostitute called Shakti and documentary film maker Durga. The call is unsuspecting and it piques the interest of a documentary film-maker, when the caller identifies her as a prostitute and shocks her when she says that her father is the reason why she finds herself in a brothel today. When Durga, the film-maker visits Shakthi, the prostitute, we get to hear the story of the travails of a woman, named after an Indian Goddess confessing her story to another that bears a similar name of another Goddess! This ironical subtlety forms the bedrock of the narration, which is an account of anger (Sinam) prevailing over love.
The film is directed by Anand Murthy and produced by Nesan Thirunesan who recently launched the London and Chennai based film production house “Nesan Creations”.
“Sinam” won eight awards at an international film festival. Kollywood actress Sai Dhanshika of “Kabali” fame was also credited and won a “Best Actress” Award for the same film.
