Uma, produced by SVF, has a heart-warming and touching storyline which is leaving a lasting impact. The film released nationally in Mumbai, Delhi NCR, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Ranchi, etc. on the same day as Bengal – 1st of June.
To quote Mahesh Bhatt – “In these dark times comes a film of outrageous HOPE! Srijit Mukherjee’s UMA celebrates the spirit of Kolkata and makes you fall in love with it.”
The film is inspired from the true story of Evan Leversage, the Canadian boy suffering from cancer and for whom his village of St. George, Ontario came together to celebrate Christmas two months before the actual festival is celebrated worldwide.
In her case, Uma’s father, Himadri makes an all-out effort to take her to Kolkata to fulfil her desire to witness Durga Puja, the most celebrated Bengali festival. How many hurdles and dangers would Himadri have to overcome to be able to bring a smile onto his daughter’s face?
Uma is directed by National Award winning director Srijit Mukherji and has ace actors Jisshu Sengupta, Anjan Dutt, Sayantika Banerjee, Srabanti, Anirban Bhattacharya and Rudranil Ghosh playing prominent characters.
