Video: Crisscross Trailer Launch

The trailer launch of the upcoming Bengali film Crisscross took place recently in the august presence of director Birsa Dasgupta, Priyanka Sarkar, Mimi Chakraborty, Nusrat Jahan, Sohini Sarkar, Ridhima Ghosh, Gaurav Chakrabarty and Jaya Ahsan. The event took place at Hard Rock Cafe.


The film revolves around the lives of five women namely Meher, Ira, Rupa, Suzy and Miss Sen. Meher is an aspiring actor who faces financial trouble with her family and landlord. She is unable to pay money for her crippled brother or even pay the rent. Ira is given the choice of marrying her boyfriend Archie (Arjun Chakrabarty) or going after her job which he feels she prioritizes more than him.


Rupa is a troubled wife stuck in a loveless marriage where her brother-in-law continuously forces himself on her. Miss Sen who is a successful loner has an established business which is on the verge of closing down. Suzy is a single mother with financial issues who has to keep her son in school.


Speaking about her character, Mimi Chakraborty said “The choice that Ira has to make is faced by many journalists working in the media. They often have to choose between marriage and career. It is this aspect that has been shown with the help of my character. What she ultimately does is what the audience will get to know once they see the film”.


Looking gorgeous in a black short dress, Nusrat Jahan said “We did not have many scenes together. I did however have some scenes with my other co-actors. What I did was often I used to come early so that we could give each other company or have lunch together”.


Priyanka Sarkar who is a single mother in real life mentioned that many people have been pointing this resemblance between her life and Suzy’s life. “Yes, there is a bit of similarity but I have friends and family to support me. And by God’s grace, I have never faced such financial crisis. There were situations which reminded me of real life issues. It was then I had to control my emotions and act. That was tough at times” said the actress.

The film is eyeing for release on the 10th of August.
