Video: Upcoming Bengali Film Nirbhoya

Director Milan Bhowmik’s Nirbhoya revolves around the heinous and grave crime of rape which has become so rampant in today’s time in India. Many instances of such crimes have been reported in different media. But the crime has not stopped. Instead it has increased and now women in India do not feel safe anywhere. Keeping this is mind, the director has showcased the story of Nirbhoya in a bid to increase awareness among the people and stop this crime against women.

Milan Bhowmik said “We worship many female goddesses yet we rape women in our country. This is a great hypocrisy showcased by the people in our country. This needs to be stopped. Soumitra Chatterjee who plays the role of a CM in the film says a wonderful thing at the end of the film. That is the message we have tried to give with this film”.


Soumitra Chatterjee, Sreelekha Mitra, Badshah Moitra, Surojit Debnath, Asish Vidyarthi, Meghali (lead role), Kharaj Mukherjee, Raj and others have played important roles in the film.

Raj plays the role of the boyfriend of Shalini, the character played by Meghali. “This was a gruesome incident and this has been shown in this film. With this film we hope that such incidents will stop and women will again feel safe in India” said actor Raj.


Meghali who is making her debut with this film mentioned that despite being offered other Bengali films, she waited for this film to release first as this was her first acted Bengali film. She also added that playing this role was a huge challenge as this was a real incident and it was a grave incident which shook the faith of the nation.

Shooting has been done in various parts of Kolkata and Delhi. There is only one song in the film which is a Rabindrasangeet. The background music is by Soumitra Kundu.

The film is eyeing for release on 31st August.
