The press conference of film Swadey Ahlaadey took place at Nandan 3 in the august presence of director Arindam Sil, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Sreelekha Mitra, Priyanka Sarkar, Bikram Ghosh and others.
The film Swadey Ahlaadey is about two women neighbors namely Chaitali and Kritika. Kritika is a single divorced woman while Chaitali is a docile housewife. How they befriend each other in their pursuit for economic independence and start a home delivery system is what the film is all about.
Actress Priyanka Banerjee plays the role of Kritika in the film. Speaking about her role, she said “Kritika has been born and brought up in South Kolkata. After her divorce she shifts to a North Kolkata locality as the place is near to her son’s school. She is a modern woman with modern thinking. This makes her a target of much criticism among the conservative people living in the particular locality of North Kolkata. She is only supported by Chaitali. When they start the business, she looks after the business part while Chaitali looked after the cooking part”.
Arindam Sil, the director of Swadey Ahlaadey said “This is the story of two women who befriend each other and seek economic independence. This is a story with which many people will be able to relate with. I understand women better and hence my films have strong women characters always. We all understand that one can only physically abuse a woman. However mental abuse of women is far more dangerous and many women have to face this regularly in many Bengali households. The film showcases essentially this idea”.
Since food also plays an important role in this film, actress Priyanka also revealed that they had delicious meals in between the shoots. “Sreelekha di used to say that she will not eat as she was becoming fat. But after a few moments she used to be the first person to start eating the particular dish. We all had great fun shooting the film” said the pretty actress.
Biswanath, Rita Koiral, Biswajit Chakraborty will be seen in important roles in the film, Swaadey Ahlaadey. The music of the film has been composed by Bikram Ghosh.
