“Ram Cine Arts” is back in Bengali films after 3 decades with yet another flick titled Prime Time. After their block-buster gift to the Bengali community with Dadar Kirti(Directed By Tarun Majumder) starring Debasree Roy, Mahua Roychoudhury, Anup Kumar, Tapas Pal and others they are shooting for their upcoming movie “Prime Time”.
Prime Time has been directed by Ipsita Seal who is also a lawyer of Calcutta High Court. With this thriller drama she is taking the plunge into the world of film making.
Prime Time stars Indraneil Sengupta, Paoli Dam, Arijit Dutta and Rana Mitra.
Speaking with Sholoana Bangaliana in between the shots, director Ipsita Seal said, “The film is set in Kolkata and shooting will also be done in the outskirts and parts of Krabi,Thailand”. Prime Time is all about thrill and ambition. It also shows the extent one can go to achieve success and how it affects their lives. Chandana (Paoli) goes through a journey of incidents exploring various sequences. How Sayantan (Indraneil Sengupta) deals with the various odds and how Chandana comes around as support is what the film is all about.
Ipsita Seal weaves a script that shuffles the senses questioning ‘what next?’. The dialogues are articulate and immaculate, investigating the matter gradually and building up the thrill at every step. The story explores the case systematically, credibly and logically but races through thrills and twists. And what enhances the thrill is the format of story-telling.
When asked for her selection of Paoli, the director said “She has extremely expressive eyes and a body language that carries the role of the female protagonist Chandana, with ease and grace. The character is vulnerable yet assertive and soft. But when the time comes she erupts with a latent aggression that seals the fate of the story”.
Surajit Chatterjee of Bhoomi is composing music for the film with Kamalini Chatterjee being the lyricist .The other interesting fact about the movie is that Srijato has penned down a couple of poems which has been inserted in the script along with mind-blowing recitation of “Mohul”-the poetry band.
Prime Time promises to be a good treat for the viewers for sure.
