Babar Nam Gandhiji Famed Director Pavel’s Next Venture; A Documentary on Irom Chanu Sharmila


After making his debut with the Bengali film Babar Naam Gandhiji, director Pavel is back with a documentary film on Irom Chanu Sharmila. The young director had earlier made documentary films on Debabrata Biswas and Nabarun Bhattacharya.

Pavel initially wanted to make a biopic on Irom but she did not want a biopic made on her. She did not want anyone to act in her place. She will not give the rights to anyone to make a biopic to anyone. He went to meet with Irom in November and she took him to attend a meeting. Then she had a change of heart and asked him that he could make a documentary on her if he wanted.

Jaspreet Kaur will be financing this documentary. The young director will go for a few days to Manipur every month to complete the shooting. Pavel estimated that it will take him two and half years to finish the shooting. He is also hopeful that the lady might actually allow him to make a film on her.

Pavel has been working day and night to collect information on Irom. We wish the young director all the best for this new venture!!

Upcoming Bengali film Ritu Chaya Deals with the Crucial Issue of Eye Donation; Shooting Continues in Kolkata


Upcoming Bengali film Ritu Chaya is currently being shot in different parts of the city. The second production of Tiyasa Movies, Ritu Chaya is being directed by Deblina.


Speaking about the film, Deblina said “The story is about a Zamindar named Janardhan Babu. His Zamindari may no longer be present but he still maintains the past glory and splendor. He has two daughters- Ritu and Chaya. Ritu is his own daughter and Chaya is a girl whom he has raised as his own daughter. However his love for both is equal. Ritu however becomes blind due to an accident. Chaya takes care of her and it is through her eyes that Ritu sees the world. Due to a superstition in the village, eye donation cannot be done. Saumya comes to the village and tries to break this superstition about eye donations. Whether he is successful or not is what the film all about”.
