Director Statement

From the day i bunked my 9 hours desk job to meet the DP team, till Dec 26, 2016 when I finally put my hands up and made the first DVD copy of the short film - "Chanachur" (English Translated Title - "Bombay Mix"), the year long journey has been the most tiring, tumultuous, heart breaking, inspiring, confusing but a never boring one. It taught me many things, both on and off set... which i am only thankful to god to have thrown them my way.

I started the film with the fortune of 12 people on set... was left with 2.. and then alone for a month and a half running against time and situations to edit, sound design, color correct and present a 20 min short film. I will be honest to confess that I cried many times... felt the film was going nowhere. I felt a sense of loneliness and 'deja vu' of failing.

Yet some people and situations continued to inspire and motivate me ... viz my Cast - the 81 years old Pushpendra Krishna Bhowmik' s hard work and dedication on set and dubbing sessions, my Floor assistant - Shilpi Bhowmik's unconditional care to feed us with chicken on set, my DP - Nilanjan Bhowmik's passion and fatherly care for the film and an outsider's belief in me meant that the film needed to see light.

Film is ready and people have shed a tear or two watching it... only a handful of people maybe, but i count it as our success.
