Private Project

Rani Rani Rani

For Rani (Tannistha Chatterjee), the caretaker at an abandoned factory, in an almost-abandoned Indian village, it's just an ordinary day, trapped in a struggle for survival between a feckless husband (Asif Basra) on the one hand, and his brother and ruthless sister-in-law on the other. But when she happens upon a group of opportunists (led by Danny Sura) seeking to prove the efficacy of their mysteriously-acquired device to a potential buyer (Alexx O'Nell), her fortunes seem set to change. All they need is a 'volunteer', and for a small sum of cash she's lured into their machine. While she emerges seemingly unscathed, a violent turn of events makes Rani realise that changing the trajectory of her life might just be matter of a second chance, or a third... or maybe just a little more time...

Director Statement

It doesn't do justice to the amount of faith and goodwill the cast and crew of 'Rani Rani Rani' put into making this film a possibility, if I just say it is the result of a 'collaboration' or 'teamwork' or anything similar. This is as indie as indie gets, in process, emotion and spirit. I hope you like the film, and we all hope you find it worth your time and enjoy it.
