Private Project

Trust Me

Elina Sen, an actress of diminishing self-life but up in the air attitude, walks into the office of Dr Sinha, a psychiatrist, for a free counselling session. Dr Sinha greets her with charm and demeanour. She is here only because of a free counselling coupon which she did not want to waste. Well, that’s what she initially thinks and makes amply clear to the counsellor. But, as the session progresses, Dr Sinha peals layers after layers of her mind and makes her aware that how much she needs his help. A confident, fearless, happy go lucky Ela, who believes that she is the master of her fate, slowly realizes that she is just a doormat. Dr Sinha introduces her to the reality of her life, which she conveniently wants to ignore; from career to legit/illicit relationships to sexual orientation to all sorts of possible fears a human can possess.

Ela initially resists acknowledging the truth but gradually accepts, cries and finally feels broken but light.

The session seems to be a success. Ela is a basket case now. Or is it?

Director Biography - Partha Chakraborty

PARTHA CHAKRABORTY is a Film director and Communication Designer based out of Mumbai. He is a graduate of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad, with a specialisation in Film and Video Communications. As part of his final Project, Partha directed an extraordinary safety campaign for workers of Alang Ship-breaking yard (Gujarat) made in an innovative Bollywood style music video format. Since then he has directed films in almost all formats. But his dream is to take his skills to the large screen of Bollywood cinemas.

His approach towards filmmaking is a mix of artistic aesthetic and design sensitivity. For him, the target audience is as important as defining forms, treatment and style of storytelling. He believes in strong content aesthetically packaged for mass consumption, with layered communication, where everybody has something to get.

Partha has a deep interest in working with various relief and humanitarian support groups such as the World Social Forum and Citizen Initiative to help earthquake and riot victims of Gujarat, back in 2001/2002. He continues to work closely with UNICEF and other NGOs for various communication design and film projects.

At present Partha is the creative director for Watershed films with more than 15 years of experience.
