*Story behind the naked story-
It’ s very hard to work with suspense thriller, and it’s definitely much more harder to work with a psychological suspense thriller ,that is why it is very rear in Bollywood as well as Tollywood industry to make films about this matter. But Paayel Chouudhury has done the job very well. She has mixed this psychological suspense thriller with her wetty and smart screenplay presentation. In her script, she has highlighted many current social issues like child abuse, home violence, illegal and forceful abortions ,
sexual orientation crisis and lgbtq issues. But it could not be possible, if she has not got the famous child peditration Dr Prabir Bhowmik’s as her producer, who supported allthrough and gave his appreciation about this particular topic to go ahead, because these types of scripts are quite rare still now in Indian film history. So that it’s very tough to get producer for these films.
Her cast and crew also supported her throughout to make this film possible.. They shooted almost 18 to 19 hours a day to finish within the time slot. It was very tough to work in the unpredictable weather of dooars. Still the whole team had managed to finish the film. Lead actor Payel Chakraborty, who is no more with us, she worked in high fever also. In her high fever, she gave a shot in the bathtub, under water, all wet, around 2 am. Her dedication was priceless and unmeasurable. She was very smart, friendly, helpful, cheerful, fun loving, down to earth, cor-porate and dedicated team member and actor. She will be missed when her dream project will be showing on the screens.
In a nutshell, its an inteligent pshychological suspense thriller highlighing child abuse, child trauma, home violence, illegal abortion and its effect and sextual orientation crisis and lgbtq issues. A film with some crucial and current issues with deeply rooted social messeges.
