It is a sign of great times that Bollywood filmmakers try and experiment with different subject and themes. What is different in the present times is that producers and directors are willing to put in huge money and rope in A grade actors in films belonging to unchartered territory. The latest work is that of writer-director Rumy Jafry who is ready to release CHEHRE this week.
“Chehre is based on the theme of purgatory which means purification of oneself or punishment for committing a crime,” share the writer-director Rumy Jafry and producer Anand Pandit.
As we begin to get back to our regular lives, the one thing that keeps us going, whether it was during the pandemic lockdown or now, it is the world of entertainment.
Exciting new films are releasing soon and the one that the audience seems to be eagerly waiting for is the Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi starrer Chehre.
Talking more about this unique, never-been-experienced-before theme, director Rumy Jafry says, “Every filmmaker wants to make sure that they bring those stories forward that excite the audience. When we started working on Chehre, we saw how the script developed into something that all us working on it would also like if we were a member of the audience.”
Says Anand Pandit, “This movie intricately deals with the theme of Purgatory. We want to make sure that this intrigues the audiences enough. The Purgatory is an unchartered territory that Indian makers are yet to explore. Hence, we are looking forward to sharing this with audiences”.
Produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures & Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited, directed by Rumy Jafry, “Chehre” also stars Annu Kapoor, Krystle D’Souza, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, Siddhanth Kapoor and Rhea Chakraborty. The film releases in theatres on August 27, 2021.
