Sanjoy Nag’s Memories In March for Chennai film fest

MUMBAI: Having premiered at the Pusan International Film Festival and later screened at the MIAAC Film Festival and MAMI Film Festival, Sanjoy Nag’s Memories In March (MIM) has now been selected to be screened at the Chennai International Film Festival‘s Indian Panorama Section. The Festival will be held from 15 to 23 December.


Says Nag, "While discussing MIM with Mani Ratnam at a dinner in New York during the MIAAC Film Festival, he suggested that the film should be screened at the Chennai Film Festival. He suggested that I get in touch with his wife who is actively involved with the Festival. After coming back to Kolkata, I got in touch with her and everything was settled.”


Memories of March, made simultaneously in Hindi and English, tells the story of a bereaved mother Arati Mishra (Deepti Naval), who comes to Kolkata to collect her son’s ashes and belongings after his death. On meeting his friends and colleagues, she is amazed to see that their perspective about her son is so different and discovers a new side of him that she never knew as a mother.


The film was supposed to be solely in Bengali, but just before it went on floors it was changed to Hindi and English as there was no time for Deepti to learn Bengali.


“I came in the last minute, so there was very little time for the shoot to begin and I needed a couple of days to start learning Bengali. When I landed, there was no time left to learn Bengali, so Ritu said it’s easier for all to speak Hindi rather than teach me Bengali,” divulges Naval.


Asked about her experience of working with Rituparno Ghosh as an actor, she said: “We thought he will be trying to direct us, but it was a pleasant surprise that he stuck to his role of acting in the film. He is a wonderful actor.”
