Film on Sunil-Nargis love story to be screened at Belize Filmfest

NEW DELHI: A film based on the book Together Forever by renowned America-based Indian filmmaker Mickey Nivelli and produced and directed by Nitin S Adsul is to be screened on the closing day of the Eighth Belize International Film Festival being held from 11 to 14 July.

Nivelli, who had commenced his career as an assistant with the late producer-director-actor Sunil Dutt was inspired by the true love between Dutt and actress Nargis who had later died of cancer, and its similarities to other events that happened in his life.

Mickey Harbance Kumar had left India and begun a film career in the Caribbean Islands, but later moved to New York. Here he met an ageing lady Lotte Nivelli, a Jew who had escaped Hitler‘s atrocities in Germany where she lost her husband and son to make a new life for herself in America. Mickey thereafter changed his name to Mickey Nivelli.

Inspired by the similarities of the love stories of Lotte and Felix and Dutt and Nargis, he wrote a book attempting to show that pure soul mates do meet in heaven.

The 42-minute film by Adsul is only a teaser to a full-length feature planned on the subject.


The story is about a seminar organised in New York to discuss the love Sunil Dutt had for his wife Nargi. The debate elaborates on how their love story gets intertwined with that of a German born couple, Lotte and Felix Joseph who were victims of Hitler‘s Nazism. India‘s movie star Sita Devi is ruthlessly dumped by her lover Kumar because he has fallen in love with someone else. She is devastated and goes to the US to attend the seminar. This story reflects the aspirations and dreams of lovers belonging to all religions, race, or color.

Mickey‘s films include Rainbow Rani, Girl from India, Heaven becomes Hell, Caribbean Fox and The Right and the Wrong.
