Kuasha Jakhon Nominated in LIMPA as a Semi-Finalist

Last year, a Bengali Romantic thriller that stirred Kolkata audience was none other than “Kuasha Jakhon”. Directed by the debutant Directors Meenakshii and Abhishek, this film is a piece of art which was rarest of the rare. It’s very rare that we approach a genre like paranormal romance in Indian Cinema and “KUASHA JAKHON” was surely a very different and difficult attempt of

filmmaking that gave the audience of Bengal a real treat of cinema. With massive overtones of gothic and noir, this screenplay stands with the exclusive character-sketch that has been done justice by the director duo. Gargee Roy Chowdhury played Rajeshwari in the film which was one of the most

crucial characters that actually sums up the mystery in the flick and we know how powerful an actress she is. Rajeshwari is a mysterious character that surely had a magnetic influence in the minds of the audience. The second most important character was played by Rishav Basu, who had also
debuted in this movie. He played the central character in the movie where with the help of his master, he explored deeper and unknown facts hidden in his own self that helps other lives and cleanses their existence from issues known and unknown. There are incidents from 1960’s and happening in the
present time that summed up the story telling which accelerates in an alternative format, graphically moving towards the climax. Supporting major characters had been played by Shataf Figar, Manali Dey, Anindya Pulak Banerjee, Sudeshna Roy, Saon Dey, and others in pivotal roles. The film had received recognitions from various International Film Festivals and Awards. It has been ranked among one of the top ten films releasing worldwide, as selected by the Jury of the Festigious Film Festival (Los Angeles). It is the only Bengali film to be nominated as one of the 12 Films selected under the Best Asian Feature Film Category, in the London International Motion Picture Awards
