2012-12-27 18:15:35 - Debutant film-maker Niloy Chakrabarty hopeful that the suspense thriller will keep viewers on edge
New York, New York – After the recent success of small budget home productions, it has prompted many “at heart a film-maker” to explore their creative side. Manasik is a Bengali film (wiki: Bengali), adapted from the script “The Killing Gene” by Australian playwright Tim Ratcliffe. A taut, new genre, psychological thriller, 'Manasik' (“In My Mind” in English), reflects the attributes of a human mind and the impression it builds on us for us to do certain things.
Director Niloy Chakrabarty said - “The type of technology to build Hollywood films in the 80s and 90s are available at an affordable consumer retail price today. All you need to do is layer your creative side and you can tell your
story to the world.”
Niloy’s appreciation for complex psychological narratives made him conceptualize and direct Manasik. “You can say it was a hidden desire I harbored for few years; encouragement from friends and family brought it to celluloid or silicon as the entire film has been shot and edited digitally”. “There will be subtitles for global viewership”, he added.
The movie will be available on YouTube (www.YouTube.com/LostTrackFilms) and popular on-demand membership based internet streaming media provider like Databazaar (www.databazaarmedia.net) and supported by reputed radio partners like Radio Dil, Washington Bangla Radio (US) and Radio Bangla Net (UK and Europe). The movie has been shot in hi-definition.
The short twenty minute suspense thriller’s background score is being created and mastered in Dolby Digital by music producers Aninda Bose and Vasanth Vaseegaran.
Lead character Shankar Ghoshal echoed “It was a nice script and I enjoyed playing the characters. I am sure the viewers will be glued till the end”. “This genre of movies may usher new direction in Bengali contemporary and independent cinema.” adds Pinaki, who plays another important character.
