National Award winning director SANJOY NAG (Memories of March) has pulled in a coup of sorts by having two National Award winning actresses REVATHY & RITUPARNA SENGUPTA star in his next directorial venture titled ‘GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE’, which is promising to be another award winning film of International scale.
Besides the film also features the very talented Tejaswani Kolhapuri (UGLY) and Shweta Tripathi (MASAAN fame). The film will be shot in Mumbai, Benaras, Lucknow and Mirzapur. The unit just completed a 2 days schedule in Mumbai yesterday.
Rai (Rituparna Sengupta), an aspiring director, pulls off a casting coup of sorts when yesteryear diva Radha (Revathy) finally gives her consent to play the lead in her debut feature film. Rai in her earlier avatar as a film critic of a TV Channel, had trashed Radha’s latest at the Box Office, resulting in an unpleasant manifestation of Radha’s ego, creating a vitiated atmosphere not to mention the frayed tempers.
Lack of access to hygienic sanitation & toilet facilities, especially for women in India, cutting across the socio-economic strata forms the thread which ties the story of “SUNSHINE”, the film being conceived. The film delves into the lives of diverse and interesting characters such as Leelavati (Shweta Tripathi from Masaan), a young runaway bride; Jamini (Tejaswini Kolhapure from Ugly) battling amnesia post her alleged rape; Anjali losing her only daughter Sonali while defecating in the open, and others around them who form a silent majority in India.
Thereafter the film is an exploration of how Radha’s life intertwines with that of Rai, Leelavati, Jamini & Anjali as they set about completing their film SUNSHINE, till an accident throws the film out of gear.
With the quality of the technical crew and award winning star cast, GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE is set to be a sure-fire winner!!
