Emotions are always high during the festive season, and that’s what makes the timing of this new short film by National Award-winning film-maker Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury so relevant.
In his latest project, titled ‘DEBI’, the viewer is taken through a myriad of emotions all revolving around coming back home after being away from one’s country and one’s family for a long time.
The film, which was released on YouTube, is based in Kolkata around the time of Durga Puja. It jolts emotions of missing out on what family means and a sense of regret that constantly pricks when one fails to spend parents’ last days with them for deciding to be away, as well as the introduction of one’s previous life to the next generation.
