Talented filmmaker Atiul Islam’s next directorial ‘Kisalay’ deals with the stern reality of a little girl’s school life. Are the digits on the mark sheet everything we need? Also, excessive pressure in early student life often throws a child into severe mental stress and depression.
The thriller has an ensemble cast including Debolina Dutta, Sudip Mukherjee, Sudipta Chakraborty, child artist Adrija Mukherjee, Vivek Trivedi, Debraj Mukherjee in pivotal roles. The story is by Tanvir Kazi while music will be composed by Amit Mitra and M. Rahaman. Indrani Banerjee and others will render their voice for the songs. The film, bankrolled by Aranyak Filmz, will soon start shooting.
Atiul’s film has a message for society, especially for parents. School children in India are being mistreated, and their creativity and passion are being killed, so that they can become machine-like, perfectly trained to become doctors and engineers. How these kids are subjected to educational overkill with an ever-increasing burden of homework forms the crux of the film.
