“HELLO ARSI” NEW HOPE FOR ODIA ART CINEMA

Bhubaneswar:20/4/18;Odisha had much to cheer about. Odia film Hello Arsi won big at the 65th National Film Awards, bagging the coveted award in three categories straight. It won the Best Odia Film Award along with actress Prakruti Mishra winning Special Mention in the film and Best Dialogue. Unfortunately, the director and dialogue writer of the film, Sambit Mohanty, succumbed to brain stroke a few months ago. He had conceptualised, written the story and screenplay of the film. Such is the brilliance of the film that while announcing the awards, Shekhar Kapur, the head of the jury for feature films, said, “If I try to make this film, I will fail.”

 

Synopsis:Sudden Industrialization and big scale mining activities in central- eastern India, in the twenty-first century, has affected the socio-economic fabric of society which was earlier dependent on agriculture. People feel alienated due to this shift. A new meaning in life has to emerge. In this backdrop, a young man and a young woman cross each other’s path accidentally, each searching for his/her identity. Their journey starts in a car on the ever expanding ROAD. The moving car becomes a temporary home away from the real home which never is anymore.The ROAD however becomes a ROAD of lies and betreyal.Both the characters are seeking freedom.Is it escape from REALITY?Or is it only a DREAM?

HELLO ARSI delves into these themes and tries to see a new meaning through the inner reflections of these characters.
