Bhubaneswar:4/1/23:Ollywood’s leading cine production house ‘Tarang Cine Productions’ is all set to woo Odia movie lovers with its upcoming flick ‘Pushkara’, starring Sabyasachi Mishra and Supriya in the lead. On Monday, the makers dropped the first look at the movie and the characters.
Pushkara is based on Odia’s Novel Nadabindu’ written by eminent writer Sankar Tripathy. This movie marks the directorial debut of DOP-turned-director Subhranshu Das.
With this movie, the entire team has made an attempt to give a glance into different waning traditional rituals and cultures of Odisha. Apart from that, the makers have also shed light on different ancestral occupations practiced for ages but are currently disappearing in modern culture. The makers as well as actors are quite hopeful about the project as the storyline is original.
Pushkar movie based on Pushkar concept. Usually, on Tuesday, or Saturday when someone dies, there is a custom in Odisha that Pushkar is installed in his house. One-foot push, two-foot push, and three-foot push are done like this. There are different remedial measures according to Pushkar. Those who get three feet of Pushkar in the house are asked to leave the house instead of staying at home.
“Pushkara” is not just a cinema, this is a story of a character that is raised in Odisha’s environment, tradition, and culture. We have been working on this project since one year. Before and after shooting, I am still living the character with its adopted look. For the first time in my career, I’ve played such an amazing and unconventional character,” said actor Sabyasachi Mishra.
