Odia feature film WHISPERS OF A STORM to world premiere at 25th UK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL

Bhubaneswar:13/4/23:The film is set in the devastated coastal villages of Odisha after cyclone Fani. A photographer, in greed of success, captures the devastation. He is indifferent to the suffering of people, and is focused only on the benefits he can extract out of the calamity. A villager, who happened to return from the rescue camp after the cyclone, finds his home shattered. He picks up his memories from the ruins and tries to carry them along, in a hope of reaching a safer land. Another young character Daya, a devotee of God, tries to explain to people that it’s all God’s will and they must not cry. He encourages people to laugh and goes on to an extreme when an elderly man refuses to laugh. On the other hand, a lady who lost her son to the cyclone leaves her village and finds solace in nature. These characters, apparently independent of each other, find relevance and relation in the context of their losses.
The film is directed by Amartya Bhattacharyya and produced by Swastik Choudhury under the banner of Swastik Arthouse, in association with Dr U T Rao and Filmstop Entertainment.  As in all his films, Amartya is the writer, cinematographer, and editor as well. The lead roles are played by Dipanwit Dashmohapatra, Swastik Choudhury, Priyanka Ghosh Roy and Radha Krushna. The music is scored by Kisaloy Roy and sound design by Sujoy Das.
