Kaushik Ganguly”s ”Lokkkhi Chhele” premieres at South African film festival

Kolkata, Apr 16 (PTI) Multiple national award-winning
filmmaker Kaushik Ganguly”s ”Lokkkhi Chhele” (An Angels Kiss)
has been screened at the South African International Film
Festival RapidLion, marking its world premiere during the
COVID-19 time, the director said on Friday.

At RapidLion, filmmakers from Africa, the BRICS
countries (Brazil, Russia, India China and South Africa) and
of African diaspora showcase their works.

Ganguly said, “RapidLion is a prestigious film
festival and the screening of our film is a big
acknowledgement for Lokkhi Chhele. International filmmakers
watched our movie at the festival, and I am looking forward to
get their response.”

The film is based on a real-life incident in which a
young doctor fights against blind religious beliefs.

“Lokkhi Chhele tells the story of unconditional love
and compassion in a dark hour of disillusionment, where, in
the end, the only religion that stands steadfast, strong and
undefeated is humanity,” the ”Jyeshthoputro” director said.

He regretted that the film made in 2020 could not be
released on time because of COVID-19.

“I think ours is the only film from India which was
selected for the festival. It”s a big achievement for Team
Lokkhi Chhele but I will always feel bad as I couldn”t go
there on this occasion,” he said.

The film was screened at the Market Theatre,
Johannesburg, on April 11 but due to the prevailing COVID-19
situation, the director, cast and production team could not
attend it physically.

“We got feedback that the film got an encouraging
response there. Now we are eagerly waiting when it can be
released in the country,” the producers of the film and fellow
directors Shiboprasad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy said in a
statement. PTI SUS SBN
