Following the success of his two previous Hindi feature films, ‘Sooper Se Ooper’ and ‘Chowky,’ Shekhar Ghosh is now set to release his first Bengali film, Syndicate, a crime thriller starring Shaheb Bhattacherjee, Sauraseni Maitra, Shantilal Mukherjee, Sudip Mukherjee, Chandan Sen, Prantik Banerjee, and Pratiksha Sen.
“I chose a broadly appealing subject for this picture,” Shekhar continues. “It’s a crime thriller centred on a news syndicate rather than on locally entrenched issues.” Sauraseni portrays Pakhi Roy, a young, ethical journalist who finds herself in peril due to her tenacity in chasing the truth. The storey begins with her disappearance and unfolds like an onion peel.
The film and its characters are all painted in various shades of grey, and our goal was to push the boundaries of contemporary cinematic technology in order to provide an enjoyable experience unlike any other.
