Synopsis: An Innocent Student from a small town comes to a big city with big dreams. From The city that never sleeps, where equality is a priority, where women have sometimes more than an equal opportunity, comes this story of betrayal, and seduction, of an unforeseen outcome. In our new world of fairness, what happens when our pendulum of equality swings a bit too far in the other direction?
“I wrote this story “He Too” when I came to visit India, I heard “Me Too” was such a big statement. I was raised by saying “Me too” all the time, without any reason. After encountering and meeting some #lgbtq friends, and actually have a conversation and realizing how men feel and how majority don’t state anything because of the taboo, men are strong, slangs, silly. I do believe women abuse is still very prevalent all across the world and in villages. But I still did not feel it was fair for men to suffer because majority of the abuse has been women and kids. So I wrote a story, basic story, about abuse, some situations actually happened, so I used them in my story.
I felt the reason story must be told because we should look at each case individually and plus women with power abusing the system are downfall for women getting justice. So in all fairness I decided to experiment in my debut as writer and direct again. I believe in equality for all, even animals and non discriminatory environment. I believe in non discrimination between Race, Gender, Sex, Color, Caste, Creed. Compassion is a must in this world. I spend time focusing on that, and pray for world peace. I believe, “Love is Love” and love towards humans and animals and letting people live the way they want to is a must. Life is too short, who has seen tomorrow. So I focus of issues that I have encountered in my life and how I can improve them.
I wrote this film in 2018, 2019 end, when I was teaching Acting at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. One of my student act’s in the film as I needed a younger actor, Ishani Chakraborty. Of course, my team was fellow students I met at Esber College in Manhattan. Even though funding is always an issue, luckily I had saved enough for this film and my fellow actors were just willing to act. So I wrote, it took us a year and half of filming, due to time constraints and my constant visits to India for my movie, “Yadvi-The dignified Princess’ work. Finally, we are at the last stages of Post Production.
Filming is not easy and help is scarce. But in the end it is the hard work, perseverance that matters and a good product to your best ability. An experimental film.
This film is my first time as a writer. I hope to touch some people’s heart and maybe they can relate to such situations in their lives. It is a journey of any man or women, and what we all face it in today’s world in a different ways. Thank’s to everyone who contributed to this film and hopefully you all will like our work. Peace, Love, Light, Respect, & Unity. “
