National-award winning director Srijit Mukherjee's upcoming film Nirbaak, starring Sushmita Sen, is all set to release on May 1.
"Nirbaak will be released on May 1. It is Sushmita's debut in Bengali cinema," Srijit said.
Nirbaak is a hyperlink narrative comprising four love stories connected by a single woman, played by Sen.
Every love story comprises one entity which is silent and thus Nirbaak (Speechless), Srijit explained.
The film celebrates the kind of love which transcends human language, exploring the most celebrated human themes of love, lust, jealousy, affection and separation within the natural elements around us.
Mukherji, who recently won the National Award for best director for Chatushkone, says that he referred to Academy Award-winning sound designer Resul Pookutty's autobiography Sounding Off while working on his new Bengali film, Nirbaak (Speechless).
"Nirbaak deals with the unspoken nature of love, so I was trying to make a tree, a city and a dog communicate through sound. I have picked up points from Resul's autobiography and have tried to use it in Nirbaak," says the director of Jaatiswar, who met the Oscar-winner at a Kolkata event on Monday.
Nirbaak also stars Jisshu Sengupta, Anjan Dutt and Ritwik Chakraborty.
