MANOJ BAJPAYEE HOSTS A SPECIAL SCREENING OF HIS UPCOMING FILM RUKH
Manoj Bajpayee recently hosted a special screening of his upcoming ﬁlm Rukh which is written and directed by debutant ﬁlmmaker Atanu Mukherjee and presented by Eros International and Drishyam Films. This is the second collaboration of Eros International and Drishyam Films after the much acclaimed ﬁlm “Newton”.
Rukh is the story of Dhruv (Adarsh Gourav), an 18 year old boy who is away from home in a boarding school and ignorant about the ongoing crisis in his family. His life takes an unexpected turn as he gets the news of his father’s death in a car accident. As he copes with the tragedy, many hidden truths begin to unravel.
Rukh was a part of the inaugural Drishyam – Sundance Institute Screenwriters Labs 2015 and is the ﬁrst script to be chosen from the lab.
The screening of the ﬁlm which was held at Sunny Super Sound in Juhu, Mumbai was attended by producer Manish Mundra and actors Adarsh Gourav, Smita Tambe and Kumud Mishra who play pivotal parts in the ﬁlm. Also present at the screening were actor-producer Sanjay Suri and Amit Masurkar who had directed the much acclaimed Newton which was the previous collaboration of Eros International and Drishyam Films.
According to Actor Manoj Bajpayee, “This ﬁlm is close to me because I love the manner in which Atanu has woven the scenes and narrated the story. It has intrigue, suspense and to top it all there is a father and son relationship which is the backbone of the ﬁlm. The way in which Atanu has depicted the father and son relationship makes the ﬁlm all the more remarkable.”
Manish Mundra, the founder of Drishyam Films and producer of Rukhsaid, “Rukh is the ﬁrst script which we picked from the Drishyam-Sundance Screenwriters Lab. We loved the script and decided to produce it. We are looking forward to the audience reaction towards the ﬁlm.”
Director Atanu Mukherjee says “This is ﬁrst time we are showing the ﬁlm to the public and I am really curious and excited. I hope people will like it.”
Actor Smita Tambe said “We have worked very hard on the ﬁlm and ﬁnally now it is the time to show it to the audiences. I am really eager and excited to see how the audience will react to the ﬁlm.”
Actor Kumud Mishra said “I enjoyed working on the ﬁlm. We have put our best foot forward while making the ﬁlm. Now it remains to be seen how audiences respond to it.”
Director Amit Masurkar said “Rukh is an introspective, sensitive and suspenseful story about loss and growing up which is narrated with a very subtle and unassuming tone.”
Rukh, which is presented by Eros International and Drishyam Films released across India on October 27th, 2017.
I congratulate Manoj Bajpayee, Atanu Mukerjee, Smita Tambe, Kumud Mishra, Manish Mudra of Drisyham Films, Adarsh Gaurav and Eros International for making excellent ﬁlm like “Rukh”. I also wish great success of the ﬁlm and international acclaim.
