Runanubandha (The HE without HIM) by Amartya Bhattacharyya has been officially selected as one of the three Indian films in the International Competition at the prestigious 24th Kolkata International Film Festival 2018.
The film features first-time actor Priyanka Ghosh Roy as the protagonist character around which the film revolves. Swastik Choudhury of Swastik Arthouse, who is also the producer of the film, plays a very interesting character. Susant Misra plays a short cameo.
The music of the film is scored by Kisaloy Roy, and the renowned Rockstar Rupam Islam (of Bangla Rock band Fossils) sings the title song. The film is shot in Kolkata and it captures some essential characteristics of the city in a unique way. Amartya has written, directed, captured and edited the film himself. The sound is designed by Sujoy Das of Filmstop Entertainment.
This film is the third feature film of national award winner Amartya Bhattacharyya, who has earlier made two Odia films - Capital I and Khyanikaa (The Lost Idea), both critically acclaimed at various international film festivals around the world.
However, 'Runanubandha' is his first feature film in his mother tongue.
