The movie Pankh is directed by Sudipto Chattopadhyay.The movie is set to release today on 2nd April in all the leading theatres of the country.It will be interesting to see the audience response towards the film's unique concept of 'homosexuality'.
'PANKH' STARRING  Bipasha Basu with debutant Maradona Rebello along with an experianced star cast of Mahesh Manjrekar and Lillette Dubey is set to experiment an all together different subject which seperates itself from mainstream cinema.
The story is about the life of a boy, who turns homosexual because of several problems he faced in childhood, the role is played by Maradona, who is a talented new comer. The boy's life is showcased in a bizarre and weird way. The movie seeks to explore the reasons which lead to the formation of dreams.
Maradona Rebello is in a complex role. He is casted opposite Bollywood actor Bipasha Basu, other actors like Ronit Roy, Sanjeeda Sheikh and newcomer Amit Purohit are also playing important roles in the movie.
The plot develops in a manner which forces Maradona to become a girl. His disturbed childhood makes him mentally unstable. His life is ruined to an extent that he seeks an escapade in behaving like a girl. As a part of his new feminine avtar he starts wearing girl's clothes, a wig, puts on make-up.
Pankh is about a boy (Maradona Rebello) who carries the burden of lost sexual identity which is suggestive of his name in the movie as 'Jerry'. With time as he crosses his youth, he is puzzled about his real sexual identity.
Jerry meets a girl, Nandini (Bipasha), and he starts loving her but he is totally confused about his sexual identity. Jerry starts getting urged by Nandini in his dreams and gets questioned about his sexuality. He sees her as someone who questions his identity and encourages him to be a man.
Ultimately, Jerry recreates his looks and expression into a boy.
The film reaches a climax at this point and reveals what happens to him after he changes his identity for Nandani.
Pankh's approach is to look at a complicatd network of relationships i.e. the Oedipal, the homosexual, the abusive. The film focuses on various aspects in a homosexual's life which include the societal space, the mind space, the sexual space and the spiritual space.
The movie Pankh is directed by Sudipto Chattopadhyay. The movie is set to release today on 2nd April in all the leading theatres of the country. It will be interesting to see the audience response towards this unique concept.
Pankh's songs, pictures and videos are available on various websites.
