Kolkata/IBNS: The social thriller short film, 'Every 68 Minutes', directed by Anindita Sarbadhicari, conceptualised by Lal Bhatia and Imran Zaki, and produced by David and Goliath Films, in association with Adil Hussain, was premiered here Kolkata on Mar 3.

Richa Sharma, Adil Hussain, and Tota Roy Choudhury are the leading actors of the movie.

Dealing with the harsh realities of dowry and domestic violence that reportedly takes the life of one woman every sixty-eight minutes, the film hopes to take the audience to new realizations and bring about a positive change in our society.

This film, which has been presented by David and Goliath Films, showcases the reality of the tormented times a woman goes through because of dowry.

The film has been conceptualised by Lal Bhatia and Imran Zaki of David and Goliath Films in denunciation of the social evils that women are being put through even today.

The music was given by Bickram Ghosh. The cinematography of Manas Ganguly and the crisp editing of Arghyakamal Mitra are other highlights of the film.

The film also features Bharat Kaul, Arup Ratan Roy, Laboni Sarkar, Chandan Sen and Titas Dutta.

“If you disrespect me once shame on you and if you disrespect me twice shame on me," said Richa when asked what lesson she learnt while making the film.

“Film is based on a strong subject where the seed comes from the girl and the reality portrayed is what we want to change," commented Anindita.
