Mumbai/Kolkata/IBNS: The teaser of Raima Sen and Abhishek Singh starrer Maa Kaali, which refers to the 1946 Calcutta Killings, was unveiled by the makers on Thursday.

The makers dropped the teaser for the film, taking the audience back to the bloodied and mournful event of Direct Action Day, revealing the brutalities of the massacre subjected to Hindus in Bengal and how the fire of partition of India was spread from Bengal to the entire British India.

Releasing this year, marking the 78th year of the unfortunate event, Maa Kaali pays a homage to the lives sacrificed in the ruthless genocide and uncovers the conspiracy of divide, riots and politics that led to the biggest human crisis of the 20th century and how its after effects are still still felt to the day and the continued suffering.

Presenting the truth through the lens of a Hindu family reliving the atrocities of the monstrous tragedy, the teaser sheds light on the motive, process and aftermath of the demand for partition of India.

Depicting the communal turmoil in the Nation and especially in Bengal, the teaser engages the audience with its compelling storyline, impactful dialogues and poignant visuals. From wiping the tikka off little Hindu girls’ foreheads to crashing the idol of Maa Kaali, the scenes are sure to be etched in the audience’s minds.

Raima Sen shares, "Being a Bengali, the story deeply resonates with the atrocities our people faced in the massacre.

"However, despite being a Bengali, even I was unaware of many details of the heart-rendering event, hence when this film came to me,  it became a moral responsibility to narrate the truth of the Direct Action Day."

IAS turned actor Abhishek Singh shares, "Maa Kaali shares the ordeal of one of the most important and relevant events of our history, yet the details of the monstrous tragedy stay unknown till date. With the film we aim to create awareness of the genocide that shook the nation."

Written and directed by Vijay Yelakanti, Maa Kaali is produced by TG Vishwa Prasad, co-produced by Vivek Kuchibhotla and presented by makers of Karthikeya 

The pan-Indian film shot in Hindi and will release in Bengali and Telugu as well in theatres in 2024.
