Dilkhush is the story of fulfilling one's desire: Filmmaker Rahool Mukherjee

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 19 Jan 2023, 11:48 am

Filmmaker Rahool Mukherjee is bringing some fresh air of love through his upcoming Bengali romantic film Dilkhush, an SVF production, which comprises an ensemble cast. Ahead of the release, IBNS correspondent Souvik Ghosh catches up with Mukherjee


Q. What was your thought process behind making yet another complete romantic film?

A. Whenever I make a film, I try to ensure my audience gets the courage to express their unspoken thoughts easily after watching it. It is very important for me. Somehow I feel we all are forgetting to value our relationships in the present socio-economic situation post pandemic. We tend to blame one another easily. We should realise that time is the only villain in our life and nothing else. The world will be more beautiful if we can love each other.

Q. The film also sends a social message as two aged people were also shown falling in love.

A. I won't call it a social message. In our society, we have categorised our relationships and created taboos. Emotion and love are not binding to anything. Living with fulfilment is very important. Dilkhush is the story of fulfilling one's desire.

Q. How do you define your life?

A. I believe there are three women in our lives. The first woman is hope, the second is attachment and the third is peace. People get to the parallel universe when one experiences the ultimate peace. I believe a lot in the parallel universe which is also shown in the Dilkhush trailer.

Q. How was your experience of working with four on-screen couples in the same film?

A. It was fantastic and funny. I am in no position to judge Kharaj-da (Kharaj Mukherjee, veteran actor) and Paran-da (Paran Bandyopadhyay, veteran actor) but all eight actors were so good on the set.

Q. Did you cast young actors for young characters purposefully unlike casting Dev in Kishmish?

A. In Kishmish, I felt Dev would be appropriate to fit into three different ages. I have learnt from Dev-da and other seniors on how to give opportunities and breaks to newcomers after getting a certain personal recognition.
