Feb 10, 2012 (Databazaar Media Ventures) Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury is a
recognised filmmaker who stretches the borders of celluloid
representations differently. His first two films, namely Anuranan and
Antaheen were based on his own stories. His third, Aparajita Tumi is the
celluloid adaptation of Sunil Gangopadhyay’s Dui Nari Haatey Torobari.
The film has been acquired by Databazaar Media for North America and
Canada for screening, distribution, exhibition and streaming. What makes
him think out-of-the-box films that are widely accepted by the
audience? Let him do the talking.

What attracted you to Sunil Ganguly's story while you were looking through subjects and stories for your new film?
the last few years, I had been travelling to the US off and on quite
frequently. I saw the glamour and the glitz, the beauty and the
affluence within which people live. But I also saw the invisible lines
between the glamour and the glitz that spelt out a story of loneliness,
of living in a kind of emotional vacuum. I had read Sunil-da’s story
four years ago and I found the characters very familiar. I discovered
that they were timeless and universal. The story brings to life some
lines of the poet Rumi that says, “Beyond right and wrong” and found it
to be very real and true to life. So I decided to make the film.
Are you saying that relationships beyond the parameters of social sanction should not be judged on their values?
