Say the makers of the film: "Pritha lived in her own world…..a world of voices and visions…..which no one could comprehend. This world of her had different sounds…visuals…murmurs….it was her very own private space.

The Film Voices….murmurs of the mind echoes Pritha’s mental space, desires and dreams….which were not understood or appreciated by others…..they remained unreal…unstatiated.
Hers was a lonely existence…in her very own world."

Voices is written by Kaberi Roy Chowdhury and directed by Abhishek Ganguli (chief of Learning System). The credited star cast includes Madhumita Chakraborty, Tanima Biswas, Rajyosree  Chatterjee, Anjan  Bannerjee and Dr. Indra Kamal Mazumder.
