Their films entertain as well as touch upon strong humane subjects that promise a pan India appeal. Haami too will strike a chord with the audiences with the very current and relevant subject that it addresses.”.
Director Shiboprosad Mukherje added, “We are pleased with the kind of support Eros has given to all our movies. Taking Bengali cinema beyond the regular territories motivates Nandita and me to make movies for a larger audience and we look forward to a continued partnership with them”
Haami is a story of two school friends, Bhutu and Chini, who come from completely different background. Bhutu’s parents, Laltu and Mitali are rich furniture-shop owners who are more into popular culture and Chini’s parents, Srinjoy and Rina are academicians – elite and sophisticated. Inspite these differences Bhutu and Chini are best friends. As luck would have it, a situation occurs, where the parents of these two children separate them and put an end to their friendship.
However, the young vice-principal cum student counsellor of their school, Arundhati tries to make them see reason, but will she succeed? Will the adults accept the playful innocence of the children?
A story that will take you down the memory lane of your childhood days of fun and friendship, Haami is releasing in 18th May 2018.
After their film, Ramdhanu that released in 2014, became a massive hit and touched their audiences with the very relatable storyline of a middle-class couple trying to get their son admitted in a reputed school, Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee decided to make a film on what happens after the child joins school. The story is inspired by the situation that we see around us every day of the growing mistrust between schools and parents. It was planned as a sequel where the lead pair Laltu and Mitali are now facing various situations because of their son’s antics at school.
