Partition has always been a traumatic and the biggest tragedy for both the countries India & Bangladesh and chronicles the most tumultuous times in the history, which brought pain, tragedy and loss. What’s broken is broken, and National Award winning Director Gautam Ghose film ‘”Sankhachil” reflects the same in this partition themed film, jointly produced by India & Bangladesh. “Sankhachil,” shot on either sides of the border, is Ghosh’s third Indo-Bangla production.
“Sankhachil” which recently won the National Award, portrays the angst of the people living near the Indo-Bangladesh border, starring Bengali superstar Prosenjit and Bangladeshi actress Kusum. Gautam Ghose has always been inspired by Ritwik Ghatak, whose partition themed films have left a mark on him. He believes that partition always brought forth the raw wounds on the psyche of affected people, on either side of the border.
