The first look poster seems to beautifully capture the life of a regular college theater group with glimpses from their college life and how theater played a huge part in it. It also promises an authentic insight into the ‘city of joy’, Kolkata from the first look.
The film presented by Soumyajit Majumdar Collaborations and is a Lok Production. #Homecoming was also selected for South Asia’s largest film market collection, NFDC Lab in 2019. The film boasts of a multi award winning crew.
Speaking of the film, director Soumyajit said, “The indomitable spirit of a dream team with the best of talents from Bollywood and Tollywood as part of an ensemble of more than 30 actors, a national and international award winning crew is the driving force behind making my first film #Homecoming. This musical was a lifetime experience for all of us. The love and passion of the misfits towards the film will reflect on screen. Reunions, friendships and comebacks have found a home in #Homecoming”.
Adding to his thoughts, Sayani Gupta said, “#Homecoming is truly special for many reasons…working in Kolkata finally…working with old friends and making some new ones. Soumyajit is a force to reckon with and I am so happy I could be part of his debut film. This film has been made with immense love and undeniable passion…and I hope it’s able to reach as many people as possible. I play Sri…Sri is love. She is the woman you cannot look past and get over. You will know what I mean when you watch the film.”
Plabita Borthakur added, “It was special working on this film because of the cast and crew, so many amazing actors coming together. It was also my first shoot in Kolkata, one of my favorite cities. I love the spirit of the film and the filmmakers. I was excited about it since I read the script and when it all came together it was beautiful. I love my character Nargis, she’s a lot like me. I was a little nervous about the poetry bit though”.
