What to expect from Pupa?
A relatable tale
Pupa's story is all about a perpetual conflict between the right and right. When a person has to choose between his comatose father, who has shown no sign of improvement and his life which is in the US where he works. It's a humane tale and the dilemma feels relatable. Not only it is the son's dilemma, the sudden changes in his life put people related to him in front of uncertainties.
The film features an ensemble cast that includes Rahul, Sudipta Chakraborty, and Kamaleswar Mukherjee. No wonder with such an acting line up, the audience will be expecting tremendous performances from the film. All the actors have enough character and now the wait is to see who is going to catch the viewers fancy the most.
Indrashish Acharya, the filmmaker has shown potential in his previous movie Bilu Rakkhosh. Like his first film, Pupa too gained great feedbacks in the festival circuit. The expectation is high from this filmmaker.
