‘Memories In March’ is the debut directorial venture of Sanjay Nag starring ace Bengali filmmaker Rituparno Ghosh, Tollywood actress Raima Sen, and Bollywood actress Deepti Naval.
Produced by Shree Venkatesh Films, the drama depicts an emotional archiving of a bereaved mother of fifty, who after an accidental death of her 28-year-old son, comes to Kolkata to carry out his last rituals, pack and carry his belongings back to Delhi. Her three-day stay in Kolkata in her dead son’s office-apartment, laden with memories and her constant interaction with his office colleagues (his only family in the city), makes her realize that the ownership of her son’s belongings, tangible or otherwise, which she claimed to be exclusively personal, is actually ubiquitous, distributed among all his friends and acquaintances. So much so that it can’t be packed and moved away. She also realizesthat her own presence in the midst of these unfamiliar people, the fact that she has inhabited their hearts and thoughts much before destiny brought them together.
The cinematography is by Soumik Halder and music is by Debojyoti Mishra.
