Critically acclaimed Odia movie Adieu Godard to stream at AAO NXT on Oct 4


Odia movie Adieu Godard which released in cinema halls across the state on September 2 last year is ready to attract digital audience as the movie is ready to be streamed at AAO N XT OTT platform on October 4.

After being lauded at several film festivals and winning accolades across the globe, Odia movie Adieu Godard, directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Amartya Bhattacharyya will be available at AAO Nxt for the audience.

Adieu Godard is a socio-cultural tribute to the legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard. The film is based on an old man, Ananda, who is a pornography addict. He secretly watches pornography with some friends in a conservative Indian village.

One day, they come across Godard’s film that was mistakenly rented as pornography. Though his friends were disgusted, Ananda gets attracted to Godard’s film and gradually develops an obsession. He initiates the idea of hosting a film festival in their village where Godard’s films will be screened. The festival gets organised after a lot of drama.

Written and directed by Amartya, the film is an Indo-French co-production. Adieu Godard features Choudhury Bikas Das, Dipanwit Dashmohapatra, Sudharsri Madhusmita, Swastik Choudhury, Choudhury Jayaprakash Das, Shankar Basu Mallick and Abhishek Giri. Talking about the film, Amartya said, “This film is simple and enjoyable and yet it has a lot of impacts. I chose to make this film in Odia and shot this in Odisha because the contrast works socially.

Rural Odisha is by-and-large conservative, and old men watching pornography secretly in rural Odisha create that context in which the film is set. Also, the indigenous culture in Odisha villages makes the French new wave auteur Jean Luc Godard an alien subject to the villagers, which is the trigger of all senses of humour. I’m sure this film will touch every viewer irrespective of their language, age and taste. It is a very entertaining film.”
