Pratikshya to release again in cinema halls



Bhubaneswar: National award winning Odia movie Pratikshya will released again in selected cinema halls after repeated request from fans

Director Anupam Patnaik informed ” Let’s make some noise again! After all the love and adulation…and repeated requests, We are thrilled to announce the Re-Release of National Award Winning Film “Pratikshya” in select theatres! So those who have missed it, here’s the chance! Those who want to watch it again, here’s the chance! Those who don’t want to watch, also…here is the chance!”

He added “The dates will be out in few days! Releasing this February”

The movie had already completed 50 days in cinema halls when it was released last year.

Inspired by a short story by writer Gourahari Das, Pratikshya is the story of Sanjay, a boy from a middle-class family who is on the lookout for a government job, a few months before his father retires.

His father, Bipin, is insistent that he find a job, as the family has debts, and Bipin is also diagnosed with a terminal illness. Sanjay learns about the government’s scheme of compassionate appointment where a family member gets the job of the deceased government employee.

A frustrated Sanjay waits for his father’s death only to realise his disturbing mind. It is a film about family, especially about the complex relationships fathers and sons have.

Last year at International Film Festival of India (IFFI) actor Anupam Kher announced spontaneously that he will make Pratikshya in Hindi, where he will be playing the role of the father. He gave Patnaik a token signing amount for the rights of the film.

President Droupadi Murmu had awarded “Pratikshya” as the best Odia film the the 69th National Film Awards ceremony in October last year.
