What’s in the name? We often come across this phrase and we often wonder about the certain film titles which intrigue us and have deeper meaning. So the moment you come across a word like Falsafa the instant thought is you know it you have heard it many times but still not sure what it means. So how does such an intricate word became Director’s choice for the title of his very first film? “In this film we are dealing turmoil of human emotions centered on revenge and for me it kept on becoming difficult to blend it all under one title. More than revenge this film is about philosophy of it and hence Falsafa becomes the most apt title for it.” Says Himanshu Yadav.
A fairly new team with a cast that too doesn’t have much of a ground when it comes to films choose to bring on canvas a philosophical thriller and going by the trailer it does leaves the viewers dwelling on to many thoughts and questions. The lead actor Manit Joura says, “ I had to surrender my being to the script completely or else it would have been a half-baked effort. Roughly two months before the schedule of the film I abandoned my home and life in Mumbai and shifted to Delhi where the film was primarily based.” As we spoke to the team they all had their side of stories and how challenging and difficult it was making this film but looking at the final end product they all are immensely satisfied. But why should audience watch this film what is the differentiating factor “ The way revenge has been dealt on human grounds and not portrayed as larger than life phenomena will resonate with audience. Also the fact that it is a thriller will surely keep the audience guessing and make them stay till the end when they get to see the moment of truth, the philosophy that we all are talking about.”
Falsafa – The Other Side releases in theaters on 11th January 2019.
