Bengali film Switzerland will release on November 13, on the occasion of Diwali, the makers of the film announced on Twitter.
Grassroot Entertainment’s post read: “Friday the 13th, na na Bhoy paben na (Friday the 13th, no no don’t get scared). It’s time to break the stereotype. A Friday is the most exciting day of the week for all cine lovers, cine goers jara bhalo golpo dekhte bhalobashe (cine goers who love watching good stories). Asche amader cinema a slice of life and a complete family entertainer Switzerland.”
Directed by Sauvik Kundu, the film features Abir Chatterjee and Rukmini Maitra in lead roles. The story revolves around a middle-class family from Kolkata and their dream to vacation in Switzerland. While trying to achieve this dream, Shibu (played by Chatterjee) lands into trouble and the family go through a roller-coaster ride of emotions to ensure that their trip materialises.
Speaking to The Times of India, Chatterjee said: “The protagonist is a middle-class guy; has a happy family. He is sweet, cute and has an impish side to him also. He is a very regular guy. I was impressed by his values. That appealed to me. Shibu (short for Shibashish) and Rumi represent the archetypical middle-class family. They have the basic values intact. They are happy with whatever they have. Sometimes there are temptations but they come out of it. Sometimes there are misunderstandings and struggles. At the end of the day their bond is very tight. There is a Shibashish and a Shibu – and we get to see both sides. Shibashish has his aspirations. Shibu is the middle-class guy. He is a hero because he knows what is right, and he will fight for it. He will do anything to uphold the values. This guy is very sweetly romantic. It is a very sweet film, and may remind you of films like Yes Boss.”
The film is produced by Jeet under the banner Jeetz Filmworks, Gopal Madnani and Amit Jumrani.
The trailer of the film released on October 23.
