Kolkata, 20th November 2019 – SVF & National Award-Winning director Srijit Mukherji’s most talked about film Gumnaami completed 50 acclaimed days today at the box office. The subject of the film has been a talking point for the entire country and has generated multiple debates and discussions across the nation. The Bengali version of Gumnaami is one of the top grossing Bengali films during the Festival period in October and has garnered plethora of acclaim from various populations of the audience.
The lead cast and crew of the film came together to celebrate this milestone with a cake cutting ceremony and spoke about the entire arduous journey of the film finally leading to the road of success.
Gumnaami is a film based on the Mukherjee Commission Hearings which happened from 1999 to 2005 where the three theories about Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s death were discussed and debated. It is a dramatization of the hearings where an investigative journalist supporting the ‘Gumnaami Baba theory’ locks horns with the official lawyer who supports the ‘plane-crash theory’. In their clash, the ‘Death in Russia theory’ also comes up.
Speaking about this achievement, director Srijit Mukherji said:” Gumnaami is a film very close to my heart because the subject of the film, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, is someone I worship as a Hero since my childhood. After many trials and tribulations, we could successfully bring the film to our audience and their sheer acceptance has helped us achieve this milestone!”
Talking about this success, Co-founder & Director SVF, Mahendra Soni said: “The support of our audience towards Gumnaami with open arms has been the reason why this film has reached such a milestone.
