Ollywood’s leading cine production house ‘Tarang Cine Productions’ is all set to woo Odia movie lovers with its upcoming flick ‘Pushkara’, starring Sabyasachi Mishra and Supriya in the lead. On Monday, the makers dropped the first look of the movie and the characters.

Pushkara is based on Odia Novel 'Nadabindu’ written by eminent writer Sankar Tripathy. This movie marks the directorial debut of DOP-turned-director Subhranshu Das.

With this movie, the entire team has made an attempt to give a glance into different waning traditional rituals and cultures of Odisha. Apart from that, the makers have also shed light on different ancestral occupations practiced since ages but are currently disappearing in modern culture.

The makers as well as actors are quite hopeful about the project as the storyline is original.
“Pushkara, it is not just a cinema, this is a story of a character that is raised in Odisha’s environment, tradition and culture. We have been working on this project since one year. Before and after shooting, I am still living the character with its adopted look. For the first time in my career, I’ve played such an amazing and unconventional character,” said actor Sabyasachi Mishra.

Further, the actor went on to add, “The uniqueness of this project is characterising different ancestral occupations. The character is called Pushkara.”

“This is the first attempt of Tarang Cine Productions to make a movie adopting from Odia literature. We have given around one year for this movie. The entire shooting is done in Puri. The protagonist of the movie is a character who lives practicing the traditional rituals, that are disappearing with time,” said Ranjan Satpathy, Creative Head, OTV Network.

“It’s a romantic tale. We are hopeful that the audience will love it. The movie will hit the theatres in 2023,” he added.  

Produced under the Tarang Cine Production banner, Pushkar is the 44th project of the production house. Apart from Sabyasachi and Supriya, several other eminent actors including Asrumochan Mohanty and Choudhury Bikash Das  will also have a crucial role in the movie in different characters.
