ZEE5 has announced Posham Pa, a psychological thriller starring Mahie Gill, Sayani Gupta and Ragini Khanna in a never-seen-before avatar. Directed by National Award-winning filmmaker Suman Mukhopadhyay, written by Nimisha Misra and produced by Ten Years Younger Productions LLP, Dhirajj Walks of Art Pvt Ltd, New Born Films LLP and Vishant Audio Visuals Pvt Ltd Posham Pa releases on August 21.
Posham Pa is inspired by true events, researched by senior journalist, Praful Shah. The story revolves around a psychologically disturbed mother who coerced her daughters into a life of crime. The daughters are now facing the death penalty for their violent crimes and spieling their life story to two documentarians essayed by Imaad Shah and Shivani Raghuvanshi.
Mahie Gill said, “The story of Posham Pa is inexplicable. I still cannot fathom how circumstances can make someone so cruel. It is one of the most challenging roles I have essayed”
Sayani Gupta said, “It has been a very difficult journey to get under the skin of my character. Right from my look to the brutality of the murders, it has all been mind-numbing. Getting into the psyche of a criminal drains you physically and emotionally.”
Sharing her thoughts Ragini Khanna said, “It was a tough shoot and an experience which I will carry with me forever. It is an exciting time for new stories and content to flourish.”
Director Suman Mukhopadhyay said, “We are presenting a film that has multiple focal points. Truth and reality look so puzzling when seen from different perspectives. The script brings this out through a nonlinear treatment. However, the actors have walked a distance to ensure their performance is power-packed. To portray the psychological labyrinth of the characters that travel a few decades is an immensely challenging task.”
Commenting on the announcement, Aparna Acharekar, Programming Head, ZEE5 India said, “It is an offbeat story and we have got on board powerful actors who are perfectly suited for their respective roles. Posham Pa is currently in the post-production stage and we are looking forward to releasing it on our platform soon."
