Sudeep Kanwal, the talented writer and director, has just released the first teaser of his upcoming film ‘Privacy.’ The intriguing glimpse introduces Rajshri Deshpande, who portrays a voyeur in this dark social thriller set in the slums of Mumbai. The teaser is captivating, hinting at an enthralling cinematic experience that delves into the idea that surveillance cameras capture more than just public spaces.
‘Privacy’ is a hard-hitting thriller that centers around a distressed operator in a surveillance center in Mumbai. As she witnesses unusual events unfolding on her watch, she embarks on an investigation that unravels a complex web of secrets. The film is scheduled to have its world premiere at the 27th edition of the Bucheon International Film Festival (BiFan), recognized as Asia’s largest genre cinema event.
Filmmaker Sudeep Kanwal shared his approach to the screenplay, emphasizing his desire to maintain a realistic tone in ‘Privacy’ rather than veering towards a techno-noir style. The focus lies on the characters rather than the technology itself. The filmmakers intentionally grounded the film’s visual elements, such as the control room design, makeup, and costumes, to enhance authenticity. They actively sought out real locations whenever possible and encouraged the actors to immerse themselves in the lives of individuals with similar lifestyles and professions as their characters.
Rajshri Deshpande, who portrays the character Roopali, described her experience as an emotional roller coaster. The collaboration between Sudeep and Rajshri aimed to deliver nuanced performances, recognizing that the film relies heavily on visuals with minimal dialogue. Attentive viewers can catch subtle elements in ‘Privacy,’ which add layers of depth to Roopali’s character.
‘Privacy’ is a production by Fundamental Picture’s Navin Shetty and Shlok Sharma in association with House of Talent Studio. Following the tremendous success of her Netflix Original, ‘Trial By Fire,’ Rajshri Deshpande returns with another remarkable performance in ‘Privacy.’ The film also features a talented ensemble cast including Nishank Verma, Sandesh Kulkarni, Abhilash Thapliyal, Saurabh Goyal, Chhaya Kadam, Rushad Rana, and Sagar Salunke in pivotal roles.
