Debadrita’s upcoming short film deals with the reality of the LGBTQ community

‘Goodbye Beautiful’ is a path-breaking short film that portrays a Trans-woman as a Lead Cis-woman for the first time in Kolkata. The movie is selected for the official screening at the Dialogues – Calcutta LGBT film and video festival. The movie is directed by Debadrita Bose and no doubt this makes you question reality. Speaking about the movie, it deals with loneliness, negligence, show-offs, male chauvinists, lust, politics, and power play.
When asked about the film, the director said, “The story revolves around Mr. And Mrs. Das which are played by Shankar Chakraborty and Sudeb Suhana respectively. I first conceived the story keeping in mind Sudeb Suhana as my Mrs. Das in the movie. Then only I started my hunt for other character artists. I tried to portray here how powers have dominated a weaker section of the society since eternity. Making ‘Goodbye Beautiful’ was difficult not only because we wanted to cast a trans woman in a cis character.”
Apart from the director actress Kamalika Banerjee, who plays a key role in the movie, said, “Since the very beginning I was sure to be part of the movie. Apart from the strong storyline, the making of the movie itself throws a social message. We as a team went against the social boredom and dealt with a casting where a transgender plays the role of a lead Cis-woman. I am very proud of the movie.”
