Paresh Rawal's The Storyteller to premiere at Indian Film Festival of Melbourne

Actor Paresh Rawal's The Storyteller, the film based on Satyajit Ray's work, will have a premiere at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. 

The film recently had its premiere in Busan. It will be showcased at IFFM in August. Directed by Anant Narayan Mahadevan, the film is based on the legendary Satyajit Ray's short story Golpo Boliye Tarini Khuro and explores the themes of originality versus plagiarism. The film also stars Adil Hussain, Revathi, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Anindita Bose, and Jayesh More.

Paresh plays the role of Tarini Ranjan Bandhopadhyay in The Storyteller. He is an unconventional narrator, who has gained a reputation for his tendency to change professions, having transitioned between 32 jobs throughout his working life. At the age of 60, residing in Kolkata and widowed, Tarini's sole regret is his inability to fulfill his late wife Anuradha's long-standing wish for a vacation. With retirement now upon him and an abundance of free time, Tarini finds himself distanced from his loved ones. The film delves into the life of a prosperous entrepreneur who enlists the services of a storyteller to alleviate his insomnia.

In a statement, the actor said, "I am absolutely thrilled and delighted to be a part of the film which will be premiered in Australia. My experience was very enthralling and satisfying. This kind of story itself is a rarity and with the terrific bunch of talent as my co-artist is fulfilling. I am eternally grateful to my producers and my director mr Ananth Mahadevan ji".
