Deep6 directed by Madhuja Mukherjee and produced by Shoojit Sircar will have its world premiere at the 26th Busan International Film Festival (BIFF). The festival will take place from October 6 to 15, 2021. 

Deep6 is set in Kolkata in 2011. The film stars Tillotama Shome along with Chandan Roy Sanyal, Sumeet Thakur, Maya Ghosh, Sumanta Mukherjee and late actor Soumitra Chatterjee. It will be screened under the ‘A Window on Asian Cinema’ section at BIFF. 

Shoojit Sircar, who has produced the film with Ronnie Lahiri under their banner Rising Sun Pvt Ltd, said, “I am absolutely elated and honored to have Deep6 premiere globally at the Busan Film festival, along with other luminary Indian and Asian cinema. I have known Madhuja for many years and it’s been a privilege to work with her and my close personal friend Avik Mukhopadhyay on this unique film.”

Director Madhuja describes the film as a “battleground of love, death, despair and desire”. Tillotama stars as Mitul, an ordinary woman striving for change. 

"Amongst the many Kolkata chronicles, this is my story -- told from a woman’s point of view," Madhuja shared. "At one level, it is a straightforward narrative about us – women – who shared a political dream and endured the intellectual big brothers; at another level, it progressively became an account about collective wants, dilemmas, oversights, vulnerabilities and the city neighbourhoods. It was a great experience teaming up with Shoojit and Ronnie for this film, looking forward to the premiere."
