Gift Box deals with Locked-in Syndrome
Gift Box is writer-director Raghu SP’s second film after Pallattta
After Gentleman, Gift Box will be yet another film to deal with a rare disorder and human trafficking. This is writer-director Raghu SP’s second film after Pallattta. Gift Box is a psychological thriller that explores a neurological disorder called Locked-in syndrome, where the patient’s body is not active, and only her brain works. The patient is aware of what’s happening in and around her, but will not be able to react to situations, and can communicate only through eyes.
The story also portrays the struggles and challenges that come with trying to live with the disorder, says Raghu, adding, “Gift Box also shows a human trafficker and his psychology, as well the struggles of someone to come out of the trafficking network.”
The film, made by HalliChitra production, is set to be released on February 14. It stars Ameesha Kulal, Ritvikk Mathad, and Deeptii Mohan in the lead roles. Singer Vasu Dixit has composed the music while Raghavendra MB is the film’s DOP.
