The release date for the film ‘Fairy Folk,’ starring Rasika Dugal, has been finalized. It is scheduled to hit theaters on March 1. Directed by Karan Gour, ‘Fairy Folk’ delves into the intricacies of human relationships.
Reflecting on her experience working on the film, Rasika expressed, “Working on an improvised film is an actor’s delight. This style of shooting gave us the room to explore the many odd things that people do and say when they find themselves in unprecedented situations….the beautiful oddities that sometimes get lost in the need to write a ‘logical’ script. It was so much fun to play off skilled improvisers. This is the kind of film which is a must-have in the life of an actor.”
In ‘Fairy Folk,’ Rasika shares screen space with her husband and actor Mukul Chadda. Mukul also shared his thoughts on the project, stating, “The movie is hugely different from any other I’ve worked on. First, in terms of its narrative which brilliantly uses magical realism to tell a very grounded story of relationships and desire that is both funny and tragic. And second, Karan’s improvised way of filmmaking made it both challenging and fun to work on this. I wish more films are made like this.”
‘Fairy Folk’ has previously been showcased at esteemed film festivals including the Sydney Film Festival, the Chicago International Film Festival, MAMI (Mumbai), and the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne. The film’s background score is composed by Karan Gour, known for his work in projects such as ‘Titli,’ ‘Haraamkhor,’ ‘Dear Dad,’ and ‘Agra.’
