Ganesh Puja is on 29 August 2014 and Ollywood is ready to release 3 Odia films of different genres on this special occasion.
Sarthak’s ‘Lekhu Lekhu Lekhideli’ starring Babushan-Jhilik, ‘Ame Ta Toka Sandha Marka’ starring Papu Pam Pam and Koyel Banerjee and ‘Bhaunri’ starring Arindam-Bidita are the movies.
After being paired in the immensely successful film ‘Akhire Akhire’, the trio of director Susant Mani and lead pair of Babushan and Jhilik are back with Lekhu Lekhu Lekhideli.
Ame Ta Toka Sandha Marka, scripted by comedian Tatwa Prakash Satpathy, better known as Papu Pom Pom, is based on the life and times of warrior clan Paika from the traditional Akhadas of Khurda. “I have taken two months training to get into the skin of the character. The film is purely Odia in its feel and essence,” said Papu.
The trailer of Bhaunri has created a lot of buzz among movie lovers. Shot in the scenic landscapes of Odisha, the film is a long shot from the usual commercial flicks. “The script is an original one. Since audience wants to watch original ideas, directors are taking initiatives,” said Arindam, who is known for doing larger than life movies.
