In his 26 year long career as director, Amol Palekar has made eleven films and is all set with his 12 th film Dumkata, which the director says is his tribute to Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chaterjee! Amol Palekar was an integral part of their genre of film and hence has decided to make a light hearted family film in the shape of Dumkata.
Says the director, "My fans have always asked me to make films similar to the legendary ones of Hrishida and Basu da, whose films I was an integral part of. Dumkata is that film, as we don't have enough films for children. They have to relish the Hollywood combos or second rate Indian attempts, I'm sure Dumkata will offer something original to our little ones!"
The story, screenplay and dialogues have been written by the writer of his last three films, Sandhya Gokhale. The cast of Dumkata, which deals with an urban couple and their two children, includes Om Puri, Sachin Khedekar and Sharnaz Patel along with child actors Khush Mallick and Aseem Desai.
The music has been given by the terrific trio Shankar Ehsaan Loy and the film will also see Om Puri with his rock solid base voice singing rap for the first time!
Well, fans of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Basu Chatterjee now have Dumkata to look forward to!
