Kalki Koechlin and Sumeet Vyas’ upcoming film Ribbon’s trailer was launched today at a high-profile event held at PVR Juhu, Mumbai amidst much fanfare with the full cast and crew in attendance.
In writer-director Rakhee Sandilya’s debut fiction feature, love is all about sticking together through life’s knotty turns and loose ends. The trailer is live now, promising a young love story that’s funny, poignant and painfully relatable.
The film introduces the super fresh pairing of award-winning actress Kalki Koechlin and internet sensation Sumeet Vyas, (of TVF’s Permanent Roomates fame) in his first full-fledged Bollywood role. Kalki, most recently seen in Konkana Sensharma’s acclaimed film A Death in the Gunj and who often wears her feminist heart on her sleeve, is excited about the way the film has shaped up. “Ribbon is a contemporary take on love and relationships that will strike a chord with modern millennial couples who attempt to balance work and family each day. The film questions how more often than not, childcare and parenting are responsibilities that most often fall on the young mother, and how a hostile corporate culture affects her life after pregnancy.” The film explores a whole new dynamic in modern love and relationships, with wry doses of humour and raw emotion.
Directed and co-written by filmmaker Rakhee Sandilya, the young romantic dramedy is set in Mumbai and shows a young couple’s journey while balancing an unexpected pregnancy and their demanding corporate jobs. She says: “When I started writing Ribbon, the idea was to show the lives of a working urban couple and the unique issues they face. Most romantic comedies focus on how boy meets the girl and gets her, my film focuses on how real life actually begins after that!”
Producers Swathi and Prakash Mondal of Red Cart Films are thrilled about their debut production landing in theatres soon. “Ribbon is a modern love story of our times that shines a light on some very relatable issues that urban working couples face. We are very happy to share the first trailer of Ribbon with the world and cannot wait for our audiences to watch the film.”
The film is marketed and syndicated by Shiladitya Bora’s Platoon One Films. RIBBON produced by Prakash Mondal and Swathi Mondal of Red Cart Films is slated to release across India on November 03, 2017.
Synopsis: Karan and Sahana have been happily married for two years, but when an unexpected pregnancy arrives, they find themselves making tough choices that will determine the future of their careers and their relationship. Ribbon is the journey of a young couple living the great Indian urban dream who discover that it takes a lot more than love and commitment to stick together through all of life’s knotty turns and loose ends.
