The poster of Indrasis Acharya’s upcoming film Niharika, starring Anuradha Mukherjee, Shilajit Majumdar, Anindya Sengupta and Mallika Majumdar, has been released.

Acharya’s fourth film after Bilu Rakkhosh (2017), Pupa (2018) and The Parcel (2020), Niharika is the story of a woman who returns to her roots away from modern civilization in order to resolve an existential crisis. As she heals the trauma of her dark and abusive childhood, she comes to live in a house named Niharika in no man’s land.

The poster features a female and a male character walking on a road that leads to a grand desolate mansion in the lap of nature. There are hills and trees in the background, but the colours in the poster give a sense of barrenness.

Speaking of the subject of the film, the director said, “The intention was to make a story of woman empowerment under an atmospheric environment, expressing the pain of gender identity and not being accepted as per own choice.”

According to Acharya, Niharika is a story of faith in love without any inhibition, which explores the limitations of a modern woman with the help of natural beauty around her and the house she lives in.

“We intend to showcase a different character of love, which becomes stoic in terms of living a new life with the house and a place that’s so completely different from the modern world,” he added.
