The winner of six internationial awards, Deswa is the first Bhojpuri film in 50 years from Bihar to be selected at Indian Panorama section of International Film Festival of India (IFFI). Ironically, the film has found no takers on the home turf because of its "clean content," says actress-producer Neetu Chandra.
The film makes a social statement and deals with contemporary issues like corruption and portrays the struggle of the protagonists to procure a government job. "An entire family can sit together and watch Deswa, from a young child to an adult, unfortunately the film has been unable to find a distributor to release it. Bhojpuri cinema is usually associated with crass and vulgar content and I made an attempt to change that face with this film, but in vain. In the bargain, the financiers have lost a lot of money because we were unable to sell the film," fumes Chandra.
The film is directed by Nitin Chandra and stars Ajay Kumar and Deepak Singh. The film was slated to release last year.
