The trailer of Birsa Dasgupta’s upcoming drama Crisscross is out and we cannot keep calm! It opens with glimpses from the lives of its protagonists – Suzy, Ira, Meher, Rupa and Miss Sen.
Meher plays an aspiring actress. She stays with her mother. The film traces her struggle in becoming a successful actress. She does not wish to compromise for getting good work. The trailer gives us a sneak peek in her day-to-day life where she toils hard to accumulate money to pay for her rent. Ira is a workaholic journalist who is torn between prioritizing her career and love life. Her boyfriend, who wants to label their relationship, gives her a deadline to make a choice. Rupa is a wife who is a victim of domestic violence and is fettered in an unhappy marriage. She is ill-treated by her husband. Her brother-in-law tries to talk her into sleeping with him. Miss Sen is a headstrong, arrogant and rebellious woman. She needs to take an important professional choice for the sake of her employees and her company that is gradually going bankrupt. Suzy is a single mother who has to fight the odds of the society to raise her son. She is asked to leave a Catholic hostel because of her inability to pay the rent. But there is something that connects their stories – their desire to be happy.
What starts off as five stories that run parallel to each other gives us a cue that their crisis-driven lives are intertwined. JAM8’s Momer shohor makes for a powerful number that provides perfect support to the interesting trailer. The upbeat, energetic and power-packed rock song is an icing on the cake of this coming-of-age story of five women.
