Pankaj Tripathi’s new film ‘Laali’ based on loneliness, pain, and love got an official release date. Nowadays, loneliness become a common word for all, it’s true that the pian of love has never culminated, the kind of love that is only status in our memories, and you have to learn to live but accept the absence.
We assume that in this film the red dress and silence symbolize the lost love. In life, we just need two things time and love, but time flows like a river, it never waits for anyone and there are some people who are very unfortunate in love.
The new trailer starts with Pankaj Tripathi dressed like a groom, moving the hangers, clearing dust with a towel, taking a step in a comedic sense, and starting to open the button of his attire. After that the trailer shows, Pankaj Tripathi lying on a bed covering a blanket staring at the rooftop without blinking an eye, and there is a smile on his face that reveals the pain inside him.
In the background, the song ‘Aanshu jo h ruke hua” is playing and he just woke up from the bed wearing a glass moving the curtain and watching a red dress hanging from a hangar. He takes it and treats it like his loved one and lay it on the bed, and he also lying beside it doing conversations, ad smiling. The trailer ends with his groom’s look in the laundry shop.
After sharing the concept of the film, the director Abhiroop Basu says:” One day it was on my way to the Dasani Studios in Kolkata when I came across an istriwala’s sop. Suddenly, a wedding procession passed by his shop and he did not even look up; he went about with his job. That stayed with me, I was so intrigued.”
He also adds that he was so drawn to the sight that for the next two-three months, he just went to the shop every day just to watch the istriwala’, “Throughout all this, not a single woman engaged in a conversation with him, and that put me into the thought—who has the woman in his life?”
The story is based on the real-life journey that Laali which is not like a typical unrequited love story that takes you. It has introduced you to Tripathi’s friend in a red dress. As the film continues, you just experience a whirlwind of emotions, from when the laundry worker first has seen the dress with multiple questions that can cross his mind as he is able to caress and just slowly observe the cuts and the silhouette, and finally, ironing it and carefully place it on the hanger just before calling it a day.
Tripathi has seen in a small house filled with loneliness as he spots a poster on the wall that shows a girl smiling in a red dress with ‘Laali’s Orchestra’ that’s written in Hindi.
