Sudhish Kamath's second film ‘Good Night, Good Morning' hits the screens on January 20
The blurry halos of a million lights that make up New York on New Year's eve fade out into a split-screen phone conversation between two strangers, Turiya and Moira, who talk of everything under the veil of anonymity. This hour-and-a-half long conversation, tinted black and white, makes the story of “Good Night, Good Morning”, directed by journalist-filmmaker, Sudhish Kamath.
The story attempts to explore an old-world romance in a technology-driven world. “What if you knew everything that two people in a relationship have ever said and done for each other from the beginning to the end?” asks Sudhish. “You would be god. I wanted to write a film that would make the audience play god and see a love story from very close quarters,” he says.
After being screened at international film festivals such as the Chennai International Film Festival, South Asian International Film Festival, Transylvania International Film Festival and Noordelijk Film Festival, The Netherlands, to name a few, “Good Night, Good Morning” is being released in theatres.
“We went to festivals we were invited to. New York, Transylvania (where we were rated 3.97 on 5 — on a par or slightly more than Oscar-nominated ‘Winter's Bone' and Sofia Coppola's ‘Somewhere'), and The Netherlands (where the audience rated us 7.11 on 10). The challenge is to get people in to watch the film since it's a black and white split screen film that's almost entirely just one phone conversation,” he says. “Good Night, Good Morning” will be playing in PVR and Sathyam from January 20.
