A Bangla feature film directed by Indranil Roychowdhury. Produced by CHITRABEEKSHAN AUDIO VISUAL PVT LTD. Duration: 126 min, Genre: Drama.
Description: Phoring is a story of adolescence most adults deny they ever had. In fact we all prefer to believe that we jumped straight from the flowery innconce of childhood to the informed maturity of adulthood. The midgreys of awkwardness, lack of direction, gawkiness, lack of identity are themes we prefer never to associate with ourselves. Phoring is a sweet reminder film in that sense. It is definitely not a film for children. Its a children’s story for adults.
Plot Outline: An adolescent boy (Phoring) growing up in a back-of-beyond township in North Bengal. Surrounded by the lush Dooars countryside the town barely survives the shutdown of a factory and its jobless population. Maladjusted and a born loser, Phoring fights the voices in his head he calls God. And then a new teacher (Doel) arrives in school. Doel opens up his mind to things unknown and just when Phoring starts believing that this is not a dream, Doel disappears abruptly leaving behind a trail of doubt and suspicion. Phoring decides to go looking for her in Kolkata.
