Jalpari Preview

‘Jalpari – The Desert Mermaid’ is an upcoming children’s adventure film directed by Nila Madhab Panda, who had directed the national award winning film ‘I Am Kalam’. While his previous film also focused on social evils, ‘Jalpari – The Desert Mermaid’ takes a dig at female foeticide that is rampant in the villages in India.

Being a children centric film it stars an ensemble cast of child actors and adults playing supporting roles. A young girl heads to her family village for summer vacations along with her brother and parents. Her father being a doctor plans to open up a hospital at the village. The young girl has been raised in an urban society with no gender discrimination. All that she is miffed with during her stay at the village is that there are several ponds but all are dry, hence she is unable to swim. Some kids in the village inform her that there is a pond where she can find water but no one is allowed to head there since it is said to be haunted by an evil spirit of a lady. Things take a different turn when the girl visits the haunted place and is taken aghast by the villagers. ‘Jalpari – The Desert Mermaid’ narrates the adventure of the young girl that changes the fate of the village.

Produced by Sushil Kumar Agarwal of Ultra Distributors Pvt. Ltd and directed by Nila Madhab Panda, ‘Jalpari – The Desert Mermaid’ is slated to release on 20th July 2012.

The film was screened at the film market section of the 65th Cannes Festival this year and is headed as a nominee at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards to be held in Sydney.
