‘Akuri… And a Pinch of Hope’ to release on March 20

As a tribute to the Irani cafe culture, Parsi filmmaker Jamshid Roointon is releasing a short feature film “Akuri?And a Pinch of Hope”, on March 20 which is also happens to be the Parsi New Year, Jamshed-I-Navroz.

Produced under Axis Jump Films, the film, being released digitally by Humaramovie, features Darshan Gokani, Sushant Kandya and critically acclaimed veteran actor Firdaus Mevawalla, read a statement.

“‘Akuri? And A Pinch of Hope’ is a story full of hope and positivity, which reinstates our belief that life is not just a rat race. Sometimes, it doesn’t make sense, the short periods of time people come in our lives, or the outcomes from what they say or do.

“However, if one lets them in and allows things to happen, one will definitely see the big picture thereafter,” Roointon said in a statement.

“This is the story of one such experience for Sadiq Sheikh and Cyrus Irani, who are poles apart in their characteristics. What transpires between them makes up for the interesting plot that ‘Akuri?And A Pinch of Hope’ is. Its story has been told not only with a lot of charm but also sensitivity, and we are sure it will resonate with the audience,” Roointo added.

The movie’s title song “Hope Ki Rope” has been penned and composed by Shubhankar, while singer Shaan has lent his voice for it.
