Bhubaneswar: National award-winning director Anupam Patnaik has announced his next Odia feature film titled ‘Tri-Kanya’, slated for release on January 24.
The star cast of the film includes Barsha Patnaik, Manoj Mishra, Aman, Sradha Panigrahi, Partha Sarathi Nishanth Majithia, Sukant Rath, Nivy, and Sijan Mohapatra.
‘Tri-Kanya’ delves into the lives of three women hailing from diverse social backgrounds and landscapes, each grappling with their unique challenges and triumphs.
The Odia film industry has recently been marred by internal disputes and divisions, hindering its growth and impact. Director Anupam Patnaik hopes that ‘Tri-Kanya’ will act as a catalyst to bridge these divides and bring the industry together, uniting under the banner of Odisha and the broader Indian film landscape.
Patnaik’s previous project, ‘Pratikshya’, which received the National Award for Best Odia Film, underlines his commitment to socially relevant cinema.
By emphasizing content quality and inclusivity, Patnaik aims to rejuvenate the Odia audience’s interest in theaters and revolutionise the Odia film industry for years to come. The film is expected to be a pivotal moment in the ongoing industry tussle, offering hope for a more united future.
