Doosra trailer: Plabita Borthakur finds freedom in upcoming sports drama, directed by Abhinay Deo
The trailer of Abhinay Deo's (of Delhi Belly fame) upcoming sports drama Doosra was released on 28 June (Friday). According to the synopsis, it is "a story of how cricket changed India, seen through the eyes of a young girl."
The trailer combines scenes from the film featuring Plabita Borthakur with media interviews of politician and writer Shashi Tharoor, cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle and others talking about India's 2002 NatWest win. The sports drama shows the courage and freedom of expression that this historic event gave Indians like the protagonist, a girl from an orthodox family in small town India.
Talking about his film, Deo had said in a statement, “Sourav Ganguly marked the end of an era, the end of the submission. His one move at the NatWest final was so powerful and brought such a huge paradigm shift in our thinking. This film captures this through the life of a girl living in a patriarchal family suppressed by society and societal obligations. The poster of the film is only the first look. There are several more layers that audiences will understand once they watch the trailer.”
