According to a statement by the producer Ronnie Lahiri, they always knew a genre like this will be a huge experiment, what they are happy about is that it’s not only paid off well by getting great reviews but also performing at the ticket windows.
Shoojit Sircar and his creative team are known for doing experimental cinema with working on films like Vicky Donor, Madras Café, etc. With October too, the makers are happy that their experiment has paid off well. They are happy that a film without any commercial attractions such as promotional songs, action sequences and dance numbers has been appreciated, which is definitely going to set standards for other films (of similar genre) in the future.
