Panaji, Nov 28 : Filmmaker Himanshu Singh said on Sunday that his film “Kumpacho Dareyo” tries to capture the journey of man from place to place.

Speaking to the media on the sidelines of International Film Festival of India (IFFI) being held here, he said, “Our film tries to capture the journey of man from place to place and seeks to bring out the dilemmas and agony attached to it.’

‘When people move from one place to another in quest of new opportunities, they face the dilemma of what all they should leave and what all they should take with them. Our movie is about expressing your love to the space you have grown up in. While you leave many things, you also take many things from there as well,” he said.

“Kumpacho Dareyo – A Sea of Clouds tells us to stay true to our roots even if we fly high and touch the skies. The movie says the destination of your journey determines your roots,” he said.

Himanshu said the film had its roots in an interesting anecdote shared by former Goa Chief Minister and Union Defence Minister Late Manohar Parrikar.

“During one of his speeches, Mr Parrikar reminisced about his childhood and narrated a story. When he was a kid, he used to get watermelons for free and they were so sweet. But they were given for free, only with a condition: children should leave the seeds there. But when they grew up, it was slowly losing its sweetness because most of the people who used to have the watermelon left for different places and hence stopped leaving the seeds behind,” he said.

“You can go to any part of the world in search of opportunities, but the sweetness will come around if you have an attachment with the roots,” the director, adding that this was the thought which acted as a catalyst behind the movie.

The film had its world premiere at IFFI in the Goan Section of the festival.
