Actor Rohit Pathak is overwhelmed with the response to his latest film “Baromas”, Baromas, which means month-after-month, is based on Sahitya Akademi winning novel by the same name by Sadanand Deshmukh. The story based on drought, who was born and brought up in Amravati in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra and who had witnessed day-to-day struggles faced by farmers. Though the film’s story revolves around one particular family but through this one story, it goes on to tell the stories of hundreds and thousands of families residing in rural parts of India and not just Vidarbha. They all have the same issues – be it unemployment, dependence on weather, market sources, or petty politics in the area. Rohit Pathak who is playing a character of Fisherman in the movie says such type of films come almost once in an actor’s lifetime.
“My Twitter and Facebook feed has been flooded with #Baromas, so much positivity and love… I couldn’t have asked for more and for sure wasn’t expecting this much hence feeling very overwhelmed,” Said Rohit Pathak.
When We are watching this film with the audience, our hearts suddenly feel overwhelmed because we heard the people sobbing in the cinema hall.“During the first film preview, we actors did not feel anything as we wanted to focus on the quality of our acting first,” said Rohit Pathak.
Released on June 17, Baromas has already done the rounds of film festivals like 12th Osian’s Cinefan Film Festival, 9th Annual South Asian International Film Festival (SAIFF), New York and Washington DC Independent Film Festival (DCIFF).
