‘Aseema- Beyond Boundaries‘ is a maiden project by KJ Dream Ventures. The film is based on the acclaimed Oriya novel ‘Aseema‘ penned by noted Oriya poet and novelist Sailaja Kumari Aparajita Mohanty and is the story of a young woman played by Gracy Singh.
The film takes you through her journey of life as she displays the strength of her character by sheer resilience and conviction in order to achieve all her goals single-handedly, thereby creating her own identity in the society. Along with the subject of womanhood, the film also brings in the theme of true love- love that is beyond any boundaries.
It promises to depict various definitions of love that have seldom been explored before. It’s a story that redefines relationships and revives unadulterated love.
The film also promises to explore various emotions like love, dreams, hopes, expectations, sacrifices and strength, making it a complete rollercoaster ride. It is a commercial film with a hint of realistic cinema that promises to appeal to Indian audiences around the globe.
Apart from Gracy Singh, who comes back after a long gap, the film stars Aseem Merchant, Neha Pendse, Kiran Kumar, Namrata Thapa, Surendra Pal, Aryan and Siddhant.
The director of the film Sisir P. Mishra is known for his narrative style of handling sensitive subjects as in the ’80s classics ‘Bheegi Palkein‘ (starring Smita Patil) and ‘Samay Ki Dhara‘ (starring Shabana Azmi). With ‘Aseema‘, he promises to put Gracy Singh in the same light. The music of the film is by Shamir Tandon, which is in line with the story of the film. The film has been shot on locations in Mumbai and Orissa.
