Sanjoy Nag - born and raised in Kolkata - started in documentaries before branching out into feature films. His debut feature, Memories in March (2010), had its world premiere in the New Currents at Busan International Film Festival 2010, and won the Indian National Award for Best English film that same year. Presently busy in post-production of his current feature film, Good Morning Sunshine - starring Shabana Azmi, Revathy, Shweta Tripathi, Rituparna Sengupta and Tejaswini Kolhapure, he is an obsessive foodie and traveler, with dreams of shooting a film set on Mars soon.
The brainchild of Sanjoy Nag, Bunty Talkies was founded to explore independent, content-driven media space across all platforms. Sanjoy has been involved with many national and international film projects over the last 3 decades, involving some of the most coveted names in the Indian film industry, many of which have gone on to win major awards at festivals and widespread critical acclaim. Apart from occasional acting assignments, he is currently busy directing and co-producing Hindi/English feature Good Morning Sunshine, starring Shabana Azmi, Revathy, and Shweta Tripathi, among others. Also on the horizon is a series of short indie films.
Ever since moving in with Bobby, an advertising executive, Sadaa, a lawyer, has insisted on having a child together; something unheard of in India. While Sadaa never hid her desire to become a mother, Bobby was indifferent. But, perhaps a child would bind their conjugal life together, if it ever manifested signs of withering, and would maybe look after them when they grew old! After a series of medical tests, their doctor suggested that between the two of them, Sadaa had a better chance of giving birth and the IVF procedures began. However, a few days later Sadaa woke up, discovering to her shock and dismay that she was having her period. Was it the end of the road for her plans? The doctor proposed that Bobby, too, should go through IVF while Sadaa receives corrective treatment. Soon enough the ‘reluctant mom’ Bobby tested positive. Sadaa felt very sad inside and Bobby felt guilty, even hoping for a miscarriage! Meanwhile neighbors protested against what they thought belittled and would destroy their idea of Indian culture; claiming lesbianism was a psychological disease that needed treatment! The medical reports arrive, and this time Sadaa tested positive, too. They definitely had not bargained for two kids, almost simultaneously, but in a situation like this, where both the parents are women, funnily enough they mostly end up comparing medical conditions and the physical changes that come along. Within the span of 3 months, they become a happy couple with two young children and life goes on, as they say.
