Aparna Sen’s much-discussed film, The Japanese Wife, has finally been scheduled for release on 9th April. Mainly in English, the film is based on a novel of the same name authored by Kunal Basu, who teaches Management Sciences at Oxford. “My original plan was to make a fictionalized film of the five trekkers from Jadavpur University who died in a trekking tragedy in 2006. During discussions with Kunal, he narrated the storyline of his then unpublished work, The Japanese Wife and I changed my plans, deciding to make this film,” explains Sen. Her fans have been waiting for more than two years for the public release of the film.
