This ‘connection’ is strong!
Konkani film, ‘Connection’ has struck a chord with the Goan audience and is being well received across the state. Café revisits the cast and crew of the film
Right from the time the trailer of Christ Silva’s Konkani feature film, ‘Connection’ was out a few months ago, the Goan audience had been waiting in anticipation to catch the full fledged film on the big screen. Now, post its release, ‘Connection’ has struck a chord with the audience. The film features a story full of mystery and twists and this has managed to keep the audience at the edge of their seats. The film stars Prince Jacob and John D’ Silva in lead roles. With different characters coming into play with their stories and how they all share this one connection, is what the film is all about. The film is produced by Sylvester Fernandes and the story, screenplay, dialogues and direction are by Christ Sunjo Silva. After ‘Limits’ and ‘Action’, this 155-minute film will be Christ’s third feature film. A mechanical engineer by profession, Christ completed his education at Padre Conceicao College of Engineering, Verna, but his hobby of filmmaking turned into his passion and his focus is now entirely on making good and thought provoking films. For the uninitiated, Christ Silva is the elder son of John D’ Silva. While speaking to Herald, Christ Silva had said, “The film has used non linear storytelling with flashbacks within flashbacks, stories from different key characters and all characters have a correlation with one another. Prince Jacob plays the role of Fr Mark, one of the protagonists of the film and the movie is seen through his point of view. During the whole movie, the information that the audience receives is the same that Fr Mark receives. It is an entertaining film that keeps the audience guessing at every point.” While speaking with Café, John D’Silva said, “I was present for two shows and the way the audience is reacting is great. When the film comes to an end, people have given standing ovation for the message that the film gives. It has been an ice experience working with my son. Whatever he asked me to do, I used to do as after all, he is the captain of the ship. He has good experience in making the film. He knows how to shape the final product and has a good understanding of how the audience will react.” The film has various stories to relate, of different people in different situations of life. It carries a good dose of suspense, twists and turns. But the manner in which it has been linked to the seven Stations of the Cross deserves an appreciation. The value of a priest, his trials and tribulations, have been highlighted throughout the film.
The next show of ‘Connection’ has been schedule on January 14, 2018 at 3.30 pm at Ravindra Bhavan, Vasco.
