MUMBAI: Director Aparna Sen is making a comeback with the film The Japanese Wife which stars Rahul Bose, Raima Sen, Chigusa Takaku and Moushumi Chatterjee. The film is set to release on 9April, 2010.
The film is about Snehamoy, a schoolteacher in the Sunderbans, and Miyage, a young girl in Japan, who meet through letters, fall in love and get married through letters! They have been married for 15 years … but have never met.
Saregama MD Apurv Nagpal says, "We admire Aparna’s work and ability to interpret love. This is not just a film but a lyrical love poem, very different to anything out there in today’s age of instant gratification."
