Andolito Akax is a story that addresses an important topic – mental illness. The stigma of mental illness can lead to obvious and direct discrimination, forcing patients to refuse help or treatment. The series will attempt to depict the story of Mamoni who is her mother’s sole caregiver. Her mother suffers from Alzheimer’s and depression. In the process of caregiving, Mamoni goes through different phases of struggle, fights her battle well, and ultimately comes out victorious.
The screenplay for the series is written by Drishti Das, cinematography will be done by Nagen Baishya, editing will be done by Gautam Mazumder, Deepak Kumar Roy is the drama and casting consultant, and Manoah Benny is the production manager for the project. Harjeet Diaz is the music director, Jyoti Chetia will handle sound design, and Tanushree Baruah will be the stylist & costume designer for the series.
“Coping with the stigma of mental illness, Mamoni’s story is inspiring, enlightening, and heart-warming. It has the power to broaden people’s minds and views toward mental illness and therefore, this story needs to reach a wider audience”, says Samujjal Kashyap, Director of Aandolito Akax.
