The star cast of the movie including Sohini Sarkar, Shankar Debnath, Dwijen Bandopadhyay along with the director himself was present on the occasion.
'Phoring' is based on the deeper psychological exploration of a child who is in his teens and climbing the ladders to adulthood, while substantiating the hardships faced in such an age group.
The probable reactions from elders and the authentic depiction of a lifestyle that is penetrative within areas of North Bengal are some of the eye fetchers in the story.
Akash Adhikary in the role of 'Phoring' has a mismatched, disheveled and messed up life, who lives in isolation most of the time questioning God about his thoughts, imaginations and confusions.
Very well stuffed conceptually, this story throws light to the everyday issues a family has to face in terms of one's son or daughter.
Still there are areas those which cannot grasp the child's growth and development with time and ages.
Sohini Sarkar in the role of Phoring's mentor played her role equally well and with subjectiveness.
The only figure who could study Phoring's capabilities and understand what is untold by him made her his favourite.
The bonding that they shared was more than a teacher-student one, especially for Phoring.
Ritwick Chakraborty as Sohini's cousin brother, though with a limited span in the entire film, played the important aspect in creating the change and bringing the climax of the story.
The dialogues in the film were very selective so that an audience can be a next door neighbour to such issues or itself a family dweller.
The nature's constant presence and the communion that Phoring shared with it when disillusioned has been beautifully visualized.
Indranil Roychoudhury said, "We have made this film with a very positive outlook and we are expecting a positive response from the audience. After this film I hope the families can be closer to their child".
