Netflix announced the release date of its upcoming psychological drama Art, which will premiere on December 1, 2022. Set in the late 1930s and early 1940s, Kaala is the story of a famous young playback singer. The film is about Kaala's tragic past and the ways in which she captures him, leading her to the zenith of her hard-earned success. But the beginning and end of his spiral is his relationship with his mother. The pathology of her upbringing and the neurosis that results from it. Witness the emotional journey of art that navigates professional successes while battling personal demons.
Director Anvitaa Dutt shares, “Qala is a story about mothers and daughters. And how a troubled upbringing can damage someone and have far-reaching consequences. Karnesh and I both felt it was an important story to tell. We set it in the world of music in the late 1930s; a setting both evocative and poignant. It has been an exciting and rewarding journey to bring this story to life with Netflix as our partners. This is my second outing with them and it has been twice as much fun to create a homegrown story for audiences worldwide.”
Anvitaa Dutt’s directorial return to Netflix stars Triptii Dimri, Babil Khan, Swastika Mukherjee, Amit Sial, Neer Raao, Avinash Raj Sharma and Ashish Singh in the lead roles. The film is produced by Karnesh Ssharma under the banner of Clean Slate Filmz.
