Dear Molly’, an Indo-Swedish collaboration shot in English and Hindi is a poignant story based on a father-daughter relationship. The film explores the journey of a daughter in search of her father in Sweden. The protagonist Molly had last seen her father when she was five years old.
Shot extensively in Sweden, some of the minor portions of the film were shot in and around Maharashtra. Director of the film Gajendra Ahirehas 49 films to his credit for which he has contributed in direction, story, screenplay, dialogues and lyrics. He is especially known for his work in Marathi cinema.
Excited at the prospect of a special screening for the Oscar jury, he shares, “It is an honour for ‘Dear Molly’ to have a special Oscar screening. It’s a very special film that I have shot in different languages, but the essence remains the same. It is the English version that is being screened in Los Angeles. It's a story of a daughter's search for her father taking cues from a trail of letters he had written to her.”
Producer Praveen Nischol adds, "Dear Molly is a story that will connect with all fathers and daughters. It's shot indifferent languages that has its own distinct flavour in each language. The credit goes to Gajendra for his master storytelling that makes this such a compelling film to watch."
Produced by Praveen Nischol and Ratan Jain, presented by Manmohan Shetty and Ganesh Jain and directed by Gajendra Ahire, ‘Dear Molly’ is all set for an early 2019 release.
