Based on the story of a freelancer, the feature film is all set to release on 18th August 2017~
Mumbai, 12th July 2017: Director Sandeep Mohan’s next release, “Shreelancer” is a feature film starring Arjun Radhakrishnan (an actor known for his film “A White Feather”) in the lead along with a veteran theater artist Salmin Sheriff and Monica Mahendru. The film is produced by Giju John – Tiranga Productions Pvt. Ltd. and Sandeep Mohan and slated to hit the screens on 18th August 2017.
The film is looking to be one of the best adaptation of the people who are self-employed.
Shreelancer, a 98-minute feature film is the contemporary take on the life of a freelancer in today’s India. Shreelancer follows Arjun Radhakrishnan (Shree), a Bangalore based mid 20’s freelance copywriter who is battling with nagging self-doubts about his artistic abilities. He does ads for small time ad agencies, but is quite frustrated that the world doesn’t seem to understand or respect freelancers. Unable to concentrate at home, he visits various cafes to find his peace and works from there. Addicted to his cellphone and the social media, Shree’s worldview is shaped by what he reads online, not having traveled much in the “real” world. As fate would have it, Shree gets an invitation to attend an all-expenses paid trip to a college friend’s wedding. And life as he knows it will never be the same again for Shree.
Shreelancer had its World Film Festival Premiere at the prestigious New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) in May 2017 where it was nominated in the best screenplay category. The film will next screen at the Blue Whiskey International Film Festival on the 8th August 2017 where it has been selected in the competition category. Apart from this, Sandeep Mohan has conducted 30 screenings at spaces like Cafes, Pubs, Office Spaces, Coworker Spaces, Colleges, Homes, Art Galleries, etc. and convert them into mini-theatres for the duration of the film. Sandeep conducts this screening under what he calls the “The Great Indian Travelling Cinema” experiment.
Shreelancer is the third feature film by Sandeep Mohan. His prior movies were Hola Venky & Love Wrinkle-free.
