The project Jack and the Purpose began way back in 2011 when Akasdeep Bhadra started out with the concept of showing the mindset of a boy going through a stage of identity crisis. Once the script was matured and the team was ready, we started shooting for the film in December 2011, with no crew members. Most of the time extra actors used to help in the shoot, and at times I shot the film with only the director and the actor. After two weeks of hard work, we were finally able to make a copy for sending to the film competition at ISI, Kolkata where it came among the top five films.
Work on the music was still left and continued till the end of January 2012. By February 2012 we were able to release our first short film in YouTube for our viewers.
The film originally used the track Chinese Democracy by Guns N’ Roses, but was later replaced in the current version released December 2013 with Third World Messiah by Age of Chaos.
The film received good reviews and criticism from the film lovers society of our college and a few other film enthusiasts from Kolkata.
The film did not have any story line or a linear timeline. It was an abstract idea and based on a poem, written by Ojoswi Sur, the lead actor of the movie.
