When you make a film based on an epic writer’s short story and he lauds it, you are set to have a grand time. Ruskin Bond gave a thumb up to Bhargav Saikia’s The Black Cat, an official adaptation of a short story by the writer.
The author has stated that the short film is a very effective one. He also said that the film would definitely interest school children as well as adults. He further said that the director Bhargav creates the atmosphere of an old-fashioned hill station and the kind of people that lived there.
The Black Cat stars Tom Alter as Ruskin Bond and Shernaz Patel as an English witch, Miss Bellows. Saikia has earlier made the film ‘Kaafiron ki Namaaz and Awakenings.
