Kolkata, Aug 8 (IANS) Amid the ongoing ATM fraud fiasco in Kolkata, a film on the impending dangers of social media and the nuances of ethical hacking is set to hit the city screens next month.
The film, ‘The Hacker’, narrates how an undercover RAW agent tries to catch a mysterious serial killer with the help of a young hacker from Bengal.
The thriller produced by Lace Sytles Production, also featuring Bengali actress Ena Saha, is expected to release in the last week of September.
“Cyber security is one of the most alarming topics around the globe right now. My character in the film is about how a hacker, who was once arrested for defrauding a bank, turns himself into an ethical hacker to help the police. The objective of our film is to invoke interest among the youngsters about ethical hacking,” Bengali actor Aryann Bhowmick, who previously featured in Dibakar Banerjee’s film ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’, told IANS.
The debutant director duo, Siddharth Sen and Subrato Mondal, said apart from being a thriller, the film provides a lot of important details about patterns and trends of online hacking and hoped it would equip the viewers with important knowledge about security on the Internet.
“Very few movies have been made about such technical nuances concerning hacking. The viewers will get an elaborate overview of the trends of hacking and the impending dangers on the Internet which would in turn help them to be more careful while going online,” Sen added.
