Midlands Spotlight - Tainted Love

By midlandsmovies, Oct 10 2015 01:00PM

Tainted Love


Short film Tainted Love is a new film from the region based upon a true story that was entirely filmed in Derby at Riley’s snooker club. With influences from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet the film tells the story of a young woman who tries to elope with her boyfriend on the night of her forced marriage to another man.


The film raises the stakes as the couple are then forced to flee and it becomes a race against outside influences as the bride’s notorious brothers begin a hunt for her in time for the wedding.


Written and directed by Sonny Michael Chohan, the film also stars Dave Kukadia as Maz, Jade Greyul as Saima, Haqi Ali as Nasir and even the director himself as Imran.


Founded in January 2013, Sonny created Smooth Demon Productions which is a Midlands based production company that specialises in creating shorts, TV pilots and feature films. In addition, Sonny wants these to reflect real-life issues, particularly within the British Asian communities.


Over the past two years, SDP have made both Tainted Love and a drama pilot called Guilty Pleasures both of which look at modern day topics such as, sexism, racism, forced marriages, drug abuse, human trafficking, domestic violence, crime and much more.


Sonny says the aim for SDP is not only to make films but to also create a platform on which struggling actors, writers, directors and other crew members can come together and help each other out.


Influenced by the earlier works of directing legends such as Sidney Lumet, Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, SDP encourage all their actors and crew members to familiarise themselves with these styles before working with them.


With regular auditions for up and coming actors for new and future projects, interested actors and actresses should check out their website here in order to get involved:
