Interview: Richa Meena – Last Film Show

The well-known saying, “if you love someone, set them free,” takes on deeper significance in Pan Nalin’s Last Film Show. This film serves as a heartfelt tribute to celluloid as a living, breathing entity. The character portrayed by actress Richa Meena embodies not just nurturing but also the recognition that she must allow her child to find his own path to happiness—a challenging task to self-impose when your child is not even in the double digits in age. Meena’s character takes on the role of cooking with meticulous and purposeful care, reflecting her artistic nature. It becomes evident that her son, Samay, is an extension of her very purpose for being. With less than a decade of acting experience, Meena has now earned her place among the female heroines featured in Nalin’s body of work. Last Film Show juxtaposes this new face in cinema among the female heroines we’ve encountered in his filmography. I had to chance to speak to the actress at the 2022 Red Sea International Film Festival.
