In the Media

Rohit Roy: One needs to be versatile  
Rohit Roy was in the news recently for his directorial venture RICE PLATE - one of the 10 stories in DUS KAHANIYAN mainly because of the simplicity of his story. His story has been termed as one of the best stories in the film. Lately, Rohit quit serials to act in films as he thought that he had to let go of many good roles in films due to his busy TV schedule.more

Life is an actor’s research base  
Rohit was respectful but not intimidated. He was able to ask us (Naseeruddin Shah and me) for a retake. I wanted a tutor to learn Tamil, he got me one. He shot some complicated scenes at Bandra station. Rohit definitely has a spark. more

Short story  
Being an actor himself, Rohit knows how to deal with an actor. He was extremely respectful, but not artificial and when he asked for a retake, I always felt he was justified. Ultimately it’s in the DNA of actors to respect his director. more

'Dus Kahaniyan' has many firsts  
'Dus Kahaniyan', released on Friday, promises to be unique at many levels. It's for the first time that two directors - Sanjay Gupta and Hansal Mehta - directed two different segments of the same story in a film. more

I'm in awe of Nana Patekar - Rohit Roy  
He is what a package deal is all about. He is handsome, hard working, pro actor, and has an unbiased attitude! What more can you ask for? If you are wondering whom are we talking about, well, the answer is none other than the chocolate liquor Rohit Roy, whose acting has already got him fans by dime a dozen. more

A lot on his plate  
Rohit Roy talks on directing Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi and refusing Ektaa Kapoor His may be a ten minute film but when it’s your directorial debut, every minute counts. And of course, Rohit Roy cherishes each of these ten minutes that make up his film ‘Rice Plate’, one of the ten short films of ‘Dus Kahaniyan’. more

Rohit Roy and Mansi Joshi Roy’s Magic Indeed Works!!  
As Dus Kahaaniyan, the movie with a package of 10 short films is slated for a November 23rd release, we talk to the new Director Rohit Roy, about his Production House Magic Works' and much more... more

How Rohit Roy tempted Naseeruddin

Reviews
Streaks of ingenuity  
At least one of the shorts, like Rice Plate, raise hopes that shorts may have a future in this country, where the audience supposedly expect to get their quota of songs, dances, mush and comedy to realise their money’s worth. more

Subhash K Jha speaks about Dus Kahaniyaan  
the piece de resistance of the collection is debutant director Rohit Roy's 'Rice Plate'. A miniature masterpiece about a bigoted Tamilian woman's journey into communal tolerance it boasts of a majestic performance by the indomitable Shabana Azmi. more

Plate of honour (the grand first-prize) - Rice Plate  
To judge this as it were, as an audience-jury, I’d probably hand over the plate of honour (the grand first-prize) to a picture on this collection called Rice Plate. The winning director, surprised as I was when the credits rolled, is a television actor making his filmmaking debut, Rohit Roy. more

Dus Kahaniyaan review - IndiaTimes   
Pooranmashi (Amrita Singh, Minnisha Lamba, Parmeet Sethi), Rice Plate (Naseeruddin Shah, Shabana Azmi) and Gubbare (Nana Patekar, Rohit Roy and Anita Hassanandani) are the pick of the lot and are very interesting to watch... more

Definitely, this film is worth a watch - Glamsham
Rice Plate: ... It’s about a Hindu woman, her staunch beliefs and her chance meeting with a Muslim man. That one meeting changes her perception of . more

Some decent Kahaaniyan - Rediff
Rice Plate might be Rohit Roy's directorial debut and the first of these ten stories to directly be connected by the 'inspired-by' tag to material that already exists, but it is still a good story. more

Dus Kahaniya: Visual Literature!  
Roy surprises all with his sensitive story telling style. He keeps the grip on the story and keeps audience interested in it. Handling stalwarts like Nasiruddin Shah and Shabana Azmi more
