Pittsburgh doctor-turned-filmmaker Ravi Godse’s “Remember Amnesia,” released in 31 theaters across the country on June 14. The film tells the story of a U.S.-based physician from India who loses his memory during an accident while visiting India and as his memory comes back, he can’t remember whether or not he has killed his wife.
The film stars an international cast including Dileep Rao, Shruti Marathe, Tovah Feldshuh and Mahesh Manjarekar. “I like sense of humor and I think we should use it more in real life,” the family practitioner told Pittsburgh’s Action News 4. The film was shot in Pittsburgh, as well in Mumbai.
Godse moved from Mumbai to the U.S. in 1995 and established himself as a doctor in Pittsburgh’s Fox Chapel area. He took the little bits of time he found between seeing patients and raising his now grown daughter and son to attend Pittsburgh Filmmakers. With the influence of his cousin, well-known actress Madhuri Dixit, he was drawn to the cinematic art form from a young age, finally deciding to pursue it in 2007 with his first film, “Dr. Ravi and Mr. Hyde.”
“Remember Amnesia” is Godse’s fourth film His previous films include “Help Me, Help You,” “I Am a Schizophrenic and So Am I,” and “Dr. Ravi & Mr. Hyde.”
