Kaushik Ganguly, who honed his skills on the small screen with some outstanding and stand-offish telefilms, comes back to the big screen with Brake Fail, a comedy about a bunch of car mechanics starring Parambrata as Siddhartha, Saswata Chatterjee as Shanti, Clayton Rodgers as Tommy, newcomer Taranga as Goja and Anu Kapoor as Papaji, the owner of the garage. Koel Mullick plays Parambrata's love interest Roopa.

"After Shunya e Buke I wanted to do something different. I grew up watching comedies of Hrishikesh Mukherjee and Brake Fail is a tribute to his memory. As a director, I also wanted to explore comedy which I find very challenging," says Kaushik who comes back after three years to feature films. Koel Mullick will not wear any make-up for her role in the film which is a challenge by itself for glamour girls who are used to covering their faces with oodles of greasepaint. "I liked the character of Roopa. She is Muslim but pretends to be a Hindu. Later, she pretends to be a rich man's daughter. I will surely do the film if I can adjust my dates which seem quite haywire right now," says Koel.

Brake Fail is a low budget film being produced by Chivach Media, a sister concern of Moxie Entertainments that also produced Anjan Dutt's The Bong Connection. "Brake Fail is a comedy of errors. It is a feel-good film for the young and old alike," says Arindam Sil who is executive producer and will also play the role of a police inspector in the film. Neel Dutta will compose the six songs including a baul track.
