Colors-Bangla-serial

Colors Bangla’s new serial E Amar Gurudakshina is an adaptation of the Anjan Chowdhury directed film Gurudakshina which released in 1987. The film featured Tapas Pal, Shatabdi Roy, Kali Banerjee, Ranjit Mullick in pivotal roles.

The backdrop of the story is set in the suburban area of West Bengal. Saheb is a young and vibrant man whose only passion in life is his singing. He belongs to a middle class family and dreams of becoming a famous singer one day. Shoi is a happy-go-lucky girl who is born and brought up in a wealthy family. She dreams of building her successful career through singing. When the two collides, hue of hatred, love and music fills the aura.

Colors-Bangla-Serial

Actor Biswaroop Banerjee plays the role of Saheb in the serial. “I will be playing this role which has been made so popular by Tapas Pal. I am grateful that Tapas Pal who is also acting in the same serial is giving me tips on how to enact the role better. I had seen the film before and I again watched it before I started acting in the serial” said the actor.

Janardan Roy who is a businessman by profession is the character played by actor Dipankar Dey. “I am a flamboyant character. I run the music industry but I am very weak towards my live in partner Damini. She has hypnotized Janardan and he is helpless in front of her. This is a different kind of a serial as this is not the typical serials that one watch on television in recent times” said the actor.

Chumki Chowdhury plays the role of a loving sister-in-law of Saheb. “Jaya comforts him and loves her brother-in-law. I am again acting in serials after one and a half year. And to act in this serial is giving me positive vibes” revealed the actress.

Actor Debdutt Ghosh plays the role of Pronoy Sen in the serial. “I earn more money and hence I look down upon the others who earn less than me. He tortures the good people like Saheb. He acts as a catalyst in the serial. The serial has a lot of Bengali emotions with which the audience will be able to relate with” said Debdutt Ghosh.

Colors-Bangla-serial

The serial has been directed by Amol Chakraborty and Suman Roy. “We chose Gurudakshina simply because director Anjan Chowdhury could reach out to the hearts of the people like no other director. So we took up this film for adapting it into a serial. The serial is a musical also. Apart from the Adhunik songs, there will be many more melodious songs in the serial. Kumar Sanu’s Koto je sagor nodi will also be played in one episode. Hopefully the audience will be able to relate with the music in the serial” said director Amol Chakraborty.

Tapas Pal will be seen in the role of Master moshai in the serial. Pradeep Chakraborty (Amol Sen), Mimi Dutt (Rani), Debottama Saha (Shoi), Genia Mukherjee (Damini), Animesh Bhaduri (Abhishek), Bidisha Chowdhury (Nandini), Biplob Bandopadhyaya (Binoy Sen) and others will be seen in important roles in the serial. The shooting of the serial is taking place at Country Club, Indrapuri Studio and Bolpur.

E Amar Gurudakshina starts from today and will be shown from Monday to Saturday at 8.30 pm, on Colors Bangla.

Kolkata-food-festival

The southern part of India, apart from having a resplendent culture, also boasts of various spices and occupies a distinct place in the culinary map of the country. For years it has exported spices to various parts of India as well as beyond its borders.

The new Southern Spice food festival at the Sonargaon at Taj Bengal promises to be a treat for the taste buds. The menu has been specially designed by the restaurant’s chefs. They have put together a unique compilation of vegetarian and non-vegetarian delicacies after extensive research in the interiors of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. In the process they have also acquired knowledge, cooking techniques, compiling family recipes and traditional banana leaf fare. The Taj Coromandel brings this remarkable experience and craft of Southern Spice to the Sonargaon.
