The music launch of the New Kolkata Bangla Movie Anyo Naa took place at Press Club Kolkata. Director Partha Sarathi Joarder, music director Samik Sinha, actress Ananya Chatterjee and Konenica Banerjee, actor Nigel Akkara, Gautam Sushmit and producer Kingshuk Goon were present at the music launch ceremony of the film.
Partha Sarathi Joarder threw light on the story of the film. He said “The film is a deliberate protest of an ordinary housewife against the way she is exploited. She tries hard to make the life of everyone happy but does not get the due recognition from her husband and family. She finally says no to society and carves out a path of her own”.
The songs in this album are different, feels the music director Samik Sinha. There are five songs in the film. Eminent singers like Indranil Sen, Usha Uthup, Rupam Islam and Anwesha have lent their voices to the songs in the film. There is a Rabindrasangeet “Ei kotha ti mone rekho” in this album. Apart from this, the other songs have been written by Gautam Sushmit, Srijato and Samik Sinha. Another USP of the film is that Usha Uthup herself features in the song “Ei Raat mayabi” that she has sung for the movie.
Ananya plays the role of the housewife named Ananya. The name of the film Anya Na is based on her name. Nigel plays the role of Aloke, her husband in the film. Aloke is a struggling film maker who makes ad-films. He is trying to find a foothold in the industry. “I am really grateful to Ananya Madam for helping me out with the tough scenes. She has helped me a lot” said Nigel. The actor was also grateful to the director for having considered him for the role, despite knowing his past. Konenica who is essaying out a negative character in the film was elated at having got such a wonderful role. She however refused to divulge much about the role.
The film is slated for release on the 25th of October.
