The music launch of upcoming Bengali film “Once upon a time in Kolkata” took place at M3 store in Dakshinapan shopping complex. Director Satarupa Sanyal, actress Ritabhari, Anindya and Lakshmiratan Shukla were present to grace the occasion.
Director Satarupa Sanyal, said “I won’t give away much of the story as that will stop the audiences from coming to the hall and watching the film. The film is about an anti-social and shows what happens once he marries. There is a realistic element in the film. There is no candy floss element in the film. Power is the most important thing and not emotions like love and respect. I personally do not believe in this ideology”. When questioned on the name of the film, the director clarified and said “The film Once Upon a Time in Mumbai had lots of action sequences. This is there in my film also. But apart from that the film is completely different”.
Ritabhari plays the role of Sreelekha in the film. “I play the role of a school teacher Sreelekha in the film. I fall in love with a criminal and I marry him. Unlike the other films in which the women characters ultimately fall in love with the criminal husband, this film shows the realistic side of things. The girl cannot adjust with the criminal husband” said the actress. Working with her mother has been a great experience for her. “My mother gives the actors enough space to deliver the role. It is a very homely atmosphere at the shooting sets. Though I depend too much on the directors, I am given enough space by my mother to portray the role” said Ritabhari.
Once Upon a Time in Kolkata Bengali Audio Songs Album has five songs. Samantak and Sougata have composed the music for the film. Eminent singers like Rupam islam, Somchanda Bhattacharya, Sanddepa, Anindyo Bose, Jinia Deb have lent their voices to the songs.
