Channel Aakash Aath is presenting a new mega serial, which is based on several popular short stories penned down by the veteran novelist throughout the last three decades. The Daily Soap has been titled ‘Ghente Ghaa’ and is being directed by Mr. Manish Ghosh, who has directed many Telefilms and Mega Serials previously for Bengali satellite channels.
Not only this, after an interval of almost eight years, eminent screenplay & dialogue writer Mr.Padmanabha Dasgupta is writing yet again for the small screen and the audience will be treated to his brilliance starting January 13, 2014 as Ghente Ghaa will be aired on the Bengali Television channel: Akash Aath.
Both,, Producer Mr. Ashok Surana and his daughter cum the Managing Director of Aakash Aath, Ms. Eshita Surana are also pretty optimistic regarding the outcome of this project, as they feel that the current trend of Bengali Mega Serials severely lacks intellectual literally elements and also cerebral cum satirical comic quotient.
Ghente Ghaa is a multi-starrer comedy serial, which would feature a typical Bengali joint family, residing in North Kolkata. The stories revolve around three brothers and their respective spouses. Each of these characters have got their own typical signature mannerisms. Few renowned big screen actors like Biswajit Chakraborty, Suhashish Mukherjee, Anamika Saha and Chaiti Ghoshal are also acting in this comic extravaganza, being led by veteran Bengali film actress Srimoti Sabitri Chattopadhyay, who during her prime time has worked in several Bengali films opposite Mahanayak Uttam Kumar.
To officially launch this Comedy Mega Serial ‘Ghhente Gha’, a Press Meet was organized at The Conclave on January 7, 2014 by the Channel Authorities. The press meet was attended by actors Chaiti Ghosal, Anamika Saha, Sabitri Chatterjee, Padmanabha Dasgupta and the director Manish Ghosh himself. Famous novelist Sri Sanjib Chattopadhyay also graced the occasion as the guest of honor. The actors talked about their respective experiences while dealing with their onscreen characters, which were originally created by Sanjib Chattopdhyay. Scriptwriter Padmanabha Dasgupta shared his experience regarding developing the screenplay structure for ‘Ghhente Gha’ as he had to bind several short and ‘not so short’ stories, written by Sri Sanjib Chattopadhyay, all in a single thread in order to give this script, a wholesome structure.
While addressing the press, Sri Sanjib Chattoapadhyay said that he is optimistic that this serial is going to be a lot different from all the ongoing sentimental family dramas. He said that in today’s stressful urban life, one has to find a way to laugh loudly in order to take all the stress in his stride. As an author he has always tried to supply cerebral laughter elements to urban Bengali movies and hoped that ‘Ghhente Gha’ will definitely be a step ahead towards the fulfillment of his literal goal.
