The Mahuraat ceremony of the New Kolkata Bengali Film Saathi 2 took place recently at Tollygunje. Arav, Jinia Mukherjee, Tulika Basu and director Haradhan Das Soubhik were present at the occasion.
The film Saathi 2 is about a boy named Arav Saha(Arav) who comes to Kolkata from Nainital to study in a management college. However he is ragged by his seniors and he becomes a victim of this practice at the college. Jhinku (Sagnik) and Rupsa (Jinia Mukherjee) are behind his ragging at college. As a result he is rusticated from the college. Before leaving the college, with the help of the Principal of the college he sings at the annual function and leaves a mark in the minds of the students. After a few years Rupsa goes to Nainital to perform. She is saved by Arav from a mishap. Whether they are united in love or separated is what the film is all about. Speaking on the occasion, director Haradhan Das Soubhik said “Saathi 2 has nothing similar with Saathi (starring Jeet). The only similarity that one can trace is that both the films are love stories. Apart from this, the treatment and the storyline are very different”.
Music of this film is very important. Sandip Singha (who had also composed the music of the film K..se) will be composing the music of this upcoming Bangla film. Jubeen Garg, Kunal Ganjawala, Shaan, Akriti, Mahalakshmi Iyer, June Banerjee and Bappi Lahiri will be lending their voices to the songs in the film.
Rajatava Dutta, Mousumi Saha, Kharaj Mukherjee, Partha Sarathi, Mou, Tista, Paramita, Apurbo Roy will be seen playing important roles in this film.
Saathi saw the rise of Tollywood hero Jeet to stardom and fame. We will have to wait and see whether Jinia and Arav can also achieve such success with this romantic Bangla film, Saathi 2.
