Abby Sen enters a school and children rush towards him. If you are wondering what exactly is happening, then do not worry as this is a scene from the shooting of the upcoming Bangla Movie Abby Sen by director Atanu Ghosh, the shooting of which was taking place at Bharat Laxmi Studios Kolkata when the team of Sholoana Bangaliana met the team.
“Abby Sen is a 30 year old television producer who is academically brilliant and has a strong background in science. His greatest passion is watching science fiction stories and films. However the programs he makes for the television audience never strikes gold. As a result, he goes on losing jobs with the count going up to seven. This makes his wife Sromy hysterical. He meets a scientist by chance who decides to take Abby back in time when bagging a job was not that difficult. However he has certain conditions to be fulfilled. Does Abby fulfill them? What happens to Abby is what the audience will come to know when they watch the film” said director Atanu Ghosh.
In a big collared white shirt and blue jeans, Abir Chatterjee looked every bit the time traveler Abby Sen. “More than a science fiction, the film is an emotional journey. Though Abby Sen goes back in time, there are no time machines or people flying in mid air shown. This is more of conceptual science fiction. The best thing here is that it is giving me an opportunity to revisit the time when I was growing up (the 80’s). Time travel and science is just a catalyst to help in carrying forward the narration of the story” said Abir Chatterjee.
Priyanka Banerjee will also be seen in an important role in the film. “I play the character of Srirupa. For me, the biggest challenge is acting like a sixty year old lady. I just hope my work is appreciated by the audience” said the actress. The actress who had earlier worked with Abir Chatterjee was full of praises for him. “He is very professional and it is a pleasure to work with him. In the free time we talk about our children also” added the actress.
Music in the film is by Joy Sarkar while the lyrics have been penned by Suchandra Chowdhury.
