Upcoming Bengali Film Sondhey Namar Agey Story to Present a New Take on Detectives of Today


Bengali Film Sondhey Namar Agey Press Conference

After making his debut with Bengali film Basanta Utsab, director Rhitobrata Bhattacharya is all set to treat the audience with his most awaited Bengali film Sondhey Namar Agey. The press conference of this film took place recently in the presence of Rahul Bose, Nusrat Jahaan and director Rhitobrata Bhattacharya at the Park Hotels.


Sondhey Namar Agey is based on a murder mystery revolving around a city based celebrity family. An eminent writer accused in the murder of his wife, (former Miss Kolkata and actress) is sentenced to death. After many years the case is reopened by their daughter and with the help of detective Protyushalok Bhattacharya, she tries to prove the innocence of her father.

“Sondhey Namar Agey is not a detective story. It can rather be called as a detective’s story. From my perspective it is extremely difficult to find a detective like Protyushalok. He has grey shades and is not the typical endearing detective like Feluda or Byomkesh”.


“The genre of the detective films is too predictable. Hence I asked Rhitobrata that the journey of the detective will be unpredictable as this will give a twist to the predictable story. He will also be not the typical detective that one can think of. He is not analytical or articulate. There is a heaviness and darkness to this character. He is also an IPS officer who is well trained which again is a big difference from the conventional Bengali sleuths. He is also prone to drinking” said Rahul Bose.

Rhitobrata also added that there are events which we cannot protest against. However the detective in the film protests against these injustices and takes a strong stand against them.

Nusrat said on the occasion “I play an urban character, Roosha who is Sholoana Bangali at heart. I have worked hard to portray this strong, confident and urban character. I am not like Roosha in the day to day life. I believe there is Roosha in every girl. However the stand she takes and the way she takes decision in every matter is what I also must do in my personal life”.


Rahul Bose when asked whether he will be directing a film in future joked that he will start directing when he grows old or when he feels that his talent is no longer working. However the actor added that he is writing the screenplay with many characters who speak a variety of languages like Bengali, Hindi, Tamil, Konkani, Gujrati and so on. “You never know I may be credited with making the first film in India on thirty three languages” said the actor with a smile.

The film has a stellar cast of Rahul Bose, Rituparna Sengupta, Nusrat Jahaan, June Maliah, Arijit Dutta, Priya Karfa, Dr. Palash Sen, Rhitobrata Bhattacharya, Biswajit Chatterjee and others. The music is by Debanjan Banerjee and the Director of Photography is Soumik Haldar.

The film releases on 28th of November in theatres all over West Bengal and we wish the team the Very Best in their efforts!
