Bengali Film Ekla Cholo Re Music Launched
Zee Bangla Cinema which has been offering great and original content to the people in the various shows aired on the channel is back again with a new concept. The channel will be airing full length feature films for the audience in the times to come. The channel will be doing this in association with Prosenjit Chatterjee’s NIdeas Creations and Productions Pvt Ltd. The first offering from the channel is ‘Ekla Cholo Re’ which is a film by director duo Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha. The music launch of this film took place at Mukti World in the presence of Prasenjit Chatterjee, the cast of the film and the director duo Sudeshna Roy- Abhijit Guha.
Prasenjit Chatterjee highlighted on the fact that his association with Zee Bangla goes back years ago. “When Zee first started the two hour slot many years ago, I felt that television is the future. The reach of television is four times the reach of Bengali films. I have known both Sudeshna and Abhijit for a long time now. I knew Sudeshna when she used to work as a journalist. This feels great that their film will be shown for the television audience”.
The film Ekla Cholo Re is a romantic comedy involving a woman, Ria who wants to become a single mother. She has been ditched by her boyfriend and hence she harbors hatred against men. However in the process she faces many problems. What happens to her is what the film will showcase.
“We keep thinking of offbeat issues. What will appeal to the audience and who will be able to enact the characters? The biggest challenge is to make the producers visualize the script. Often we cannot make them visualize the idea and hence the film gets shelved. However I am glad that finally we got a platform where we have likeminded people who understand this medium and hence this has been helpful” said director Abhijit Guha.
The music of this film has been composed by young music director Savvy, who has in the past given music to Bengali films like Challenge 2. The popular Rabindra Sangeet Ekla Cholo Re has been used in the film as the title track. The song has been arranged freshly by Savvy and sung by Ujjaini.
Sayani Ghosh who plays the role of Ria in the film said “I think it is a very fresh and new concept. The channel is courageous to show a film with such a unique concept. We all have tried our best to make the film a good one. I have worked with Sudeshna di and Rana da before. This is my first work with June di (June Maliah) and Koushik is a dear friend with whom I have worked before”.
“This is a great opportunity for newcomers like me. Such initiatives will help many artists to portray good roles in meaningful films. We may not get great roles in big budget films but initiatives of this kind will surely help us a lot in reaching out to more people” said actor Koushik Roy.
The film Ekla Cholo Re will premiere on Zee Bangla Cinema on January 18, 2015.
