MacNeill Media Introduces Upcoming Films
MacNeill Media, an entertainment company that has over the last year established itself as an indispensable entity of the Bengali film industry has taken up the mammoth task of producing eight Bengali films in a row and the number may as well be ticking while we read this.
In a recent press conference organized by this entertainment giant, four films namely Sajarur Kanta, Ichchemotir Goppo, sesh Anko and Tuski, that are in their last phases of production were introduced to the press in the presence of the film’s cast and crew. The other four films that are soon to go on floors were also briefly spoken about at the press conference.
Taking turns at the dais, the director of each film introduced his team and spoke at length about what to expect from the movie, while profusely thanking Mr. Pradip Churiwal, owner of Macneill Media for having given them this wonderful platform.
The man behind the entire show, Mr. Pradip Churiwal also took to stage and spoke at length about his current films, plans of producing more Bengali films in future and even creating a robust infrastructure to facilitate the making of more and more good and cost effective films.
Team Sesh Anko led by director Tathagata Banerjee was the first to present their film and also launch the film’s only song, a jazz blue number ‘Aaj Rate’. While the director was all praises for his team members, Creative director and writer of the film Sanjib Banerji said “This was my dream project and I still can’t believe that my film is in its last phases of production. I am very thankful to my director and the team for such a wonderful journey and hope to continue working with this dynamic team in future too”. Sesh Anko along with Deepankar De also stars three leading ladies namely Parno Mitra, Debleena Dutt and June Maliah but adding to the team’s glamour quotient were only June and Debleena as Parno could not make it to the event due to prior engagements.
The team of Ichchemotir Goppo comprising of director trio Atanu Hazra, Adinath Das & Koushik Sengupta.took to stage next and introduced their Upcoming Bengali Film. The gorgeous Tanushree Chakroborty who plays Ichchemoti, the main protagonist in the film was present at the event and speaking at the occasion said,” Working in this beautiful film was like a dream come true as, if not here I would have never got to essay such a beautiful role”. Tanushree also thanked the directors for trusting her with such an interesting character. Taking turns to talk about their experience in the film, all the three directors said that they have tried to present a beautiful tale of relationships and the audience should come to the theaters to enjoy the film. While the film’s leading lady presented a pretty picture, its main attraction Saswata Chatterjee was sorely missed.
While teams Sesh Anko and Ichchemotir Goppo were represented more or less by their full strength, upcoming Bengali Films Tuski and Sajarur Kanta were represented by their respective directors Aniket Chattopadhyay and Saibal Mitra only.
Other actors and actresses like Bratya Basu, Rudranil Ghosh, Locket Chatterjee, Arijit Dutta and others also graced the press meet to talk about their respective films to be made under the banners of Macneill Media.
With back to back content rich films ready for release in the year 2015 and a bouquet of films with enviable star cast in their pre-production stage, MacNeill is surely headed to make it big in the Bengali Film Industry.
