“Pijus, Subrata and Brahma Khepa (Sanjay) have done a great job by composing the songs on the lines of Jhumur folk form. We acquired a lot of help from the inhabitants of Purulia in the field of music” said Anindya Chatterjee.
“It was really challenging and exciting creating the music for this movie. We spent a lot of time to study the local folk art so that the songs can be based on these themes. All the singers have done a splendid job for and I am eagerly awaiting audience feedback”, said Pijus Chakraborty, Subrata Das and Brahma Khepa(Sanjay).
The folk art forms of rural Bengal hardly get any importance in recent times. However once in a while they get noticed by sheer magic by the urban crowd. The story is about two young journalists who visit Purulia to compile a research on ‘Jhumur’, the famous folk art form of Purulia. The story begins from the fictitious village of ‘Jhumura’. The narration of the elderly couple includes two village folks Kanchan and Kusum and their blooming romance. They are from two different strata of society and their love-story is threatened several times by many odds. How they meet, get separated and again re-united, forms the essence of the film’s narrative. There is an exquisite game of time and space throughout the film. A mystic time-traveller holds the chord between two eras.
The movie also stars Kuchil Mukherjee, Gopa Sengupta, Parthasarathi Chakrabarty, Debapratim Dasgupta, Sourav Chakrabarty, Pradip Kumar Chakrabarty, Tania Kar, Suchandra Chandra, Soumya Chatterjee, Shankar Dey, Indra Lahiri and Swarup Dutta.
The movie is slated for release soon.
