Video: Trailer and Poster Launch of Tollywood Hindi Film Best Seller
“It was actually a challenge for me to make a film in Hindi with the actors and technicians from Bengal. It is not that films of this type have not been made before but for me, it was kind of a challenge. This is because unlike Rituparno Ghosh’s Raincoat which had Aishwarya Rai and Ajay Devgan in lead roles, the lead actors of my film are actors working in the regional film industry. Hence, after the film was made, I felt peace” said director Suman Maitra at the trailer and poster launch of his upcoming film The Best Seller.
The film “The Best Seller” is the tale of two sisters Anu and Ayesha. They live in the red light district. However, due to the the elder sister’s attempts to clean the life of her younger sister, they are separated. Twelve years later, Ayesha along with her husband Rajat confronts Anu and asks her to walk out of her past life. What happens then is what the film all about.
Suman Maitra while commenting about the performances of the cast said “I was very conscious not to select big stars for this film. That will hamper the way I have sketched the characters. Hence, I deliberately selected theatre artists who may not be big stars but are extremely good actors”.
The cast of the film consists of Wrishita Mukherjee, Neha, Soumen Bhowmick, Dhruba, Amit Saha, Malobika Banerjee and Tathagata Mukherjee in pivotal roles. Suman Moitra has written the story, screenplay and dialogues of this film.
Produced by Saibal Ganguly, the music is by Rana Sarkar and the lyrics are by Amitadityya Sanyal. Raghav Chatterjee, Raktima Mukherjee, Rashni Sahaa, Sumana Chakraborty, Tushar Dutta, Irina Ray and Ragesree Das have lent their voices to the songs in the film.
The film is slated for release on 26th of February, 2016.
