Video: Upcoming Bengali Film Praktan Trailer Launch Event
The trailer of the upcoming Bengali film Praktan was unveiled recently in the presence of director duo Nandita Roy-Shiboprosad Mukherjee, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Soumitra Chatterjee, Rituparna Sengupta, Anupam Roy, Aparajita Auddy, Gargi Roy Chowdhury, Anindya Chattopadhyay and others.
The film Praktan tells the story of Sudipa and Ujaan whose past comes to haunt their present lives. What happens as a result of this is what the film all about.
“The film is a wonderful take on relationships. Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy has great eye for such issues. They have explored this in their last film Belaseshe and they have again done this in this film” said actress Rituparna Sengupta who plays the role of Sudipa in the film.
The trailer’s uniqueness lies in the fact that it has the recitation of Tagore’s Hathat Dekha which has been recited by veteran actor Soumitra Chatterjee.
Speaking at the occasion, director Nandita Roy said “The script demanded that we cast Rituparna and Prosenjit together. We were initially apprehensive whether they will agree to work after fifteen years but they agreed. When they gave the first shot, we did not feel that they are working again after such a long time”.
Aparajita Auddy who will be sharing screen space with Prosenjit Chatterjee after seventeen long years was visibly ecstatic. “I have worked with Bumba da long time back. The film Praktan is becoming a nostalgic ride for many of us. I am working with him after seventeen years. The audiences will see the hit pair of Prosenjit-Rituparna after fifteen years. That will indeed be a treat for them. My character is very interesting and I will not divulge much at the moment” said the actress.
Prosenjit Chatterjee plays the role of a Kolkata guide in the film. “My character Ujaan takes people out for heritage walks. This is a profession which does not make you rich but you actually enrich the knowledge of the tourists about your city. Even I have become aware of many places after doing this role in the film” said the actor.
The film is slated for release on 27th May.
