Based on Shaktipada Rajguru’s story, Aakash Aath’s Ek Maser Galpo will air Jiban Kahini for the month of August.
Jiban lives in a slum with his daughter Basanti. He works as an insurance company’s agent. Since he is unable to get business, his condition gets worse. The slum owner Gadai babu asks for the rent. But Jiban cannot pay him the rent. He threatens Jiban. But on seeing his daughter wants to marry her. He fails to impress Basanti and insults Jiban. He decides to commit suicide. And it is then that he meets Asim. What happens next is what the story all about.
Indrajit Deb who plays the role of Jiban said “I have seen the film many years ago. Hence I do not vividly remember anything now. I am trying to do the role according to the vision of the director”.
Director Shankar Chanda said “We have followed strictly the original story and not the film. This is mainly about the poverty stricken people who fight back despite all odds. The story is of the sixties but we have shown the eighties. Otherwise it would be difficult to get locations or props of that age now”.
The shooting has been done in Ashok Nagar (Habra), Baruipur Rajbari, Howrah Bridge, streets of North Kolkata, Ahiritolla and other places.
Rabindrasangeet like “Ghorete bhromor elo”, “Mayabono Biharini”, “Ei korecho bhalo” have been used. Camera has been handled by Soumitra Shankar Halder.
Ritu Rai Acharya who had earlier worked in projects like Robi Thakurer Bou, Ghete Gha, Sahitter Shera Samay, Icchenodi is excited to play the role of Basanti. “I have seen the movie a long time ago. This is a tough character and I am trying my best to do justice to it” said the actress.
Ritu Rai Acharya (Basanti), Indrajit Deb (Jiban), Prosun Gayen (Asim), Tarun Chakraborty (Godai), Abanti Dutta and others will be seen in pivotal roles in the film.
Starting from 16th August, this program will be aired from Monday to Saturday at 7pm only on Aakash Aath.
