Ace film maker Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s Tope- The Bait was shown at the 22nd Kolkata International Film Festival. A press meet was held in the presence of Buddhadeb Dasgupta, Paoli Dam, Malobika, Ananya Chatterjee, producer Pawan Kanodia and others.


The film Tope is about three characters. Munni is a nomadic girl who performs tricks with her parents. Goja is a postmaster who is fed up with his life and takes residence in a tree. Raja is a man of regal origins who lives in the glory of his past. As the film shifts between the three stories, it raises the question as to who is actually the bait.

Speaking at the event, Paoli Dam said “I am honored that I got the chance to work with Buddhadeb Dasgupta. I have always disturbed him during the shoots by asking about the different technicalities. His trolley shots are just wonderful. This has been a great learning experience”.


Paoli Dam, Malobika, Ananya Chatterjee, Sudipto Chatterjee, Kajal Kumari, Chandan Roy Sanyal and others will be seen in important roles in the film.

The film has also been show at Busan and Toronto 2016 Film Festivals.
