Video: Paoli Dam on Her new film Mandobasar Galpo

In an exclusive conversation with actress Paoli Dam about her upcoming Bengali film Mandobasar Galpo, Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent got to know many new facets about the role that she plays in the film. Excerpts..


Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- You play a film director in the film. Tell us something about the role.

Paoli Dam- I play the role of Ahana Sen who is an acclaimed film maker. She loses her beloved, her lover which becomes a source of tragedy in her life. She stays away from work. However due to a friend Dr. Sayantan Chowdhury, (played by Parambrata), she is made to again enter the mainstream and do her work. Is she able to do it? Watch the film to know more (laughs).

You play a film maker. How was the experience?

Paoli Dam- It was a wonderful experience. This is the first time I play a character of a film maker. The thing that caught my attention more was the fact that the psychological side of the lady has been shown more than the professional side. What trauma she had to undergo due to the loss and the effects it had on her life has been shown well.


This is the first time that you have worked with Tathagata Banerjee. How was he as a director?

Paoli Dam- Well, it was a good experience. The film is a thriller and he has added enough twists and turns in the film to keep the audiences hooked.

From Kaalbela to Mandobasar Galpo, you have worked with Parambrata in so many films. How was it again shooting with him?

Paoli Dam- We understand each other so well now. The comfort level that we have in real life shows on screen too!! As always, I had a good time shooting with Parambrata.

The music has been getting positive reviews. Which is your favorite track in the film?

Paoli Dam- (smiles) This is a difficult question!! I love the songs of Anupam and Annwesha very much. The songs help in taking the story forward. Not a single song is there all of a sudden. It all blends in well with the narrative.

Wishing Paoli Dam all the best for Mandobasar Galpo which releases on 24th of March!!
