Video: Poster Launch of Dhananjoy
The setting is a court scene and Dhananjoy in cuffs is seen entering the court room. Are you amazed? Sounds unbelievable? But this is what happened during the first look and trailer launch of the upcoming Bengali film Dhananjoy. Director Arindam Sil sat in the seat of the judge and introduced all the characters of his upcoming Bengali film Dhananjoy.
The film is based on a real life incident. Dhananjoy Chatterjee, a security guard was executed and hanged to death after serving imprisonment for fourteen long years. He was executed based on circumstantial evidence and the deceased victim’s mother’s statement. The judgement created much uproar. The film is set in 2008 four years after the execution took place.
Speaking at the occasion, director Arindam Sil said “During the research we found out that the execution of Dhananjoy was based on inconclusive circumstantial evidence and there was no direct evidence. Even many reports that got published in the media were also incorrect”.
The film has been shot in a documentary style. The music has been composed by Bickram Ghosh.
Mimi Chakraborty said “I was quite young when the incident happened. Arindam da gave me a huge book of research for me to go through so that I could understand the character that I was given to play. The book was so thick. And hence I read as much I could and got a grasp of the character. I am glad Arindam da gave me this role”.
Anirban Bhattarcharya (Dhananjoy), Mimi Chakraborty (Kabya Sinha), Sudipta Chakraborty (Surbhi Parekh), Paran Bandopadhyay (Dhananjoy’s father, Sashi Chatterjee), Kaushik Sen (Shibraj Choudhury, Kabya’s senior advocate), Mir and others will be seen in the film.
The film is slated for release on 11th August.
