In the august presence of Sudeshna Roy, Abhijit Guha, Pujarini Ghosh, Abhijit Bhattacharya, Abhigyan Mukherjee, Sushmita Bhattacharya, the poster launch of the upcoming Bengali film Chitra took place at The Press Club recently.
“When I first met him he looked like a kid straight out of school. But when I started talking with him and heard the synopsis of the film I understood that behind the kid like exterior, is a mature person with a mature level of understanding. I have also seen his diploma film which had won awards. What I liked about it is it had a good narrative and was not bogged down by the usual process. The film was well made and I realized that there was a maker in him. While working with him and the other young actors in the film, I learnt how the young people think and act” said Sudeshna Roy.
The film Chitra is essentially a love story of Neel and Chitra with women empowerment issues at the backdrop. Neel is a NRI while Chitra is a college student. Society plays the role of the villain. What happens to their love story? That the film alone will answer.
Sudeshna Roy plays the role of the aunt of the two sisters in the film. “My character is a Non-Bengali lady who is the aunt of the sisters. She also acts as their guardian. She is a lady with a modern outlook” added the actress.
Actress Pujarini Ghosh who plays the role of Chitra in the film was also full of praises for the young director. Looking sexy in the short red dress that she wore at the event, the actress was also keeping her fingers crossed for her first lead role in a Tollywood film.
The film is slated for release soon. We will all have to wait to watch how the 23 year old director has handled a topic as grave and serious as women empowerment in the film Chitra.
