Ace director Srijit Mukherji has been gathering rave reviews for his films like Autograph, Baishe Srabon, Rajkahini and others. The director is back with his new film Zulfiqar which will be releasing during the upcoming Durga Puja.
The film portrays the story of the much loved man Zulfiqar Ahmed, who happens to be the most prominent member of The Syndicate – a powerful organization which oversees most of the happenings in the heart of the city. However, the system takes a nosedive when his closest friends and compatriots connive against him, to fulfill their own sinister motives. An epic tale of brotherhood and hatred, friendship and betrayal, ‘Zulfiqar’ traces the meteoric rise and fall of the members of the Syndicate and their struggle for power.
A twin adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classic plays – Julius Caesar and Antony Cleopatra, ‘Zulfiqar’ will revive the unforgettable characters of Shakespeare and their extraordinary lives. Set in present day Kolkata, Zulfiqar explores the notorious underbelly of the city of joy, where the shipping Mafia gets their claw into a large part of city’s economy and politics.
The film boasts of a stellar cast consisting of Prosenjit Chatterjee, Dev, Parambrata Chatterjee, Ankush Hazra, Nusrat Jahan, Paoli Dam, Jisshu Sengupta, Kaushik Sen, June Maliah, Rahul Banerjee and Kyra Dutt.
The trailer of the film was launched recently and has gone down extremely well with the audience. Two songs namely Ek purono masjide and Aami Aajkal bhalo achi have also been released. Written, composed and sung by Roy himself, “Aami Aajkal Bhalo Aachi’ has a soulful composition which will leave you mesmerized as you go deep into retrospection. Ek Purono Masjide the second song of the film have been sung by Nachiketa and composed by Anupam Roy. Poignant lyrics that beautifully weave the sheer rusticity of human plight, aptly depict the overwhelming sense of betrayal and helplessness.
‘Zulfiqar’ is scheduled to release on 7th October.
