After ‘Shankar’, its turn for ‘Amal’ now and ‘Chander Pahar’ is definitely not the end of experimentation for Dev. This Tollywood commercial superstar is trying his level best to play characters, which are offbeat by nature and also working with Directors, who are considered to be original storytellers. Following this career strategy, Tollywood heartthrob Dev will now feature as the main protagonist ‘Amal’ in Director Aniruddha Roy Choudhury’s crime thriller “Buno Haansh” (The wild Duck). After Anuranan, Antoheen & Aparajeeta Tumi, Director Aniruddha Roy Choudhury has started shooting for his new Bengali movie, titled ‘Buno Haansh’, which is a cinematic version of a novel by the renowned Bengali writer Mr. Samaresh Majumder.
After playing ‘Shankar’ in director Kamaleswar Mukherjee’s ‘Chander Pahar’, yet again Dev has taken up the stiff challenge of acting in a movie, which is very different from the films, which he usually does. The urban Bengali audience would now see Dev acting in another movie, which is expected to be offbeat and classy as Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury (lovingly called Tony in Tollywood) is mostly known to make films that are classy and cerebral and people who are close to him, know that Tony does not believe in the easy theory of copying the South Indian movies in Bangla. Aniruddha rather believes in the richness & cinematic possibilities, which exists in the modern Bengali literature. Anirduddha earlier has directed ‘Aparajita Tumi’ , which was adapted from a novel, written by the late. Sunil Gangopadhyay and featured Tollywood Hero Prosenjit Chatterjee in the lead. This time Aniruddha has chosen ‘Buno Haansh’, which is an official adaptation of a novel by Samaresh Majumdar. It’s heard that the novelist Mr. Majumdar has guided the director Aniruddha Roy Choudhury in finalizing the screenplay of Buno Haansh, as few changes seemed essential for its cinematic transformation and unlike many other filmmakers, Aniruddha didn’t want to keep the original novelist in the dark even after buying the film rights of the story.
‘Buno Haansh’ has got all the ingredients that are essential for a classy crime thriller. Amal (Dev) is an unemployed youth, who originally belongs to a small town in West Bengal. Amal incidentally reaches Bangkok for employment and unknowingly gets connected to an Underworld drug peddling racket. When Amal comes to know the truth, he finds himself hopelessly tangled within the clutches of the ruthless crime industry. What happens when an innocent, hard working and average Bengali young guy finds himself brutally cornered in a foreign land, where the punishment for Drug peddling is nothing else, but the capital punishment makes the rest of the story. The events which occur after Amal realizes that he has become the part of a dangerous game forms the climax of the story.
Previously the number one Tollywood actress Koel Mallick was selected to play the female lead in Buno Haansh, but she stepped back due to date problems. Finally, actress Tanusree Chakraborty, who acted in films like ‘Bedroom’, ‘Uro Chithi’ and ‘Koyekti Meyer Golpo’, was roped in to play the female lead opposite Dev.
Veteran Bengali actress and mother of Raima Sen, Moon Moon Sen will be reappearing on big screen with this film after nine years, her last film being Bow Barracks Forever by Anjan Dutt which released in 2004. Arindam Sil is playing the owner of a Bangkok based Massage Parlour.
Renowned Tollywood actor Arindam Sil is also operating as the executive producer of the movie and the film is with its lavish budget is expected to cross many previous financial records. Shantanu Moitra has composed the music of Buno Haansh. Anindya Chatterjee (Bangla Band Chandrabindoo fame) has recorded a song for Buno Haansh and Bollywood singers Shreya Ghoshal and Papon have also recorded songs for this film. In totality there will be five songs in the soundtrack. Director Aniruddha Roy Choudhury and executive producer Arindam Sil are currently busy finalizing shooting locations in Mumbai, Bangkok, Bangladesh and Kolkata.
