The Junction, the railway-themed bar at Taj Bengal, brings for the patrons a new beverage -‘Baruipur Guava Martini’. Baruipur, located in the South 24 parganas district of West Bengal, is famous for ‘lathi-fights’ between zamindar houses, Gajan utsav, and the tropical fruit-Guava. Guava is also known as the ‘apple of tropics’ and is so popular in India that it is difficult to believe that the fruit is not native to our country.
It is cultivated in almost all the districts but Baruipur is prominent for the yellow-skinned-white-fleshed-tasty-good-quality guavas. Generations of people residing in this region tell their ancestral stories of enjoying the fruit during the ‘Gajan utsav’ in the mid-19th century.
The complexity of this tropical concoction uses the botanicals of Gin and the sweet nectar of fresh pink guava to provide a drink that in all sense of the word represents Baruipur!
Available at The Junction, Taj Bengal, Kolkata, the cost of this drink will be Rs 700 inclusive of taxes.
K-Se is a New Kolkata Bangla movie and the directorial debut of Saugata Biswas who aims at making a unique mark in the Bengali film industry. The film is about how the rapists of a young, college going girl pay for their crime that the conventional judicial system failed to acknowledge. Shot in different locations, this film is expected to bear a different flag in the mainstream Bengali film industry not only because of its concept but also due to its release at such a time when the society is constantly witnessing horrors and bloodshed. Saugata Biswas’s directorial skill has been complemented with the dialogues and screenplay of Tilak Acharya and the music from Sandip Singha.
The story of K-Say has Uma (Richa Das) at its center. Uma studies in an engineering college, far from Kolkata and stays at the college hostel. Being a bit introvert in nature Uma has only a few friends, Neeraj (Avijit) being closest of them all. One evening while returning from a party Uma get stranded on a dark road after her vehicle succumbs to mechanical failure. Taking the advantage of her plight in a not so populated area four men offers her a lift, but actually rapes her and leaves her on the road to die. After spending a few days at the hospital Uma succumbs to death and her fight for justice goes denied as the police investigation fails to table any hard evidence against the perpetrators. A few years pass by and all the four criminals continue living a happy life until each of them gets a girlfriend. These four women are separate in nature but always avoid meeting together. In a turn of events, the boys die one by one, though no one can cite a feasible explanation for their death. Though Neeraj thinks that Uma, who died long has returned in some form and are responsible for the deaths of the criminals, the reality remains hidden in the climax of the film.
Supernatural elements have not been explored that much in Bengali film industry and K-Say aims at doing exactly that. According to Saugata Biswas, the film is a blend of supernatural essence and an underlying truth that crime never goes unpaid. With increasing social violence and horror, delivering the right justice is more important than ever and this film underscores this importance in unambiguous terms.
The shooting of the film was conducted mainly in three locations― Durgapur, Kolkata and Baruipur, a suburb of Kolkata. It is noteworthy that while songs play an important role in Indian films, K-Say has only one song, though several unique background scores are there to complement the situation in the film. The concept in the brainchild of non other than the producer of the film Mrigendra M. Dhar himself who had a long cherished desire to invest in such a film that would have a social impact.
Though at times the storyline of K-Say resembles some real life incidents, it would be inept to term it as a direct translation of those incidents. This New Kolkata Bangla movie is set to release in the first week of September and is expected to become a huge success in the box office.
