Ginnie Zindabad is about Jule who lives in a picturesque little village. This docile little boy with large bright eyes and overgrown hair regularly gets into trouble with his strict parents and Monty, the bully at school. Jule’s pet dog Lobo and a girl Mithi are his closest friends.

At the extreme end of the village there is a bridge at the end of which is a dark cave which the village folk call “Jujur Guha” (demon’s cave). It is believed that whoever crosses the bridge never returns. In a state of dejection and fit of desperation, due to Monty’s tyranny, Jule crosses the bridge unconsciously one day. He encounters a colorful ball of mist that turns into a cute Ginnie at the warmth of human touch. Jule and Ginnie thus become friends and set out to share exciting adventures. Ginnie performs magic and helps Jule deal with Monty and sort out his troubled life.

 

Ginnie Zindabad began to be aired from 9th August onwards, every Sunday at 9.30 am on Zee Bangla.

Bengali Super Hero Film TUSH Introduces the Super Hero Concept in Bengali Cinema

Bengali-superhero-film-Tush

What happens if you separate a person from his love? Eventually they reunite. Two friends shared flat and shared ideas. Both were film lovers and also loved film making and they did make a few short films together with other important members of the team. As fate would have it, professional commitments took them apart from each other as well as making films. One went to Dubai, the other went to Kathmandu. But the fire of making films was growing day by day in their bellies. And one day they eventually decided to make a film. They reunited with their former friends and film makers from college days and beyond and started working on it. They decided on the story, script, screenplay, characters, locations etc. The initial idea was a short film but it ended up as a 1 and half hour script with 40 minutes of song, 16 in number. The film is a superhero film with full VFX and action sequences which is being taken care by Colour Bar Animation Studio of Kolkata. They claim it to be the first Bengali Super Hero Film. But the most astonishing thing about this film is that the entire team is working on the pre production online! Discussing, consulting, generating ideas all by devoting time on Facebook, Twitter & WhatsApp. Truly a lesson to learn in the act of communication. Being miles apart, the team is building up an ambitious project online! What is the film about? Who are the cast? What is the crew? To know all these and much more, keep your eyes on the official page of the film TUSH, as they call it and their production, Unity Creations.

We contacted the Music director of the film Mr. Shubhodeep Roy and this is what he had to say. “Some people are destined to meet, they say. Sumit & I’ve known each other since we were kids, but never in our wildest of dreams, imagined that we would someday come together to give shape to one of our apex artistic projects, TUSH the movie. It all started with a mere phone call, when a common acquaintance reconnected Sumit & me after 10 long years. A four hour long discussion of TUSH in every possible detail, and what followed was an offer from Sumit for me to do the music for the entire movie. Our former discussion had convinced me enough to believe that TUSH was a promising film, and hence, this incredible journey started. Over the next few days, I spent in forming the core musical team that would be working with me for this movie. Now that the team was done, the first two tracks that I started making were the contemporary versions of the “Hanuman Chalisa“, and the “Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra”, which would eventually be responsible for impaling the energy and electrocution into the main action sequences of TUSH. The musical progression in these tracks is such that the more you listen to them, the more “Tandav‘ised” you get. It’s like intoxication. Nothing less than the “Bhang” effect of Shiva, with some heavy-duty Indian, African & Arabian Percussions as well as dirty distortion guitars doing the duty here. Next in line was the track, “Mujhe Pata Nahi”. Now, this is a very special song. It is instantly catchy, hardcore romantic, yet wraps that mushy feeling into a blanket of foot-tapping beats and funky musical arrangement. Those nasty basslines along with the sweet piano are an extra treat. Divyanshu Shekhar has done a phenomenal job of singing exactly what was in my mind when I had composed it. I’m glad that I discovered this guy. Amidst one of the recording sessions of “Mujhe Pata Nahi, a sudden mail from Sumit popped up containing the requirement of a new song, a funny Rap song that he intended to include in the movie. The very next moment, there was a fit of laughter in the studio when we read the lyrics of this new song. I said to myself, “Ab Mazaa Aayega”. It’s only last week that we started the recordings of this song, and seeing the way it is coming up, I believe that it will be a hip-shaker for all ages”.
