Scientist-Rudrashankar-poems

Rudrashankar, one of the leading young scientists from India has been making the country proud internationally with his work. His career in Molecular Biology took him away from Kolkata to the shores of Europe and America. This feeling of homesickness that developed during his stay abroad led him to write wonderful poetry. His poetry has been translated and made into a music album titled Achena Hathe. The album was released at The Press Club in the presence of Pratik Chowdhury, Rupankar, Jayati Chakraborty and others.

The album has eight songs which have been sung by Jayati Chakraborty, Rupankar, Pratik Chowdhury and Baisakhi. The songs in the album are a mirror of the poet’s passion for life, love for his homeland and about his loneliness at staying away from his motherland. “The poems have a lyrical quality and a natural rhythm to them. This has helped in the conversion of the poems into songs easily” said Rupankar while speaking with Sholoana Bangaliana at the music launch ceremony.

Rudrashankar said “There is a notion that people coming from the science background are incapable of writing poetry or understanding the essence of such poetic works. I wanted to bring about a change in this perception and tell people that Poetry is everywhere; it is not confined to any object. Being a scientist, I am passionate about writing poetry and I have simply given vent to my thoughts”.

Priced at Rs. 125, the music album will be a good addition to your music list for sure. Afterall, not always do you get to listen to a scientist’s poems in a music album!

Upcoming Bengali Film ‘Hercules’ Music Album Launched in Kolkata; Promotional Song by Arijit Singh

 Upcoming-Bengali-Film-Hercules-Music-Launch

What happens when a weak person suddenly gains the strength to face his oppressors and answer them back? Sounds interesting, right? This is what is the premise of the upcoming Bengali film Hercules. The music launch of this Bengali film took place at Hotel Hindustan international in the presence of Tollywood Hero Prasenjit Chatterjee, Parambrata Chatterjee, Diector duo Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha, Music Composer Neel Dutt, Raja Narayan Deb, Usha Uthup, Mohua Lahiri and many others.

The story of the film is about Harakailash alias Haru alias Hercules who lives in a dilapidated house. He is an orphan and he considers the house to be his parents. For him, all the memories of his parents revolve around this house. He considers the kitchen to be his mother and goes for consolation there whenever someone taunts him. Trouble starts when the local goons under the leadership of Mosh threaten him to sell off this house. He declines to do so. What happens next? Is he able to fight off the goons or does he sell the house? The film answers all the questions.

“When we thought about the casting, Parambrata’s name came to our mind first. This is because he is an extremely good looking fellow but he walks often in a lanky gait. This fitted the role of Harakailash. Casting him in this role will be a good challenge for him as an actor too. Hence we thought we should get him on board in this project” said director Abhijit Guha.

Music plays an equally important role in carrying forward the narrative and highlighting the plight of the protagonist. Hercules has six songs composed by Neel Dutt. Boba Rajkumar is the only song composed and sung by Arijit Singh. The lyrics in this film are by Anindya Bose, Kaushik Ganguly, Prosen and Souvik Mishra. Somlata, June Banerjee, Saptak, Zeenia and others have lent their voices to the songs in the film.

After Teen Yaari Kotha and cross Connection, Saswata Chatterjee will be again seen working in this film directed by Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha in the role of the local goon Mosh. “When I was contacted for the role, I found this to be very interesting. Why will a person be named Mosh? The look has been taken care of by the costume designer but still I felt something was missing. It is then that I realized that I will do something worthwhile to establish the name. Mosh chews gum similar to that of cows chewing grass during leisure. This helped me to establish the name of Mosh. However I will like to add that Mosh is not the typical villain. He is a comic villain. He can start crying if you chide him” said the actor while talking to Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent.

Parambrata who plays the role of Harakailash in the film stated that this is one of the roles that he has done in the past two-three years which has really touched his heart.

With an interesting storyline, a great cast, Hercules is slated for release on the 22nd of August.
