Video: Bengali Film Sathe Jokhon Prakhar Rudra Announcement
The announcement of the Bengali film Sathe Jokhon Prakhar Rudra took place recently in the august presence of the director Abir Biswas, Saswata Chatterjee, Shataf Figar, Sampurna Lahiri, Riecha Sharma, Subhashis Mukherjee, Mousumi Bhattacharya and others.
The name Prakhar Rudra might bring back memories of a sleuth Prakhar Rudra which was made famous by Lalmohan Ganguly aka Jatayu. However this Prakhar Rudra bears no connection with that character and the name is just coincidental, revealed the debutant director.
The film Sathe Jokhon Prakhar Rudra is about Colonel Prakhar Rudra who stays at 10, Krishna Mallick Lane. He stays there alone after the death of his wife and kid in a militant attack at Jamshedpur Army School 2003. Brishti is a five year old girl who lives with her mother Meghla who is a school teacher by profession. Brishti has weird dreams and she likes to paint the things that she dreams of. Prakhar Rudra meets the girl and finds resemblance with his dead daughter. He takes her to a psychiatrist. After counseling, the reason for this problem is found to be that of reincarnation. How will Prakhar Rudra solve the mystery?
Subhashis Mukherjee plays the role of GoGo in the film. “My character’s name is Gouranga Goldar and hence in short it is called GoGo. How this character will make me run in the film is what the audiences will get to see. In recent times a huge number of films are being made on detectives. This is a new detective and this will be an interesting film to work on” said the actor.
Shataf Figar who will be playing the role of Prakhar Rudra said “This is an interesting character that I will be playing in this film. It is a great honor for me to work again with Apu da (Saswata Chatterjee) after the film 89. We hope to break the monotony and bring in certain freshness with this film”.
Saswata Chatterjee plays the role of an owner of a tea estate. “Revealing much about a thriller is not good at this moment. When I was approached for the film by Abir, what I liked about him is his passion. He said that he wanted to make a good film and create a good impression in the minds of the audience. He was also practical when he said that he did not claim to create huge box office record with this film. I liked that very much and hence I agreed to do this film” said the actor.
Saswata Chatterjee (Bhaskar Mukherjee), Shataf Figar (Prakhar Rudra), Sampurna Lahiri (Priya), Mousumi Bhattacharya (Ankhi), Chandan Sen (Chandrashekhar) and Subhashis Mukherjee (Gouranga Goldar) will be seen in important roles in the film.
Produced by Egaal Mmotion Pictures, the film is going to start shooting soon.

It will be a complete family entertainer to be enjoyed with your full family”.
