Team Byomkesh o Chiriakhana at 17th Birthday Celebration of Red Hot Chilli Pepper


To celebrate Kolkata’s eternal love for Chinese, Red Hot Chilli Pepper (located at Ballygunje Circular Road) opened its doors on 20th September 1999 and has successfully completed its journey of seventeen years.

The event saw the presence of director Anjan Dutt, Jisshu Sengupta, Kanchan Mullick, Priyanka, Sayoni Ghosh, Saswata Chatterjee, Kanchana Moitra, Neel Mukherjee, music director Neel Dutt and others.


Speaking about his role in the film, Saswata Chatterjee said “I play Ajit in the film, Byomkesh’s friend and an ally during times of need. I know Jisshu for a long time and I have worked with him before. So it was a cake walk for me. As for working with Anjan da, he is a different man every day which is a great thing for us as the actors. He is an enigma”.


Priyanka who plays the role of Bonolokhi in the film did not reveal much about her character but however mentioned that the audience will love the role that she plays in the movie. “I have always wanted to do roles that I have not done before. I am grateful that I have been getting such roles. Playing a negative character will be a challenge for me as an actress. I am thankful to God that I am an actress because I can be so many people in one lifetime. This is great” said the actress.


Jisshu Sengupta who plays Byomkesh in the film said “I have worked with Anjan da before. The way he portrays Byomkesh on screen has been liked by the audience very much. I am thankful that I have also been accepted in the role”.

The evening saw the team of Byomkesh o Chiriakhana cut the cake to celebrate the seventeen years completion of this food joint.

First look of Upcoming Kolkata Bengali film Baghini Launched; The Tale of an Ordinary Girl and Her Ascent to Power


The first look launch of the upcoming Bengali film Baghini took place in the august presence of director Nehal Dutta and the cast members of the film.


The film Baghini tells the story of a girl named Indira Bandopadhyay who hails from a middle class family. She is much influenced by the thoughts and ideologies of her father. From a very small age, she protests against any wrong doing. When a rich individual’s car hits her friend and tries to go away to avoid the doctor bills, she protests against it. She makes the person pay the bills for her friend who was hurt by the car. Slowly she grows up and joins a national political party. But she understands this will not solve the problem of the people of Bengal. Hence she comes back to Bengal and forms her own party. What happens next is what the film all about. Baghini in short is the tale of an ordinary girl who becomes extraordinary.


Speaking at the occasion, director Nehal Dutta said “The audience may relate the film with the present Chief Minister of West Bengal. As a film maker I do not mind that relation. However, I will like to point out that there are no slangs used against any party. This is just a film showcasing the struggles of an ordinary girl who becomes extraordinary by her merits and will power”.


The actors in the film are all newcomers and the only veteran actor in the film is Phalguni Chatterjee. Director Nehal Dutta said “I wanted someone without any image. Hence the dire need to cast new faces without any image pressure on them. Hence I cast Ananya for showing the young age of the lady, Alokananda for the middle age and Ruma Chakroborty for showing the lady in her present age”.

The film is slated for release in April.
