“We have no restriction of age. This has been done because we feel anyone can have passion for music at any age. We have also opened branches at Behala, Salt Lake, Southern Avenue and Nager Bazar so that people do not have to travel to take the classes. My father used to always say that you also have to give back to the society. This is my way of giving back to the society and following the path that my father advocated” said Bickram Ghosh.

The subjects taught at the music academy include Tabla, Hindustani Vocal, Western Vocal, Bharatnatyam, Kathak, Odissi, Western drums, Contemporary and creative dance and others. Apart from the conventional teaching methods, the academy will be going online shortly and also be introducing certificate courses.

Video: Trailer launch of Eagoler Chokh

Director Arindam Sil is back yet again with the much awaited sequel of Shabor series, Eagoler Chokh (The eye of the eagle). The theatrical trailer of the film was launched in the august presence of director Arindam Sil, Arunima Ghosh, Ushoshi Sengupta, June Maliah, Subhrojit Dutta, Saswata Chatterjee, Anirban Bhattacharya, Bickram Ghosh and others.

Eagoler-Chokh-trailer

Based on Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay’s novel of the same name, Inspector Shabor Dasgupta and his assistant Nanda will be seen inspecting the murder of a young woman named Nandini. As they delve deeper to solve the crime, Shabor discovers a dark side of human psychology and also is able to solve the complexities of his own mind.

Speaking at the trailer launch, director Arindam Sil said “After the love that the first Shabor film received, it was quite natural to make another film. Shabor is a complex character himself and that is what makes him so different from the other Bengali detectives that people adore. People hopefully will like this film as this is an edge of the seat thriller”.

Gaurab-Eagoler-Chokh

Gaurab Chakraborty plays the role of a sub-inspector who idolizes Shabor Dasgupta. “I had a great time shooting the film. For my character, I just followed what the director asked me to do. And that is how I did the role. And yes it is pretty interesting to first play a detective in a television series and now be a part of a detective film” said the actor.

June-Eagoler-Chokh

June Maliah who plays the role of a psychologist revealed that she may have less screen time than the earlier film on Shabor, but her role was nevertheless interesting. She plays a psychologist who helps Shabor.  “Arindam and Apu (Saswata) are my oldest friends in the industry. Working with them is always a pleasure. However when Arindam wants a particular shot in a particular manner, he will ask you to do so very gently. This is what I like about him. Unless he gets that shot, he will not settle for less” revealed the actress.

Riya who is making her debut with this film has a very serious character who speaks very less in the film. “I am glad I made my debut with his film. He is very helpful and I will like to work with him yet again” said the young actress.

Arunima-Eagoler-Chokh

Saswata Chatterjee, Jaya Ahsan, Paayel Sarkar, Arunima Ghosh, June Maliah, Riya Banik, Subhrojit Dutta, Gaurab Chakraborty, Mou Baidya and others will be seen in important roles in the film.

The DOP of the film is Soumik Haldar. The script and dialogues are by Arindam Sil and Padmanabha Dasgupta. Sujay Datta Ray has edited the film while the costumes have been designed by Sabarni Das.

Eagoler Chokh will release on 12th August across the state.
