After the stupendous success of the film Chander Pahar, Shree Venkatesh Films announced the much awaited sequel titled Amazon Obhijaan. Featuring Dev in the lead role, the film will hit the screens next Durga Puja in 2017. Previously slated to be a Christmas 2016 release, Amazon Obhijaan has now been rescheduled to much-demanded slot of Puja 2017 release as the film requires time to perfect its visual treats.

However the film loving audience need not feel sad. Shree Venkatesh Films has decided to treat its audience with another sleuth flick this winter with Byomkesh Pawrbo directed by Arindam Sil. Scheduled now for a Christmas release, the action-packed Byomkesh story stars Abir Chatterjee,Sohini Sarkar, Ritwick Chakraborty , Kaushik Sen,Rajatava Dutta,Sayantika Banerjee, June Maliah and others in pivotal roles.

Amazon Obhijaan has to undergo through multiple stages in its special effects and the CGI of the film is yet to be completed. Marking the 100th production venture of Shree Venkatesh Films, Amazon Obhijaan will see Shankar exploring the length and breadth of South America, including the vast jungle of Amazon in search of the mysterious land of gold.

From magnificent production design to the best CGI technology, the mounting of Amazon Obhijaan is said to be a milestone not only in Tollywood but also in the Indian film scenario.

By the time Amazon Obhijaan gets ready, enjoy the Christmas with your very own Byomkesh Bakshi.

She is also an equally well known actress on the small screen with serials like Nir bhanga jhor, Binni dhaner khoi, Ishti kutum in her kitty. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the actress in an exclusive chat about her upcoming Bengali film Byomkesh o Chiriakhana which is slated for release during the Pujas.

Priyanka Dutta, Sholoana Bangaliana- Another film on Byomkesh and that too releasing during the Pujas, you surely must be excited?

Ankita Chakraborty- Yes, I am excited. This is like a double treat for me. Ma Durga is coming and it is during this time that my film is releasing and I am so glad. What a good timing!!

Can you tell us something about the role you play in the film?

Ankita Chakraborty- I play Damayanti, one of the prime suspect in Byomkesh o Chiriakhana. I won’t reveal much about it now as that will take away the suspense from it. I know many have read the story and they will know it. For those who have not read it yet, let it be a surprise.


How was the experience of working with Anjan Dutt again?

Ankita Chakraborty- The experience was good. He is a good director and the fact that he is such a new individual everyday is what amazes me. The films on Byomkesh are getting good response, which is also a positive thing for the team that works on the project.

Have you read the story or seen the film that was made on this story years ago?

Ankita Chakraborty- I have not read the story but I have seen the film. Anjan da said that if I had not read the story, then I do not have to read it for the film. The script follows the story only and slight changes are made. Hence following the script is enough.

You have acted in some detective films now. Given a chance, will you like to play the role of a woman detective in the future?

Ankita Chakraborty- Well, I have not yet received any such role. But yes, I like experimenting with characters I play onscreen. If I am given such a role, I will surely give it a try.


Do you have any dream role that you want to portray on screen?

Ankita Chakraborty- I have done a handful of films and mostly with Anjan Dutt and Aniket Chattopadhyay. I am free to experiment with the roles offered to me. I am waiting for such a meaty role.

Many actresses are trying their luck in Bollywood. Have you given it a thought?

Ankita Chakraborty- I have a wish of doing roles in Bollywood films. I will try too. Roles which will suit me and my personality are the ones which I will do in the films.

A very cliché yet an important question- What are your expectations from the film, Byomkesh o Chiriakhana?

Ankita Chakraborty- Though I have not watched the film completely yet I am hopeful that it will have a good run at the box office. This is simply because the films on Byomkesh do well.

We wish the talented actress all the best for her upcoming Bengali film!!

Saswata Chatterjee and Abir Chatterjee Talk about change and continuity in Bengali detective films at Tata Steel Kolkata Literary Meet

Tata Steel Kolkata Literary Meet 2015

“Oh!! From Bob Biswas to Shabor Dasgupta- this has been a great promotion for me. A murderer in one film to an inspector in Kolkata Police is a remarkable feat indeed” said actor Saswata Chatterjee. Abir Chatterjee and Saswata Chatterjee engaged in a candid conversation with eminent journalist Gautam Bhattacharya about the change and continuity in Bengali detective films. Abir Chatterjee has played the role of Feluda and Byomkesh Bakshi while Saswata has played the role of Shabor Dasgupta.


The recent trend among the audience who has been accepting the detective films more than the other commercial films can be attributed to the fact that there is a literary connect already established, felt actor Abir Chatterjee. “It may also be due to the fact that those stories have better tales to narrate to the audience. This may be ascribed to the success of the detective films among the audiences. Moreover the number of films made in Tollywood is huge. The audience may become confused as to which film to see and in the process many good films are often not watched by them. The film makers and the distributors must take care to focus on the quality rather than on the quantity now” said Abir Chatterjee.


When asked whether Saswata Chatterjee will like to be cast in roles like Byomkesh Bakshi or Feluda, the actor replied with a smile “I want to be cast in almost any role that can be thought of. However Feluda will not be right for me as Feluda is over six feet in height and I am not”.


The two actors who had worked together in the Byomkesh films directed by Anjan Dutt described their work experience as special and worth cherishing. “In the last film that released on Byomkesh Bakshi, I missed Apu da as he did not have many scenes with me” added Abir Chatterjee.

The conversation ended with the two actors answering questions from the audiences.
