Colors Bangla Series Taranath Tantrik Brings Actor Tota Roy Chowdhury Back to Small Screen


Based on eminent Bengali writer Bibhutibhusan Bandopadhyay’s story, Taranath Tantrik, the new Colors Bangla serial of the same name started airing from 13th June. Sholoana Bangaliana correspondent caught up with the director and the cast in between shots at Belgachia Rajbari.

Taranath Tantrik is a literary character introduced by Bibhutibhusn Bandopadhyay and then popularized by his son Taradas Bandopadhyay. The story book character has been adapted to television while making suitable changes to suit the needs of the story telling. “There are many stories where the suspect narrates the story. But we cannot show it like that on television. Hence we have done slight changes so as to make Taranath important in the story. We also have linked up the stories. One story leads to the other. So you cannot simply leave one story and then see the next episode” said director Soumik Chattopadhyay.


Playing the lead character of Taranath is actor Tota Roy Chowdhury. Speaking at the press meet, the actor said “I never thought that I will be selected for this role. Hats off to the team for actually thinking that I could carry off this role!! There is a sense of adventure in the character. Despite being such a daredevil character, he gets scolded by his wife at home. In short, he may be the person to fight the evil powers, but he is the typical Bengali husband and father at home”.

Sougata Bannerji will be seen as Bibhuti in the serial. “I am very greedy for enacting characters with a literary background. I did the role of Ajit, Byomkesh Bakshi’s assistant in the television series. That was a long cherished dream. And now to become the assistant and the voice of scientific reason for Taranath is a great role for me” said the actor.


Poulomi Basu plays the role of Taranath’s wife Promila. “She is the typical housewife. She supports her husband and takes care of the family. However she was afraid when danger lurks for Taranath” said actress Poulomi Basu.


Singer Jojo will be seen playing the role of Matu Pagli in the serial. “I have a unique look as you can see. I am the personification of positive powers and it is I who give the powers to Taranath. She also provides him with the knowledge about the art of Tantra. However she does not age” said Jojo with a wink.


Subhashish Mukherjee will be seen in the role of Kapalik, the strongest representation of evil in the series. Betal, a fierce spirit captured by Kapalik will be essayed by actress Rupa Bhattacharya.

The script of Taranath Tantrik is by Soukarya Ghoshal while the dialogues are by Dipanjan Chandra. The camera is by Alok Maity.

The director also added that Taranath Tantrik is not a serial but a series.

Taranath Tantrik is shown on Colors Bangla at 8pm from Monday to Saturday. Do not miss it!!
