They have done films like Alo and Chander Bari together. The duo will be again working together in the upcoming Bengali film Bhalobasar Bari. The duo I am referring to is director Tarun Majumdar and actress Rituparna Sengupta. The director who is returning to directing films after a span of eight years (his last released film was Chander Bari in 2007) is busy shooting for this film with Rituparna Sengupta in an important role.
Based on a story by Prochet Gupta, Bhalobasar Bari is the story of Buli who is the eldest daughter of Bhabatosh, a middle aged clerk working in a jute mill. Bhabatosh suddenly loses his job and this leads to Buli taking up a job at a travel agency. She meets Kalyan at the travel agency. He is a jovial man on the outside but he is a victim of a personal tragedy. How the two individuals console each other in their personal tragedies and how they continue in the struggle of life is what the film all about.
The shooting of the film is currently taking place in various parts of the city. Rituparna Sengupta who tasted great success with Alo in 2003 was ecstatic to be working again with the National Award winning director.
The music of the film has been composed by Santana Basu. Pratik, Arjun Chakrabarty, Sraboni, Rajat Gangyopadhyay and Sarbari will be seen in important roles in the film.
A National Award winning director spearheading the project along with a stellar cast surely promises that the film will be a great entertainer.
