Even for roles like the one of Lalon Fokir that I did in Moner Manush, fashion is important. Hence I came up with the idea that the budding designers of this institute can design some dresses for me. In this way they will be exposed to the Bengali film industry and we will also get to see some upcoming talents in this field of fashion”. The budding designers will be able to submit their designs from January till Saraswati Puja. The actor who had a show in Sunderbans had to leave early.

Bangla Theater viewing to be revived with new website launch

theater launch

Bangla Theater has been an essential ingredient for the Bengali culture. This has been continuing for decades. However the art medium is facing stiff competition from other mediums like television and cinema. To revive the interest in this medium and to engage more people in watching of theater, a website was launched recently named www.bengalitheatre.com. The website was inaugurated by veteran actor Chinmoy Roy and Kheyali Dastidar.

Chinmoy Roy

The website is an initiative of Golven Signature. The theater in Bengal had been popular at least for the last two hundred years and this effort of Golven Signature plans to bring back the ancient charm associated with theater by reviving it. Mr. Abhishek Chowdhury, the promoter of Golven Signature said, “With the advent of serials and cinema, theater viewing has taken a back seat. With the help of this website, we will be able to keep the Bengali audience updated about the theater happenings. From details of actors, actresses, directors to reviews of theaters to places where the shows are staged, everything will be made available in this website. This will be an all-in-one portal for the theater loving audience”.

Chinmoy Roy highlighted on the fact this is not the golden age of theatre. The period when Girish Chandra, Nati Binodini used to act in theatres was known as the golden age of theatre in Bengal. “The presence of people like Rudra Prasad Sengupta is however a boon for Bengali theatre. It is due to the initiative of these individuals that Bengali theatre still survives even in the age of films like Mon Mane Naa and serials like Bou Kotha Kou. The main problem is that people do not have the time now to go and watch theatres. They are very busy. Hence they lap up everything shown in the idiot box. With the help of this website, people hopefully will again take interest in theatre”.

The website promises to bring back the glory of the earlier age and hence we can hope that the glory of this at medium will again be restored.
