Actor Saswata Chatterjee as Bhanu Bandopadhyay in Jomaloye Jibonto Bhanu, a new Bengali film! August 26 is Bhanu Bandopadhyay's birthday.
The Bengali industry has rarely had a character actor like him, whose dialogues make Bengalis laugh forever.
When I hear his name, I remember the movies like Galpo Holeo Satti, Ashite Ashiona, Personal Assistant, Bhanu Pelo Lottery, Bhanu Goenda Jahar Assistant, Adrishya Manush, Hospital etc.
Yes, we are talking about Silver Screen, the unforgettable actor on the screen, Bhanu Banerjee. Even though times have changed, the memory of actor Bhanu Bandyopadhyay is still vivid in the minds of Bengalis.
The dialogue Masima Malpo Khamu from Sharey Chuattor is still spoken by Bengalis today. A new film was announced on his 101st birth anniversary.
Which is called Jomaloye Jibonto Bhanu. The basis of such a story film, where the scenes of the actor's memorable film will be there, along with the memories of his contemporary legendary actors, will also become colourful in the hearts of the audience.
Saswata Chatterjee will be seen in the role of Bhanu Bandopadhyay, and Sayantan Ghoshal will be directing the film.
The screenplay and dialogues were written by Krishnendu Chattopadhyay. Somnath Kundu is in charge of makeup.
When asked about the film, director Sayantan Ghoshal said, Like many Bengalis, I am also a fan of Bhanu Bandopadhyay.
I want to make the film touch that Bengali emotion. I will touch on the film Jomaloye Jibonto Bhanu, and I am going to make a present-day film regarding various stories.
Where Bhanu Bandopadhyay is a character. Saswata Chatterjee will be in that role. We set the look. His results created a lot of excitement.
This film will be in the fantasy-comedy genre. It is our tribute to him. Therefore, on the occasion of our 101st birthday, we will have a connection between this announcement and this film of Jomaloye Jibonto Bhanu.
I think that will hit the nostalgia button. We are now writing the story with great care. I want to take some time. I don't want to say too much about the story right now. I will start shooting early next year.
Director Sayantan Ghoshal has earlier worked with Saswata Chatterjee in Swastik Sanket. He played the role of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
What is the reason for casting him again in this film?
Sayantan Ghoshal smiled and said, Forgetting about the features, first of all, Saswata Chatterjee is an amazing actor.
That's why he was taken. Besides, we will take the help of prosthetic makeup. There is Somnath Kundu. Who works very well.
And Saswata Chatterjee himself is a fan of Bhanu Bandopadhyay. I still see his films. We are doing a lot of research, revisiting his films.
We want to make this film in such a way that our parents, as well as the current generation, will enjoy it.
Produced by Sumankumar Das, with music by Raja Narayan Dev. Apart from this film, two films by Sayantan Ghoshal have been completed.
For example, Tienda and Hirokgorer Hire. Besides, he has recently completed the shooting of the film Rabindra Kabya Rahasya with Ritwick Chakraborty and Srabanti Chatterjee.
Apart from these three films, Sayantan Ghoshal's web series Raktokarabi is waiting to come on Zee 5. But right now, director Sayantan Ghoshal's focus is completely on Jomaloye Jibonto Bhanu.
