Bagha Jatin Movie Trailer:
The wait is over! Dev has unveiled the highly-awaited trailer for his upcoming period drama, "Bagha Jatin," directed by Arun Roy.
This cinematic masterpiece promises to captivate audiences across India during the auspicious occasion of Durga Puja, with a release date set for October 19, 2023.
While the promotion campaign for its Hindi release has been relatively quiet, the real test for this film's performance on a Pan-Indian scale is yet to come.
The nearly three-minute trailer masterfully portrays Dev as the legendary Indian independence activist, Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay.
Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay, a figure deeply feared by the British Empire, is depicted as a hero who prioritized the nation's welfare over his own family's.
The trailer leaves no stone unturned, excelling in various aspects, including makeup, action sequences, and a strong sense of patriotism.
Sounava Bose's dialogues stand out as remarkably powerful, while the cinematography by Gopi Bhagat and the editing by Md. Kalam, along with the music and background score by Nilayan Chatterjee, contributes to the film's overall visual and auditory brilliance.
Special recognition goes to Somnath Kundu for his authentic portrayal of Dev's appearance.
The trailer begins with a poignant moment, as Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay's (Dev) son earnestly requests him to recount the story of the tiger he killed, hoping to one day emulate his father and hunt such a formidable beast.
In response, Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay imparts a valuable lesson, asserting that taking an animal's life is a sin.
However, he reflects that he made a grave mistake when pressed on why he killed a tiger.
This opening sets the stage for a portrayal of British colonial rule and the unwavering determination of Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay to liberate the country from the shackles of British oppression.
The trailer also introduces debutant Sreeja Dutta as Bagha Jatin's wife, Indubala, Sudipta Chakraborty as his elder sister, Samiul Alam as Kshudiram Bose, and Rohaan Bhattacharjee as Chittapriya Ray Chaudhuri, further enriching the ensemble cast.
Expectations for this film have reached a fever pitch, primarily due to Dev's transformation into a character that blurs the line between fiction and reality, making it nearly impossible to distinguish him from the real Jatindranath Mukhopadhyay.
This Durga Puja promises to be an exciting one for movie lovers, as it will see the simultaneous release of Srijit Mukherji's "Dawshom Awbotaar," Koel Mallick's "Jongole Mitin Mashi," and "Raktabeej," starring Abir Chatterjee, Mimi Chakraborty, and Victor Banerjee. All these films will compete for the audience's attention in theatres.
The battle for the highest box-office collection of the year is sure to be intense, with last year's victor, Director Dhrubo Banerjee's "Karnasubarnar Guptodhon," having secured the title of the highest-grossing Bengali film in 2022.
