SVF announces Anirban Bhattacharya’s first directorial feature film 'Ballavpurer Roopkotha'

Kolkata/IBNS: SVF has announced actor Anirban Bhattacharya's first directorial venture 'Ballavpurer Roopkotha'.

Bhattacharya, who has earned praises for donning the director’s hat for his web series 'Mandaar' last month, is all set to try his hands in feature films. 

'Ballavpurer Roopkatha', a quirky horror-comedy, revolves around the eccentric story of Ballavpur Rajbari’s last descendant

The music of the film will be composed by Subhadeep Guha and Debraj Bhattacharya. 

While 'Ballavpurer Roopkotha' is written by Anirban Bhattacharya himself along with his closest professional ally- Prateek Dutta, the cinematography will be led by Soumik Halder.

'Ballavpurer Roopkatha' will tell the story of the almost crumbling Rajbari of Ballavpur which only has two men living- The last descendant of the Ray dynasty – Bhupati Ray and his inherited menial Manohar.

The ’Dynasty’ merely exists as there is no trace of wealth except this ruin. Both the dwellers are overburdened with heavy debts and seek no hope of betterment until one day they get a proposal of selling off their property.

What continues is a hullabaloo of actions by Bhupati Ray, Manohar, the buyers and one ghost that makes Ballavpur Rajbari a temple of chaos for that night!

The film is based on Badal Sarkar’s very popular drama piece 'Ballavpurer Rupkotha'.

Excited about bringing the movie to the audience, Bhattacharya said, "I have always been extremely fond of horror comedies/ satires since childhood and needless to say we are fortunate enough to get some fantastic horror comedies from great filmmakers over the years.

"I won’t say that this particular genre hasn't been tapped by Bengali filmmakers before as there have been Bengali movies that parallelly experimented with horror and comedy in the same narrative. However, the number is quite less. 'Ballavpurer Roopkotha' will be light-hearted yet surprising."
