Prosenjit basks in Soumitra-starrer Belaseshe's runaway success

Prosenjit basks in Soumitra-starrer Belaseshe's runaway success

India Blooms News Service | | 25 May 2015, 02:23 pm
Kolkata, May 25 (IBNS) Tollywood bigwig Prosenjit Chatterjee is not part of the latest Bengali superhit's cast, but he is all praise of the team that made Belaseshe, a film trending in the theatres for touching an emotional chord with cinegoers with a storyline on decaying and revived family ties.
The Soumitra Chatterjee-Swatilekha Sengupta-Rituparna starrer has completed 25 days in the box office.

“Belaseshe inspiring for us. Gift to Bangla film goers, a film for all generations….” Prosenjit, busy with the shooting of Goutam Ghosh’s Sankhochil, tweeted on Monday.

“Superb@shibumukherjee and team....@Daduldutta it was important,”" the tweet by Prosenjit goes on pointing out the significance of the success of the film to leading distributor and one of the initiators of content-rich Bangla film success Arijit (Dadul) Dutta of the Priya Entertainments.

“It is an amazing tale of how people from all generations are watching the film. And more importantly those in the age group of 60s to 80s,” Arijit, a familiar face in Bengali film seminars and on celluloid as well, said.

An ecstatic Shiboprosad Mukherjee, one of the director duo of the film (the other being Nandita Roy), who would describe Belaseshe’s success as continuation of a journey since their superhit film Ichhe, said much of the adulation is owing to the superlative performance of the entire cast. 

He gave credit of the success to the big names of Tollywood – from the Dadasaheb Phalke winning Soumitra Chatterjee to Nandikar theatre group spearhead Swatilekha, and from Rituparna Sengupta to powerhorse Kharaj Mukherjee and the seasoned actor that is Shankar Chakroborty.

Asked if going by the consistent success rate of his films, not very extravagant in production value but sleek and content-rich, he as producer could be compared with producer (ghost director) Aamir Khan who is also associated with clean Bollywood entertainers, Shiboprosad said, “This is an incredible comparison.”

 “But one thing is sure. Our Windows Production and Atanu Roy Chowdhury will be backing this genre of  film to bring back the Bengalees to theatres. Any emotional tale with dollops of realism and simple narrative has takers till this date,” he said.

Actor Kharaj Mukherjee said while his chemistry with the director duo Shiboprosad-Nandita Roy in a number of films from Muktodhara, Accident to Ramdhanu and now Belaseshe has no doubt made his character more believable, one solo performance couldn’t ever lift the film as he gave credit to the collective effort of an ensemble cast.

Actor Shankar Chakroborty said: “We had badly needed such a film to effect the turnaround of Bengali film industry. A lot of my films are also lined up from Jamai 420 to Arshinagar.  And now with the feel good factor again coming back to Bengali films, the upcoming releases will only reap the dividends."
