Interview:Director Sukla Mitra & Music Director Gautam Mitra on Bengali films TEEN TANAYA, NAUKADUBI, CHOKHER BALI & ROBIR ALOYE

[Bengali Film-maker SHUKLA MITRA in Calcutta]March 1, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Sukla Mitra, director, and Gautam Mitra, music director of Teen Tanaya (Bengali, 2011) appear in this live conversation with Arijit Chakraborty for WBRi.

Sukla Mitra has narrativised Rabindranath Tagore's short stories and novellas for a long time, including Chokher Bali, Noukadubi, and a set of three telefilms in a series titled Robir Aloy. Ms. Mitra had been thinking of creating and directing Teen Tanaya - based on three of Tagore's poems - for about 3 years. Many of Tagore's short stories have been presented on TV, but rarely of his poems. For Teen Tanaya, Ms. Mitra created 35 to 40 minutes on film for each poem. She had initial concerns about how to narrativize the poems, but once she decided to focus on creating a simple and accessible picture story, the script was not hard to develop at all, particularly because Tagore's writing itself is so picturesque.
