The film narrates the changes that natural disasters can bring about in the lives of an individual and a family. It is a story about a mother, her children and a decision that turns their lives upside down and separates them. It presents the story of relationships that never ends.

The cast of “Na Hanyate” includes Roopa Ganguly, Deb Shankar Halder, Chaiti Ghoshal, Biplab Das Gupta, Rahul, Priyanka, Sayani Datta and Shankar Debnath.

The music of this emotional thriller is composed by Sriram Yusuf (aka Dibyendu Mukherjee - the famous actor and singer) who starts his journey as a music director with this film. He has added the flavor of Arabic music in this film which has made the sound treatment a little different from what we usually hear in Bangla movies.

Ambarish and Arnab Banerjee have penned down the lyrics of the seven tracks of the movie. The film also has a Rabindra sangeet that will be an additional attraction for the audience.

Songs like Allah, Ekhon Adhar, Son Boley Mon, Chai Khoma and others are included in this film and have been sung by Sriram Yusuf himself and other popular singers including Lopamudra, Raghab Chatterjee, Srikanto Acharya, Swagatalaxmi Dasgupta and Somlata Acharya.

Kolkata, November 8, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) Ace singer, song-writer, actor and film-maker Anjan Dutta attempts to capture his childhood and growing up years in his latest film “Dutta Vs. Dutta”. A press meet of this film was held in Middleton Chambers in Kolkata on the 7th of November in the presence of the cast and crew members of the film.

The film is produced by Dr. Purnendu Roy and Nilakshi Roy under the banner of Orion Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. Through the film, the director presents a glimpse of his childhood days and also showcases the Bengal of the 1970’s - a memorable decade in the history of West Bengal.

The decade saw the emergence of avant-garde western rock influences in the Bengali music circuit, the arrival of the hippie culture and the Naxalite movement in Bengal. This is the environment which Anjan Dutta grew up in. Through his film, the director has tried to portray society, changes and emerging cultures of the era.

Many Tollywood Kolkata Bengali movies have been made that concentrate on the Bengal of 1970s, but they mostly focus on the Naxalite movement and associated violence and controversy. Anjan-da's film, however, takes a different track altogether and prefers to look back and capture the College Street scene, Pub Culture of Park Street and the emergence of Goutam Chattopadhyay and his legendary rock band "Mohiner Ghoraguli" of that period.

The film “Dutta Vs. Dutta” can be considered semi-autobiographical. The film covers four generation of the Dutta family, or as can be easily said, of “every Bengali family”, starting from his grandfather, father, the director himself and his son. The star cast includes Roopa Ganguly, Arpita Chatterjee, Shankar Chakraborty, newcomer Ranadeep Bose, Rita Koiral, Biswajit Chakraborty, Kaushik Sen, Subhashis Mukherjee, Parno Mitra, Manasi Sinha, Debranjan Nag, Pradip Ray, Somak Gosh, Deepankar De, Srijit Mukherji and Anjan Dutta himself.

The press meet saw the presence of Srijit Mukherji, Roopa Ganguly, Arpita Chatterjee, Ranadeep Bose, Shankar Chakraborty, Kaushik Sen, Manasi Sinha and Anjan Dutta.

Roopa Ganguly said she wanted to essay the character of a very down to earth personality, but in this film she again has a modern and bold character. Roopa found the script of the film along with the way it has been shot very interesting, and expressed happiness in being a part of the project.

Srijit Mukerji revealed his character as that of a mentor of Anjan Dutta. In real life, Srijit considers Anjan-da his mentor, and the film reverses their roles.

Newcomer Ranadeep Bose was appreciative of the space and time given him to get into his character and essay it the way he wanted to. Working with Anjan Dutta was, of course, a great experience.

Anjan-da's son Neel Dutta, the music director of the movie, talked about how he believes this film deals with a subject that needs special care and treatment and thus demands music that presents the feel and aroma of the 1960s and 1970s.
