Kolkata April 28, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) In a time when entertainment has come to replace the meaning of modern cinema and people would not hesitate to spend a thousand bucks for a two hour show of sleazy one-liners and eye candy dance sequences, the importance of real life inspired movies is huge. With the latter kind of movies releasing very rarely in a calendar year, the anticipation of the audience to see a socially relevant movie can be very well predicted. The highly anticipated Bengali movie ‘8:08 er Bonga Local’ is a good example of the above kind which does run on the thread of a real life incident.

Kolkata, April 28, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio / Penning Creations) If we go by all the pre-release hype, it was definitely many degrees lesser than what was expected. The absence of the senior star cast didn’t add much to the cause. Nevertheless, the premiere screening of 8:08 Er Bonga Local (Nandan 1, Kolkata) got a full house attendance - supposedly all the tickets were sold out!

Well known faces in small screen soaps, Kanchana Maitra and Sonali Choudhury were among the most visible members of the film’s cast. Kanchana was cool and casual in a summery kurti and churidar, hair tied up neatly and minimal makeup – definitely went perfectly well with the hot summer afternoon (bless the refreshing breeze for making things a bit easier for our lot!).  Sonali didn’t quite seem herself. Heavily made up (a bit too much for the occasion) probably in preparation of the after party, she was clearly not the same Sonali we’re used to watching in the popular evening soap ‘Agni Pariksha’.
