Prosenjit in JOR JAR MULUK TAR (2010) - Bengali Movie Premiere in Kolkata and Film Review

Tollywood Hero Prosenjit Chatterjee in Jor Jar Muluk Tar (Bengali, 2010)

The film introduces few new actors where hero duo Shaan and Raj have possibility in future.

Rajatabha, Laboni, Rajesh are good in acting and Tollywood superstar hero Prosenjit again has surprised as the hero of typical Bengali mainstream cinema. He is really a great actor who is balancing properly among films like Autograph, Jor Jar Muluk Tar, Khela, etc. (we have not taken name of “Moner Manush” knowingly as Bumbada as Lalon Fakir has just crossed all the limitations and boundaries).

Movie Review: MONER MANUSH (Bengali, 2010) - Prosenjit attains moksha with his performance in this film

Calcutta, Dec 3, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) The film which is an Indo-Bangladeshi venture is directed by Gautam Ghosh who is known for such projects. The film was shot in the Chilapata forests in North Bengal (the Indian part of the locations) and the sets by Samir Chanda and the cinematography by Gautam Ghosh himself is, of course, very good.

The performance by the entire cast is excellent, but the film belongs to only one man, Prosenjit. Is this that role that one waits for in his lifetime? Is this role that helps a man to seek salvation and help a man to reach heights which he has reached never before? Shall a role silence even the harshest of his critics such is the performance? The answers to all these question is yes. Bumba-da who went in to sort of a professional sanyas in order to mentally and physically prepare himself for the role looks and acts jus like the great man himself and nowhere do you ever understand that it is Prasenjit who is playing Lalon. He undergoes a complete character transformation and he leaves the audience gasping and completely shocked with his performance. Kalua or Suleiman played by Bangladeshi actor Chanchal deserves a special mention of his performance.

Kichu Songlap Kichu Prolap (1999) Leftist Bengali Movie Released Free Online via Rajshri Bangla Video-On-Demand

Calcutta, Nov 29, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Film-maker Ashoke Viswanathan directed the 1999 National Award Winning Kolkata Bengali movie Kichu Sanglap Kichu Prolap based on his perception of evils of capitalism, generally giving the movie communist overtones.

The film will probably appeal to believers in communism and the intellectuals of Kolkata. Venerable institutions like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund are clearly demonized, and capitalism criticized and not so obliquely either. 

The legendary Goutam Chattopadhyay (of Mohiner Ghoraguli fame) is the music director of the film and appears in a short role - even if you were not told this, his unmistakable music is immediately identifiable. Ashok Biswanathan appears as the narrator character of Arup,  Sanjiban Guha as Newton and the beautiful and powerful actress Nandini Ghoshal as Ananya.

Watch the full Bengali feature-film Kichu Songlap Kichu Prolap with English Subtitles online free from Rajshri Bangla via Washington Bangla Radio - it will probably evoke a strong response from you, either positive or negative, depending on your belief-system.
