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.

Lajja - The Shame (2010) Bengali film review - Joy Mukherjee, Moubani Sircar - the latest Bangla Terrorist Film from Tollywood

CALCUTTA, Oct 29, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Many Bengali films are being made nowadays on the theme of terrorism most of them terrible and this particular film is no exception. This film also features terrorists, but also consisting of Hindus rather than only Muslims and also the guess is that they are Bangladeshis and not Pakistanis for a change. This film features a lot of sequences which are ridiculous and one feels that the film is a little dated.

A terrorist, Salim Khan arrives at the airport with other gang members and is arrested. The terrorists decide to finish off the Commisssioner. When he arrives from London and is on his way back to the city, he is kidnapped by the terrorists, but Raj, a journalist who happens to pass by at that moment helps to prevent the kidnapping. The Commissioner is indebted to Raj and is willing to help him regarding any matter. Raj also runs into the Commissioner’s daughter, Shweta a few times without knowing who she is.


Mon Chai Tomake (2010) Bengali Film Review - A Halloween horror treat for Tollywood film lovers

CALCUTTA, Oct 29, 20101 (Washington Bangla Radio) Mon Chai Tomake is primarily a love story but also a semi horror film which somehow makes it different from the rest. It is not a full fledged horror film (thank God for it!) because this is a genre which Tollywood is not too comfortable handling as very few have been made and the ones which have been made are terrible. This film is about an young pair who meet by chance and then on their way back home to Siliguri encounter dead souls and one dead soul in particular in fact is so much obsessed with Ani thinking him to be her dead husband from her past life that she changes forms in order to just keep him in hand but yet can not win him over at the end and she goes back to the sky in the form of a star never to bother Ani any more!

Autograph (2010) - Prosenjit delivers a flawless performance - Bengali Film Review

Calcutta, Oct 23, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) In the past few years we have come across movies based on the Bangla film industry, the notable being Tolly Lights, Angshumaner Chhobi, Housefull, Abohoman, Ekti Tarar Khoje and Shukno Lanka (Buy Bengali Movie DVD Online). It is evident that the industry has plenty of food for the directors. But a tale that is a tribute to a classic like Satyajit Ray’s Nayak (Nayak - The Hero DVD Release), casting the current superstar, does evoke extraordinary curiosity. It offers the audience a voyeur’s peek into the lesser-known private world of super-stardom.

In the film the base reference to Nayak is through the film within the film, which is a remake (called Ajker Nayak) by Subhabrata (Indraneil Sengupta), a tenacious aspiring director, but down the course of the film the references cross the line and show up in the superstar’s (a confident and arrogant Arun Chatterjee, played by Prosenjit) (exclusive WBRi interview of Prosenjit Chatterjee) real life as well, even merge and go beyond. As the tagline tells, Nayak does change three lives: Arun’s, Subhabrata’s and Srinandita’s (Nandana Sen) - Subhabrata’s live-in girlfriend, along the journey.

Read the complete review, watch the trailer, listen online to exclusive interviews of Srijit and Prosenjit Chatterjee and download the audio songs of Autograph (Bengali, 2010) via Washington Bangla RadioTM.
