In fact it is the only film other than 'Bye Bye Bangkok' this year to have celebrated 100 days. This film is strictly based on remarkably strong performances and we can definitely say that with this film Bengali cinema has proved that performance and content is the king!

To mark the success of it’s run at the box office, a party was held at the Park on Thursday in presence of some members of the cast and crew including Bratya Basu who is currently a minister of the state government.
