Kolkata, November 29 (Washington Bangla Radio): The director who had enthralled us all with his excellent presentation of the lives of the ghosts in “Bhooter Bobhitshot” is back again with “Aschorjo Prodip”. The star studded premiere of Anik Dutta’s much awaited film “Aschorjo Prodip” took place at Priya Cinemas.

The film Aschorjo Prodip is the tale of a middle class man named Anilabho Gupto. He is harassed by his boss at work and is heckled by his wife at home. He is unable to live up to the expectations of his wife Jhumur. His meager earnings do not enable him to fulfill her grand wishes. His wife is also embarrassed about the place where they live “Bechu Dutta lane”. She feels that her son will not get admitted in a good school due to the name of the street in which they live.  Anil stumbles upon an antique lamp on his way back from office. He keeps it in his bag and returns back home. Later when he rubs the lamp, the genie appears. It takes a lot of persuasion to convince Anil that he is indeed the genie of the lamp. The genie fulfills all his material needs but things go horribly wrong after a big shock. The film is a modern day Aladdin, set against the backdrop of contemporary consumerist society which reduces everything to a commodity.

Mumtaz Sorcar who played the role of MalaMaal in the film looked sexy in her black high neck sleeveless dress. “I cannot reveal much” smiled the actress broadly and quoted this line from the film. She plays the role of a Bengali super model turned Bollywood bombshell.

The captain of the ship “Aschorjo Prodip”, Anik Dutta was spotted entering the hall with singer Usha Uthup. “I have received some positive feed backs from the audience who have watched the matinee show of my film. Some have liked it better than Bhooter Bhobitshot while many have not liked it as much as they liked the earlier film. However every opinion counts” said Anik Dutta. Usha Uthup was all praise for the music of the film. “I have listened to the songs and Raja Narayan Deb has done a wonderful job” said the singer.
