Noukodubi (2010)

Nauka Dubi Bengali Movie NOUKADUBI Bengali Movie

Noukodubi (also spelt Noukadubi, Naukadubi etc.) is an upcoming Bengali movie by acclaimed film-maker Rituparno Ghosh, starring Prosenjit and Jisshu Sengupta with the Sen sisters Raima and Riya. The film will be released in theaters in 2010.

It was rumored that Sharmila Tagore would also appear in the film. This could not be confirmed.

Nouka Dubi is the first film that casts Raima Sen and Ria Sen together. Indian movie lovers actually see a strong possibility that Noukadubi is the first film that casts a pair of sisters together in the same movie.

Nouka Dubi sees Riya Sen's arrival in a lead role in Bengali cinema. Her debut Bangla film, Rituparno Ghosh's Abohomaan, only had a very small role for Riya.

Noukadubi is adapted from Rabindranath Tagore's classic story. Raima and Riya play Hemnalini and Kamala, while Jisshu plays Ramesh.

In 1947, director Nitin Bose had made a movie from the same story. Noukadubi (1947,Bengali) starred Abhi Bhattacharya, Meera Mishra, Pahari Sanyal, Biman Bandyopadhyay, Shyam Laha, Mani Chatterjee, Priti Majumdar, Sunalini Devi, Gayatri Debi and Upen Chattopadhyay. Music was by Anil Biswas.
