Calcutta, March 18, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Internationally acclaimed award-winning poet and Bengali film-maker Bappaditya Bandopadhyay's next film Elar Char Adhyay will release soon. Watch a first-look teaser trailer of the film.
The film is Bappaditya's cinematic adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore's renowned 1934 novel "Char Adhyay" - one of his last if not the last novel, starring Paoli Dam, Indraneil Sengupta, Rudranil Ghosh, Arunima Ghosh, Barun Chanda, Dipankar Dey, Bikram Chatterjee, Kamalika Chanda, Sreelekha Mukherjee and others.

Elar Char Adhyay ( এলার চার অধ্যায় ) captures the ideals of the Bengali Renaissance of the 1930s. Tagore was much in favour of non-violence,so much so that he criticised the Nationalist movement too when it went violent.What will be the state of the nation that is based on violence he had asked nearly a century ago.How much of a visionary he must have been to question the use of violence even for gaining Independence!
A group of young intellectuals and revolutionaries, led by the brilliant young Indranath, a villainous party leader is fighting for independence from the colonial system.
Ela, the group's emancipated muse , feminist and teacher revolting first against her mothers orthodoxy,then against her aunt,and finally against the larger politics where she does not hesitate to deploy her physicality.
The poet Attindra, Ela's romantic love, who - like her - doubts the cruelty of revolutionary acts sanctioned by Indranath's ideals.
