Kolkata, March 9, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): The premiere of the latest Indian Bangla comedy movie opened at Priya cinema Hall on 8th March in the form of Kidnapper (2013). Rupak Majumdar’s directorial debut saw some of the youngest faces of the Kolkata Bangla Movie industry coming together at the venue and thus making the premiere a bustling affair.
Ridhima and Gaurav
The first to be spotted at the event was the lead actor Samadarshi Dutta, who chose a typical Bengali look for the day. Clad in an orange ‘Punjabi’ he was seen playing the host and welcoming other guests.

Soon Paran Bandhopadhaya, the veteran actor who is presently the best senior person in the Tollywood to play a comic role, entered the scene. He was carrying a mysterious look of a secret agent as he sported a dark printed shirt matched with a black cap and semi-tinted glasses. His white beard helped maintain visual balance.
Heroine of the film Ridhima Ghosh entered the venue brightening it up quite a few times more. Her purple western dress surely made her the prima focus of the event. With her was spotted Gaurav Chakraborty who was almost unrecognizable at first glance due to the heavy beard that he has grown for portraying a particular character of another film he is shooting for. Yes, to get into the skin of the character, sometimes it becomes important to get into his beard first.
Director Rupak Mazumdar seemed to have taken a leaf out of Paran Bandhopadhay’s book as he also wore a cap.
Before the screening of the film, the producer said he is serving food to the guests where Rupak is the head cook and actors like Ridhima, Arup, Samdarshi, Sourav and Paran Bandopadhay are the spices which make the food tasty. He also expressed hope the guests will love the food and go out and tell others driving them to the movie theaters.
Paran said though the title of the film gives an impression the film has scary content but Rupak has made it possible to go in reverse and still make the title apt.
The four child artists in the film who play the happy victims were seen happier and excited at the premiere.
Also spotted at the event was Shaheb Bhattayacharya who looked stylish as ever in a trendy blue shirt paired with a brick red bowler’s hat.
Manoj Michigan, Saptak and Joy Sengupta were also seen having a gala time at the event.
