Calcutta, April 15, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio) Film-Maker Arin Paul (interview), director of Doshta Dosh (10:10) [Buy DVD], Jyanto Durga and numerous acclaimed films, recently traveled to the mountains of Gangtok in north-east India to shoot two ad films with the leading Tollywood actress and accomplished danseuse Locket Chatterjee (interview).
Arin himself grew up in Shillong, and must have felt right at home in the laps of the majestic Himalayas.
Ashok Pramanik was Arin's cinematographer during these shootings. The films were shot on spectacular locations in Ban Jhakri falls, Aritar Lake, Singtam Monastery, M. G. Marg, Rock Climbing Place and more. Arin tells us the Rock Climbing Place is virtually unexplored!
One of the films is a commercial for bottled water, and features a climber Locket Chatterjee dropping her water and eventually finding a beautiful little waterfall.
Here are some pictures from the shooting of these films. You can also watch the film on You Tube. Enjoy !
