Open tresses, pink sari with orange border made Debosree Roy look serene and age-defyingly pretty. Addressing the assembled press, the actress shed light on her role in the story of film. “I play the role of Justice Mayurakshi Chowdhury who is the sister-in-law of Arya. Mayurakshi is a woman of great strength and value. She is the sole guardian of Arya and Arya fears her” said the actress.
When questioned about the decrease in the number of films that she has been doing, the actress said “I do not want to do substandard roles and disappoint my fans. I want to do roles now which my fans will like and they will appreciate my effort.”
Band members of Kaya were present at the music launch event of the Indian Kolkata Bangla movie. “We are extremely happy to be part of this film and we hope that the songs will be appreciated by the audience. It is a great opportunity to work with Bappi Lahiri” said Arindam of Kaya.
There are six songs in the Tollywood Bengali film. The songs include “Bhabnar tuli die”, “Jhirjhire bristi”, “Cholona Harie Jaai”, “Chokhe amar trishna”, “Aami chameli” and “Momo chitte niti nritye”. The lyricists of the film include Kaushik Chattopadhyay, Priyo Chattopadhyay and Gautam Sushmit. Eminent singers like June Banerjee, Sadhna Sargam, Bappi Lahiri, Band Kaya, Shubhankar Bhaskar, Nandini Bhattacharya and Srija have performed the film sons.
The director shed light on the story of the film. “The film revolves around Arya who is a struggling singer and aspires to form a successful band with his friends. He depends on the lyrics sent by an unknown admirer of his songs as he is not good at writing lyrics. He is brought up by his sister-in-law Justice Mayurakshi Chowdhury. Arya gets kidnapped by a wood trafficker Anna against whom Mayurakshi is judging a case. The film takes a turn from here and you will have to go to the theatres to know about the rest of the film” said the director.
