May 2, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Le Chakka is an upcoming Kolkata Bengali movie directed by Raj Chakraborty and produced by Srijan Arts. The film stars Tollywood hero DEV paired with Payel.
DEV (Dipak Adhikari) plays Abir Basu, the best cricket all-rounder in South Calcutta. His cricket-crazy neighborhood "Dorjipara" is like many other Kolkata neighborhoods, and has it's own cricket team led by Abir, called Darjipara 11 Bullets. Abir is the local hearthrob of most girls in his neighborhood, but is cleaned bowled by a girl (Payel Sarkar) from an adjacent neighborhood. Beginning with the usual boy-girl friction, the relationship will surely turn into romance.
Things are complicated and turn dirty with arrival of politics and religious conflicts and resultant violence into the storyline.
Le Chokka is a comeback movie for DEV-PAYEL. They were last seen together in Ravi Kinnagi's Bengali movie I LOVE YOU (2007) [Buy DVD ONLINE] also starring Tapas Pal, Rajatava Dutta, Subhashish Mukherjee, Anuradha Roy, Arun Mukherjee and Paoli Dam in it's cast.
Le Chakka is an adapted from the Bengali Telefilm Nagar Basanta telecast on Zee Bangla TV Channel in India. Both Nagar Basanta and Le Chakka are based on a story by Padmanava Dasgupta.
DEV has apparently started to try his luck with breakdance moves, which, going by the brief exposures in the trailer, are pretty disastrous. He is also apparently decided that the George Michael look is worth emulating, and has grown a beard and procured an ear-ring, perhaps with the expectation that such accessories will increase his macho-ness.
In a reminder to DEV's superhit Bangla film "Challenge", DEV actually repeats his famous "Challenge nibi na sala" line in this movie.
