May 15, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio): Ekti Tarar Khonje is a new-age romantic thriller, from the National Award winning producers of Antaheen (BUY DVD) and Anuranan (BUY DVD). The Kolkata Bengali movie is directed by a three-time National Award winning cinematographer Avik Mukhopadhyay and produced by Indrani Mukerjee, Jeet Banerjee and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.
Ekti Tarar Khonje has a release date of June 18, 2010 in Calcutta. North American (USA and Canada) NRIs and NRBs can rent, download or watch the film online free via Netflix's one-month free offer.
The English title of the film is Stars Never Sleep - which is not a translation from the original Bengali title, which literally means "In search of a star". Perhaps the producers figure that a literal translation would not have as much appeal and came up with a completely different title in English.
The star cast includes Dhritiman Chatterjee, Shayan Munshi , Arpita Chatterjee, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Tanushree Shankar, Rudronil Ghosh, Biplab Chatterjee, Arindam Shil, Arijit Dutta and more. Screenplay is by Madhuja Mukherjee.
