Kolkata, July 20, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Mithun Chakraborty describes his title role of Buddhuram Dhol as of a thick-headed police officer who is, however, not completely dumb and is very honest. The police department does rely on him to solve complex cases in spite of his simplicity. He has an assistant who manages to muddle of their cases all the time, and although Dhol himself also messes up sometimes, they do manage to solve their cases.
Rupa Ganguly's character is of the cop's lover. Unfortunately, due to circumstances perpetuated by third parties, the lady ends up marrying someone else (played by Kunal Padhi).
Buddhuram Dhol Duniya Goal is also a movie about the next generation - the young daughter of the lady runs away from home, presumably to not get separated from her lover the way her mother did. The mother then does everything to make sure that her daughter does not commit the same mistakes she did in deserting her lover. There is also an indication of Dhol and his love getting reunited at the end.
Chakraborty says Buddhuram Dhol Dunia Gol is an entertaining comedy drama with a message about love finding it's way over time. There are nice twists in the tale and the journey of the younger couple is refreshing.
Roopa Ganguly, a great friend of Mithun Chakraborty who she has appeared in many Bangla and Hindi movies with (but never before as a romantic partner of the lead couple like in this film), reveals the mischief-making fun-loving character of Chakraborty while shooting. Chakraborty is known to pull everyone's legs and kid and joke around until the time he is up for a shot, at which time he enters the make-up van, gets ready with his lines, and comes out to deliver a performance that leaves everyone speechless with awe. Do not miss the friendly camaraderie between acting powerhouses Ganguly and Chakraborty in this video while they argue on who is the inspiration for the other.
Other than about Buddhuram Dhol Duniya Goal, Chakraborty shares his thoughts about commercial versus parallel / art-house films, saying there really are two kinds of films - good and bad - with good films making money for the producers and bad films making them lose money.
Chakraborty also touches upon the effect of television in these days, saying when he was trying to establish himself in Indian cinema, he had to perform in private parties and gatherings hoping to catch the eyes of someone in the industry, while today television provides a platform to demonstrate the talents (or otherwise) of aspiring actors directly to a billion people. Perhaps that is why there are so many talented young people coming into showbiz today.
Buddhuram Dhol is directed by Narayan Roy. Victor Banerjee also plays a lead role in the film.
