Premiere of the movie 'Game Plan'

BY Jyoti Prakash Mandal,

Recently Kolkata witnessed a pretty moment as Prosenjit Chatterjee, the biggest icon of the Bengali cinema attended the premiere of the movie ‘ Game Plan ‘ which his sister Pallabi Chatterjee has produced. This is her debut as producer and the movie also presents Pallabi as the female lead . The red carpet premiere of ‘Game Plan’ which was held at Inox , South City in Kolkata turned out to be a starry affair as the cast and crew of the movie along with a host of Tollywood celebs started dropping in at the venue. Pallabi was spotted busy ushering in guests and speaking to the media , playing the dual role of lead actor and the hosting producer simultaneously. Director Anindya Sarkar seemed to do the same as Pallabi. Bollywood actor Mahesh Thakur, who plays a pivotal role in the film, joined the team travelling all the way from Mumbai. The actor, who is also known for his acts in several television series in Hindi like ‘Tu Tu Main Main’, ‘Sasural Genda Ful’ , ‘Sailaab’ and more, looked dapper in a black suit as he posed happily for the shutterbugs. Sayantani Guha Thakurata, another lead star of the film was also present at the premiere. Apart from the cast and crew, director Shiboprashad Mukherjee, actor Rachana Banerjee, Shaheb Bhattacharya, Koneenica Bandyopadhyay and Ananya Chatterjee also graced the occasion.


But the most spectacular moment of the premiere was when Prosenjit Chatterjee entered the venue ending the long wait of the guests and the media personnel. The shutterbugs went click frenzy as the superstar posed with sister Pallabi and the cast and crew of the movie. On a special request from the photographers, he also posed with Rachana Banerjee with whom he has delivered many blockbusters like ‘Poribar’, ‘Sathi Amar’, ‘Raj Mahal’, ‘Pratisodh’ and many more. Prosenjit, Rachana, Shiboprasad and Koneenica also joined the cast and crew of the film to cut a cake dedicated to the Team Game plan. The prettiest moment of the premiere perhaps came when Pallabi fed her superstar brother a slice of cake with her own hand. The shutterbugs present were more than happy to immortalize the moment through their capturing device. Post- premiere the audience was heard discussing about the thriller and the plot built up in the movie. All of them were in praise for the individual performances of the actors and many were spotted congratulating Pallabi and Anindya for their successful effort. Mahesh Thakur’s pulling off a Bengali film, a language which he is not used to, with such élan was another point of discussion for the audience. Signs were good for the film and it looked that ‘Game Plan’ has been planned very well to woo the larger audience.
