MANOJ MITRA - WBRi Kolkata TubeA venerable powerhouse in 20th century Bengali stage theater, a brilliant playwright, actor, director, producer and film-maker, Manoj Mitra is perhaps most famous for his role as Bancharam in the blockbuster Bengali movie Bancharamer Bagan (1980). The film was adapted from a stage play titled Sajano Bagan which was directed by Manoj Mitra (and of course, Bancharam played by Mitra), and remains a classic in Bengali cinema.

Manoj Mitra, born 1938 in Khulna (now in Bangladesh), leads the Bengali group theater troupe Sundaram. He is also a professor at Rabindra Bharati Univerisity, Kolkata. He published an autobiographical work titled "Bancharam - Theater-ey, Cinemaye" in 1999, recollecting his work with Sajano Bagan and subsequently Bancharamer Bagan.

Manoj Mitra recently appeared in the Bengali film Teen Murti which was conceived by the Late Tapan Sinha and completed under Raja Sen's direction. The film tells a story about three retired friends - Naren, Nagen and Nobin – who walk in the morning together. The film is a beautiful depiction of how they transform their unhappy and painful post-retirement lives into a purposeful, respectable, happy and busy one by opening a tea stall.
