Director Srijit Mukhopadhyay during the film festival panel discussion. Such questions flew from the front row of the audience, hearing which Srijit probably felt a bit shy. Because the questioner is none other than the director’s own Gharani Mithila. Srijit said, “I understand the question is for me.” Stopping him, Arindam Sheel said, “Srijit will answer after all.” The cause and the end speak.” Hearing this on Wednesday afternoon in the assembly hall of the Bengali Academy at Nandan Chatter, the audience burst into laughter. Mithila’s question was, is it possible to maintain the industry standard at all times with the obligation to produce two-three films or web series in a short time? Srijit’s response, “Of course it is possible. Just as it is possible to do well by taking into account market demands, the reverse is also true.”


At the moment, two films are successfully running in theaters in Bengal. A friend’. The other is “The Tale of Ballabpur”. Director Prasoon Chatterjee has just entered the industry directing the first. And the director of the second, Anirban Bhattacharya, made his first film within the industry. Is there a fine line between the two? How to determine the new language of Bengali films?

Tolipara members held such an interesting discussion at the Kolkata Film Festival on Wednesday. The subject was “New Age Film Language”. Led by Srijit Mukhopadhyay, besides Anirban and Prasoon, Arindam Sheel, Raj Chakraborty, Manas Mukul Pal presented their speeches in front of the audience. In Prasoon’s words, “I don’t know the new language of cinema. The language of the film depends on the story and the script.” by Prasoon was released in theaters. In other words, he is back in the system. In my opinion, this is the novelty of cinema.” Because the director made the film sitting in Pakistan. He sent the message of female empowerment.

Trying not to compromise on image also sometimes takes the image in a new direction. For example, Manas has been trying to make a “biopic” of revolutionary Dinesh Gupta for a few years after “Sajha Pather Guppo”. But he said he turned down the producer’s offer not to compromise.


Anirban came a little late in this discussion because of the filming. In the crowd of so-called city films, Bengali audiences preferred to watch a small “rural” film. Behind this, Anirban mentions people’s urge to get out of the “tedious life of market demands”. Raj, on the other hand, emphasized market demand and the economics of film. In his words, “Even if it sounds bad, for me cinema is business. For me, the script is important, it will bring the audience to the theater, the main objective of the director is to make a good image If you can do this, a new language will naturally be created in cinema.

Incidentally, as Thursday was the last day of the film festival, moviegoers flocked to Nandan Chatter on Wednesday evening. In the evening, the audience’s enthusiasm to watch Victor Mukhopadhyay’s “Lakrabagga” was eye-catching.
