Trailer of the movie “Hobu Chandra Raja Gobu Chandra Mantri”
Dev has always proved himself as a path breaking producer who dares to take risk with innovative subjects. Continuing this trend, in summer 2020 he is bringing his next production Hobu Chandra Raja Gobu Chandra Mantri. It will be a fairy tale comedy based on a short story by Dakshinaranjan Mitra Majumdar. The film has been directed by Aniket Chattopadhyay.
It is a story of a fictitious kingdom named Bombagadh. It will feature Saswata Chatterjee as Raja Hobu Chandra and Kharaj Mukherjee as Mantri Gobu Chandra. Arpita Chatterjee will be seen as the queen of the kingdom named Rani Kusumkali. Both Saswata Chatterjee and Kharaj Mukherjee have worked with Aniket Chattopadhyay in several movies but for Arpita Chatterjee it will be her first experience with the director. It is also her first movie with Dev as a producer. Also it will be the first production from Dev Entertainment Ventures where Dev is not acting in any character.
Fairy tale stories are very much popular in Bengali literature for kids as well as it is one popular genre in TV serials but since a long time no Bengali movie has been made based on a fairy tale story. Most probably Bengali film producers choose to stay away from such projects because of the huge budget required for production design and visual effects. But Dev has never allowed budget to be a constraint for this ambitious project and it is showing in the first trailer of the film. The trailer is of very short duration without any dialogues. It does not reveal much about the plot but it is showing the grand scale of the film with huge royal sets. Also the make up and costumes of the characters are very much appropriate as per the period shown the film. As of now there is some time in the release of the film, till then experience the visually enriched trailer.
