Trailer of the movie “Sanjhbati”
Since when the film Sanjhbati was announced it had grabbed all the attention because of its unusual casting choice. In this film, for the first time Dev will share screen space with veterans like Soumitra Chatterjee and Lily Chakraborty. It will also feature the fresh pairing of Dev and Paoli Dam. Besides them, the film will also feature Sohini Sengupta in a special appearance. It has been produced by Atanu Roychowdhury under his newly formed production house Bengal Talkies and it has been directed by the duo Leena Gangopadhyay and Saibal Banerjee who had earlier directed the much acclaimed film Maati.
The film is about two elderly persons played by Soumitra Chatterjee and Lily Chakraborty. They live a lonely life as their own kids are not by their side at this old age. In such a situation two strangers played by Dev and Paoli Dam who works as their care takers help them to fill up the void in their life. It will show that emotional bonding does not depend on blood relation only, it forms out of genuine love and care for each other.
Recently the trailer of the film has been released. It does not reveal much about the plot and briefly focus on the heartfelt emotional bonding between the four primary characters. In the trailer, all the lead actors are looking very much convincing in their parts including Dev. It seems Dev has improved a lot with his craft. Besides the lead actors, the other highlights of the trailer is the eye soothing cinematography by ace cinematographer Shirsha Ray, specially the sequences shot in the exotic locations of Darjeeling. The background score is also very pleasant to ears.
Few months back there were lots of controversies regarding that Sanjhbati’s story idea is similar with the film Gotro. After watching the trailer one can not deny that there are similarities in the basic story idea of both the movies but it looks like here the director duo has treated the subject with more sincerity and subtlety compared to Gotro. There are chances that Sanjhbati may leave more impact on the audience compared to Gotro. The film is scheduled to release on this December 20th till then watch the trailer of the film here:
