Trailer of the movie “Saheber Cutlet”
Bengalis are known to be foodies who are very much emotionally attached with their cooking and food habits, but surprisingly Bengali filmmakers are not too keen to make food films. From the recent past one can recollect only Pratim D. Gupta’s Macher Jhol which was a successful Bengali Food film. This Durga Puja, there is going to be a new addition in this genre, Saheber Cutlet, directed by Anjan Dutt. It will not just be a food film rather it will be a musical food film where Anjan Dutt has combined music and food together.
The film will feature Arjun Chakrabarty in the lead role. He will be seen playing an young chef who has done specialization in European foods and aspires to settle in abroad. He don’t give much importance to the local street side foods. But after going through some twists and turns he finds his own roots, he finds the essence of the local foods. Besides Arjun, the cast also includes wonderful actors like Suprobhat Das, Kanchan Mallik, Ambarish Bhattacharya. Anjan Dutt, Sumanta Mukherjee, Anindita Bose along with the comparatively new face Sritama Dey who is known for her works on OTT platforms.
Recently the trailer of the film has been released and from the trailer one can sense that the film has been treated quite differently. It has been made in opera style where music plays an important part in the narrative as an alternative to dialogues in some portions. The interesting thing is the actors have sung their parts in their own voice. Anjan Dutt himself has written the lyrics and Neel Dutt has composed the songs. Going by the previous works of the father son duo one can feel very assured that they will create wonders with the music of this film and that shows in the trailer as well.
Food and Music are two inseparable sources of entertainment in any festive season. This Durga Puja, it will be very exciting to experience the combination of these two in the musical food film Saheber Cutlet.
