Thana Theke Aschhi

Thana Theke Aaschhi- Saron Dutta's screen adaptation of the Bengali drama of the same name written by Ajit Gangopadhyay sixty years ago, featuring Ajitesh Bandopadhyay and Tripti Mitra, and not a remake of the well-known Uttam Kumar film, also of the same name, as revealed by the director, is hitting the theatres on 29 January.

While the Facebook group on the film, a thriller, is uncannily silent (No discussions by any of the 216 memners, not even by the producer who's the admin), with the solo thread posted by me last July requesting a character sketch, the latest addition there are the stills. Perhaps the makers didn't find a better way to promote it on Facebook. Bangla cinema, especially alternative cinema, really needs a social media consultant. It does make sense to make the best of this emerging media platform at hardly any cost, thereby suiting the tiny promotional budget of alternative cinema.

Here's some select stills.

  1. I would definitely watch this film when it releases, buddy.
    It is not only based on one of my favorite plays (Priestley's "An Inspector Calls"), but it is also remake of the fine Bangla film adaptation starring Uttam Kumar.
    The director, Saron Dutta, raises my hopes too as I saw much promise in his earlier work.
    Plus, my current favorite, Paoli Dam is in this film, so it is surely not going to be missed!;)
