Abohoman Bengali Movie First Look-Rituparno Ghosh
Rituparno Ghosh’s upcoming Bengali film, Abohomaan, is based on legendary filmmaker, Satyajit Ray’s life. Apparently, Ray had some issues with his wife and son. A major part of the film focuses on that.
[ReviewAZON asin="B002B65T7A" display="inlinepost"]Even though Rituparno wanted Amitabh Bachchan to play the lead role with Shabana Azmi as his wife and Madhuri Dixit and Farhan Akhtar as the actress who he is attracted to and his son respectively, he had to settle for actor Dipankar Dey as the protagonist. Mamta Shankar plays his wife and Ananya Chatterjee, the actress. Jishu Sengupta plays the son.
Produced by Reliance Big Pictures; the film is said to have been fictionalized by Rituparno. While those who know Ray can definitely point out the similarities, it is not entirely based on his life.
