February 28 (Calcutta Tube): Director Partha Sarathi Jowardar talks about his upcoming Bengali movie Bandhu Tumi Esho with newcomers Sujay, Tanushree in lead roles. Check out the EXCUSIVE interview at Calcutta Tube.
Calcutta Tube: Please tell us something about your next movie Bandhu Tumi Esho.
Partha Sarathi Jowardar: Bandhu Tumi Esho is a romantic movie, but very realistic. In none of the scenes you will feel that they are unreal. Every human goes through certain sequences and phases, when they fall in love. That is what I have tried to portray in this film. The story along with the timeline, is very much real. The music scored is by Sanchayita, again. Shan may lend his voice in some of the songs. I am also going to shoot a couple of songs in Malayasia.
Calcutta Tube: Are the story and the scirpt yours?
Partha Sarathi Jowardar: The story and the script both are my concept. But I have worked with Shanwar Hussain.
Calcutta Tube: Why did you chose newcomers as the main cast in the movie?
Partha Sarathi Jowardar: Intially I chose from 15 actors and 15 actresses. Among them I further selected three from each group and had a workshop with them. Then I picked the final candidates as I thought they would be the most suitable ones for the roles. And I am very much happy with their work.
In some of the side roles, I have cast eminect actors like Victor Banerjee and Rajesh Sharma. TV actors Jayanta Dutta Burman, Lama, Rajiv willalso be seen in some of the character roles. They are usually not much seen on big screens. But I hope this movie will help them get more roles in feature films in future.
Calcutta Tube: Is Bandhu Tumi Esho is commercial movie?
Partha Sarathi Jowardar: Yes, it is a totally commercial movie. But irrespective of its commercial approach, it is going to be good film.
Calcutta Tube: When would you like to release this film?
Partha Sarathi Jowardar: I plan to release it in May, 2010.
Calcutta Tube: What are your future plans?
Partha Sarathi Jowardar: As a filmmaker, I want to make different types of films. No two movies should have the same vision, that is what I believe. I want my films to appeal differently to the audience. I plan to make another romantic love story of a young couple – absolutely 17 year old girl and a 20 year old boy. I want to capture the attitude and mentality of the young generation in some forthcoming film.
