Kolkata, Aug 18 (Calcutta Tube/IBNS) Actor Rituparna Sengupta was spotted at a jovial mood at the music launch of her upcoming Bengali film ‘Aarohan’ (Ascension) in Kolkata Tuesday night.
“It’s such a wonderful film. I have always wanted to be a part of meaningful cinema and at the moment, nothing can be better than ‘Aarohan’,” said Ritu.
Directed by Pinaki Chaudhuri, ‘Aarohan’ is about a patriarch Suryasekhar Chattopadhyay (played by Soumitra Chatterjee), who is a man of firm principles and is a strong believer of the predictions in his horoscope. The film is about his take on life and how his values change through strange turn of events.
Inspired by an article in the Telegraph newspaper in 2007, Pinaki makes it a point to deliver a strong social message through his film.
Pinaki said: “No one in Bengal other than Soumitra Chatterjee could have played the lead better”… which is very much justified from the promos of the film.
The music of the film is by Suparnakanti Ghosh, son of eminent music director Nachiketa Ghosh.The film has nine songs, including a Rabindrasangeet,a Nazrulgeeti,a Bhatiali song and also a new-gen song featuring popular band Bhoomi.
The music keeps alive the morbid subject of the film, claims Ghosh.
Ghosh said: “Today most of the songs have very offensive lyrics but still they work, I am aiming at something different and real.”
Present at the launch were Suparnakanti Ghosh,Soumitra Chatterjee, Pinaki Chaudhuri, Rani Banerjee (the producer of the film), Rituparna Sengupta, Samadarshi Dutta and Tulika Chatterjee.
The film which is releasing on August 27 looks promising and all the nine compositions are expected to break-through the stereo-typed song pattern of present-day Bengali cinema.
