Filmmaker Suman Mukhopadhyay will make a movie based on popular novelist Manik Bandopadhyay’s time-honored novel ‘Putulnacher Etikotha’. Director Suman informed the media that the title of the movie will be the same as the novel. 

It is learned that the popular actress of two Bangla Jaya Ahsan will star the movie. Besides, Abir Chatterjee and Parambrata Chatterjee will be seen in the lead roles. Apart from them, Dhritiman Chatterjee and Ananya Chatterjee will star in the other two important characters.

Suman Mukhopadhyay told the Indian media that two things were very important for this film — “skilled actors” and “big-budget”. Besides selecting good actors, the marketing aspect of the film has to be kept in mind now. “Abir, Jaya, Param will be able to do that balance. Producer Sameeran Das (Kaleidoscope) relied on me for a budget. The shooting schedule of this film will be 25 days which is not seen in Bengali film now,” he said.

Prabuddha Banerjee is in charge of the playback music of the film. The film will be framed from the late 30s to the early 40s. 

Director Suman Mukhopadhyay said the time in the original novel was “more backward”, but we brought it a little further. Moreover, it is not possible to capture everything from the novel in the film. The movement of the two mediums is different. “I put more emphasis on character chemistry,” he added.

Abir plays the role of ‘Shashi’ in the novel. Jaya will be seen in the role of ‘Kusum’. Parambrata is doing the character of ‘Kumud’. “Shashi’s part is getting more importance in his film,” director Suman said.

“In my opinion, Shashi is an impossibly strong character in Manikbabu’s creation,” Suman Mukhopadhyay said.
