Shotru (2011)

'Shotru' is the new flick from director Raj Chakraborty. 

The title might make one think that it is the remake of the action-drama from the Eighties directed by Anjan Chowdhury that had the same name and that became a cult hit, but that isn't true. Remake it surely is, but Raj has again made a copy of a Southie superhit - as he did with many of his earlier films (eg. 'Chirodini Tumi Je Aamaar', 'Prem Aamaar', 'Dui Prithibi'). 'Shotru' (2011) is a remake of last year's Tamil flick 'Singam' that had starred Surya Sivakumar, Anushka Shetty and Prakash Raj. Incidentally, 'Singam' is also being made into Hindi with Ajay Devgan as the hero. In Raj's film, Bangla superstar Jeet plays the role of the brave policeman Dibakar Singha, with a larger than life persona, and Nusrat Jahan plays the girl who falls in love with him.
