"Ranjana Aami Aar Aasbo Na"

Anjan Dutt in "Ranjana Aami Aar Aasbo Na" 
The film stars Anjan Dutt as an ageing rockstar, and Parno Mittra plays the role of Ranjana, an upcoming singer who wants to be let into the inroads of music....... the trials and tribulations, the disillusionment, the disenchantment that threatens to tear her up, as she comes close to the real world of her idol, and her ultimate forging of a strange bond with him, is what the story of the film is all about.

Sudipta: She's yet to get her due!

Sudipta Chakraborty is one talented actress whom contemporary Bangla cinema has largely been unable to use. Though she had bagged the National Award (for Rituparno Ghosh's "Baariwaali" some years back, she is mostly seen in television soaps. Her screen outings are few and far between, and that too are mostly small supporting roles. I hope the directors take note of her abilities, and I sincerely hope she gets many a meaty role in the future.

Vikram: Making a splash with his debut

Vikram Chatterjee is might seem, to the uninitiated, yet another actor in Tollygunge, as he makes his silver screen debut with Arup Bhanja's new film, tentatively titled "Aalor Thikana", but the Bangla television audience have already been won by this guy since he started acting in the serial "Saat Paake Bandha".

The serial had got him a fair amount of fan-following, and now he is keen to be appreciated by the film-goers as well. Vikram is being seen in the party circuit every now and then, and the rumor-mills are abuzz with stories of his romancing actress Paoli Dam. They have been supposedly spotted together at trendy joints and nightclubs, and are known be quite an item pair.

Vikram has contract-bound with the makers of his debut serial but now he wants to aim big once his screen outing gets the much desired appreciation. He has acted in theatre in Mumbai, and has studied acting in Kishore Namit Kapoor's institute there. He does have gentle good looks and has a charming smile to set the girls' hearts aflutter.

Here's wishing Vikram all the best.... may he conquer Tollywood!:-)
