Rahul - Best Bangali import

Rahul Bose is not a thoroughbred Bangali, nor does he flaunt his Bangla/Bong connection. He has a pan-Indian appeal, and is even recognised internationally, thanks to his English language films, and the much-coveted regional films which have been celebrated in film festivals worldwide. Yet, his Bangla films have always been special.

Some of his best films are in Bangla (be it fully or partially) and they include 'The Japanese Wife' ( pic. above), 'Anuranan', 'Antaheen', and 'Kaalpurush'. Hence, I am sure most would agree, that Rahul Bose is the best import (from Mumbai) that Bangla cinema has had. He is soon to be seen in 'Laptop', directed by Kaushik Ganguly.


  1. I completely agree with you, Aniruddh.
    The second best import is Indraneil Sengupta.

  2. I wish Rahul did more Bangla films.
