'Chitrangada: The Crowning Wish'

Rituparno Ghosh's latest offering - 'Chitrangada: The Crowning Wish' - is all set to release on the 31st of this month.
The film sees Rituparno facing the limelight again as an actor as well, after his successful acting forays in films like 'Memories in March' and 'Arekti Premer Galpo'. This time, he essays the role of a choreographer who plans to stage Rabindranath Tagore's cult musical named Chitrangada on the occasion of the bard's 150th birth centenary.
Incidentally, the conflict in his life runs parallel to the story of Tagore's creation in which the protagonist had not been eager to comply with her father's wish to transform into the prince of Manipur as her father, the king, did not have a male heir. Rituparno's character too refuses to conform to the conventions that include even the sexual identity that he tries to hold on to. The film also has Dipankar De, Raima Sen, Anasua Majumdar, Anjan Dutt and Jishhu Sengupta. The film has been produced by Shree Venkatesh Films.

Nothing to be proud about.

'Awara' brings us back to square one.
An uninspired remake.Yet again.
