News on Bipasha and her Bengali film, "Shob Charitro Kalponik" aka "Afterword"

Sooooo excited for this film!! I've been waiting to hear more news about it since I first blogged about it on February 16, 2009 -- also, more stills, different ones on that post. Get to see Bips in a really good, significant role since Corporate.

I keep getting different information on the film title. Whether it's Afterword or Shob Charitro Kalponik. Regardless, all we know is that Bipasha Basu is the heroine and the star of the Bengali film-maker, Rituparno Ghosh's film!!!

Bips definitely has that natural beauty. I adore her, like you don't know already. She is independent and strong.

From Samaylive & another Samaylive & DNAIndia

“Until and unless you have not decided on what you want to do, you cannot reach your goal. Though it is not easy to follow the right track but you have to come across such people who can guide you to success.”

Bips also added that girls should be on their own feet so that they could tackle the problem or situation in their life. They are not supposed to be dependent financially to their boy friend or husband. Also, she said that nobody should rely on these relations.

Be responsible for yourself. It's tough not to get carried away when you are on your own and are in the process of making it big. Stay the way you have been brought up and do not let anyone mess with that.

Back to the Bengali film.
Guess what??????

Shob Charitro Kalponik has been selected for the Durban Film Festival!!!!

The movie, which depicts the journey of a woman into the life of her poet-husband (Prosenjit Chatterjee) after his death, will be screened in the panorama section of the festival, which runs from July 22 to August 2.

Bengali film-maker Rituparno Ghosh's new celluloid venture, 'Shob Charitro Kalponik' (All Characters Imaginary), has been selected for the 30th Durban Film Festival 2009, in South Africa. It will be the first ever premier for a Bengali film in the African continent.

The film - produced by Indian conglomerate Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG)'s flagship media arm Reliance Big Entertainment Ltd (RBEL) - will be screened in the Panorama Section of the festival, alongside films by directors such as Woody Allen, the Dardenne Brothers, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Winterbottom and many other foreign film-makers.

'Our efforts to broaden international horizons for Bengali films are beginning to be successful. Rituparno's work has also been widely acclaimed globally,' BIG Pictures chief operating officer (COO) Mahesh Ramanathan said here Monday.

He said the BIG Pictures, RBEL's motion pictures brand, had secured selection for 10 of its world cinema titles in over 12 prestigious international festivals in the last six months.


Written and directed by Ghosh himself, 'Shob Charitro Kalponik' is a story of death and loss with many emotional and romantic moments staring Bipasha Basu, Prosenjit Chatterjee, Jisshu Sengupa, Pauli Dam and Sohag Sen.

The Bengali film is scheduled to be screened July 30 in the festival.

'Shob Charitro Kalponik' is the story of Radhika's (Bipasha Basu) journey into the life of her late poet husband Indraneel (Prosenjit Chatterjee) and the revelations and contradictions she learns about Indraneel as a poet and husband. -- Sify

Shob Charitro Kalponik is expected to release on 28 August in India. -- IndianTelevision

She's so stinking GORGEOUS, and I love how she looks in traditional clothes. Hope it doesn't have a bummer ending like Bengali films seem to.

Bipasha is abosultely stunning in those sarees and traditional jewellry. I have only seen her in Corporate and Omkara and I liked her in both.

Thanks for the post, info about the movie and the stunning pics Nicki!

I will make a note of this movie though i don't know if it will have a world wide release or if i can get a DVD with english subtilte - local desi store says no english subtitles in the bengali movies he sells

bollywooddeewana - Bips is gorgeous no matter what. I'm glad she is in a different type of film too. I have to give credit to the net where I found the pics, I just had them saved :)

ajnabi - I have a feeling that this film will end up sad but still going to watch it for my gal, Bips!

Sita-ji - I'm glad you saw it. Can't wait to see it.

cmleigh - You're welcome.

anon - I hope you get to see more of Bips. I did post about some films of Bips that should be watched here. I hope to review them soon too. I mis her.

You are very welcome. I am sooo excited for this film and for Bips too.

It's hard for me to find any South Regional films at any desi stores so I know the feeling. I just have great friends who look out for me.

Bhargav - Love it too! You're so welcome
