Filmmaker, singer and songwriter Anindya Chatterjee is ready with his third film, Monojder Odbhut Bari, slated to have a grand Puja release, on October 12. And if morning indeed shows the day, then this film has all the promises of a hit churner, going by its trailer, which was launched yesterday.

A multicast film, based on the eponymous novel by Shirshendu Mukherjee, this movie is banking primarily on nostalgia. This is Chatterjee’s second film to be produced by Windows Production after Projapoti Biscuit. Chatterjee made his debut as a filmmaker with Open Tee Bioscope, that was liked by one and all for its unique approach.

The director and the artistes shared their experiences during the trailer launch and Chatterjee said it was great to release the film this year since the story, Manojder Odbhut Bari, is going to complete 50 years in 2018.

“I feel blessed as a budding director to have got the opportunity to direct Soumitra Chattopadhya and Sandhya Roy in this film. It’s an out and out family movie, which you can watch with your children during the Pujas, no need to leave them back at home. We have not deviated from the original story and plot and it will be a nostalgic watch on screen,” says Chatterjee, the director of the film.

The trailer perfectly blends real-reel fantasy in every frame. Veteran artiste Sandhya Roy, who has worked with Satyajit Ray, Tarun Majumdar and other luminaries of Bengali cinema, will be seen after a long time in this movie. And the best part is that Roy is paired with Soumitra Chatterjee after decades.
