Kolkata: Byomkesh-actor Abir Chatterjee will now don the hat of a treasure hunter in ‘Guptodhoner Sondhane’, which is claimed to be the first big Bengali film on treasure hunt, will be released this month.
Eminent Bengali directors Goutam Ghosh, Kamaleswar Mukherjee and Arindam Sil are part of the team as the director Dhrubo Banerjee said they were here to enhance the quality of the film.
Popular Bengali hero Abir Chatterjee said neither Sil, nor Ghosh nor Mukherjee carried the baggage of a film maker during the film’s shoot but did not divulge how their role unfolded in the film.
“All the three portray very interesting and important characters but how that will be a surprise. All I can say they brought more layers to the film,” the director said. Chatterjee, who had also portrayed the character of iconic Bengali sleuth ‘Byomkesh Bakshi’ in a string of Bengali films, said, “Bengalis are losing the spirit of going on exploration for treasure hunt.
The film aims at fostering that spirit of adventures in every Bengali. To my knowledge it is the first big Bengali production on embarking on adventure for hidden treasure.”
