MUMBAI: Bipasha Basu has finally got her first Bengali release. Riturparna Ghosh directed her in his film Shob Charita Kalponik and the film has opened to rave reviews for the actress, who has been portrayed in a serious role. However, with the dubbing not in her own voice, the film goers have found it a tad incomplete.
Shob Charitra Kalponik is a film about the deteriorating relationship between a married couple, which rediscovers love only after the husband dies and the wife goes through his literary works. Basu said, "I am glad that my performance has been appreciated. This will certainly encourage me to do more Bengali films."
She added, "Rituparna is a great director. The film stands out because it is layered. The storytelling of Rituparna is so different than most directors with its various graphs and tones that a very simple story is then told in the most complex way. He also sees a lot of World Movies and he is deeply influenced by their narrative. And that’s why he tries to exercise those in his films with his own individualistic style, which makes his movies so different and a huge challenge for actors."
Basu is currently shooting with Priyadarshan in the border of Kerala and Karnataka in the small town of Karaikudai for another histrionics driven film. With the director doing away with comedy for some time, Basu has got herself a good meaty role in this political thriller, which talks about honor killing amongst the North Indians because of their caste system.
