MUMBAI: Subhash Ghai’s Mukta Searchlight Films launched the music of its new film Noukadubi, which is directed by Rituparno Ghosh. The music was launched on the banks of the river Ganges in Kolkata.
Noukadubi revolves around various emotions of the characters generated through unavoidable circumstances of misunderstandings.
The thematic boat sailed en route via Princep Ghat, Babughat, Outram Ghat, Armenian Ghat, Ahiritola Ghat etc.
The music of Noukadubi is composed by Sanjay Das and Rajnarayan Deb.
Ghosh said, "The idea of making a film on Noukadubi germinated while we were shooting for Abohoman. I would discuss with Titoda (Dipankar De) if there’s any place for Bengali literature in popular cinema because there’s a tendency to classify any literature-based film as an art film.. Noukadubi has to be seen from the point of that period’s conventional morality. Chastity plays a major role in the film. Morality is very important. A new bride who has lived with another man over a period of time returns to her husband. I felt Noukadubi has all the ingredients of a mainstream, rather popular, film. It’s basically a tale of wife-swapping – a couple is separated and there’s a lot of melodrama. Noukadubi won’t have the complicated narrative of Chokher Bali."
The film produced by Ghai stars well known Bengali actor Prosenjit Chatterjee, Jisshu Sengupta, Raima Sen and Riya Sen. The supporting cast are Dhritiman Chatterjee, Apratim Dhar, Sumanta Mukherjee, Sagar Mukherjee, Ammu Chatterjee and Maria Chatterjee.
The film is slated for theatrical release worldwide on 20 May, 2011 both in the Bengali and Hindi version (Kashmakash).
