Kolkata, November 11 (IBNS) Every year at the opening of the Kolkata International Film Festival (KIFF), this writer feels a bit shocking about Bollywood's biggies, Mr Bachchan and Mr. Shahrukh Khan overshadows the scenario and the Bengali stars set slightly or less.

This year, this gap was largely banned by bringing Soumitra Chatterjee in (the movie was avoided earlier due to its perceived political differences with the Trinamool Conference) and Waheeda Rehman's award the same platform that reminds us of Abhijaan Satyajit Ray where they were collected together.

A bonus & # 39; he did not have connections to the movie festival that the audience was secretly in a short trailer of Shahrukh Khan Zero's rigid movie. One thinks and this is the right time and the right place to present the trailer of its movie.

Apart from this minority, the picture was complete because Bengali antique cinema actors start with Biswajit Chatterjee through Madhabi Mukherjee, Sabitri Chatterjee, Ranjit Mullick and many veterans and newbies that form the Bengali film industry in Present on the Pussi looks pretty happy to share the platform with Big B and Shahrukh Khan.

Tollywood reminded Biggie Prosenjit Chatterjee, President of the 24th KIFF, the audience for the beginning of the Bengali cinema stating that the quiet film of Bilwamangal lay the foundation of the 100-year-old building. The question is – how does a "quiet" movie define itself as a "language" film that does not speak at all?

However, taking into account the Billwamangal release date that is said on November 8, 1919, it is not 100 years old. The criterion based on this option may not be a "talk" film, the consideration, the story, the actors, the geography and the culture.

However, someone said that even before Bilwamangal, Hiralal Sen had made advertising films. Sen also made a documentary criticizing Partition of Bengal in 1905, which is the first political film in Mengal.

Although Waheeda Rehman, a guest at the festival for the first time, reported his experience of having worked with Satyajit Ray who was appealing to his fears of speaking his lines in Bengali, she did not know anything about it, Amitabh Bachchan who raised a significant point in his speech.

He noted that, although we celebrated 100 years of Bengali cinema, why do we always tend to focus on directors and actors? Do not make the rewards going to the contribution behind the extremely hard and creative scenes by men's cosmetics, motivating boys, seeing boys, assistant directors, choreographers, costume designers without their creative effort that no movie ever had to do. , much less receipts and awards?

Mamata Banerjee, Will Bengal CM, whose visions dominate the venues of the festival, note a note for next year – the Money Jubilee Year and doing something for this is flawed?
