Srijit Mukherji and Prosenjit Chatterjee have a wonderful working relationship, with the latter having featured in 3 of the 4 films made by the former so far (Autograph, Baishe Srabon and the recent Mishawr Rawhoshyo). The dynamic duo return once again with Jaatishwar, which is inspired from the 1967 Bengali hit Antony Firingee, directed by Sunil Bannerjee and featuring Uttam Kumar and Tanuja. Uttam Kumar even won the National Film Award for Best Actor for his performance in the film. Antony Firingee in turn was based on the life of Hensman Anthony, a Bengali poet of Portuguese origin, who lived in the 19th century. Jaatishwar has Prosenjit playing Hensman Anthony and the rest of the star cast includes Jishu Sengupta and Swastika Mukherjee. Produced by Reliance Entertainment and Dag Creative Media, the film has music by Kabir Suman. Soumik Halder is the DOP and Bodhaditya Banerjee is the editor.
Jaatishwar will be due for release shortly. Check out the trailer for now.
