Eros reunites with director duo Shiboprosad Mukherjee & Nandita Roy for ‘Posto’
MUMBAI: Eros International Media has reunited with director duo Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy, makers of ‘Belaseshe’ and ‘Praktan’, to announce their upcoming Bengali family drama ‘Posto’ slated to release on 12 May.
Starring Padma Bhushan awardee Soumitra Chatterjee, Lily Chakraborty, Jisshu Sengupta, Mimi Chakraborty and Paran Bandopadhyay, ‘Posto’ (a regular delicacy at any Bengali household) is a contemporary film based on the intricacies of human relationships that centres around a 7-year-old boy. Multi-talented musicians—Anupam Roy, Anindya Chatterjee and Upal Sengupta—have come together to create music for this film.
Anticipating that the story of ‘Posto’ built around modern day parenting and co-parenting will resonate with audiences across the country, Eros is targeting an approximate 100 screen release nationally (outside of Kolkata), including newer markets, a first for any Bengali film. The company also has plans to release the film widely overseas as well.
Eros International senior VP, India Theatrical Nandu Ahuja said, “Our partnership with Windows Productions has been successful over the years with consecutive blockbusters like ‘Belaseshe’ and ‘Praktan’. With each of these films, we have scaled up the release with growing audience base for regional cinema. ‘Posto’ promises a universal appeal, beyond geographical boundaries and language barriers and we are hopeful this film, like all their previous films, will continue to touch hearts”.
Director Mukherjee said, “We are excited with the release plan of the film as this would really be a path breaking stance for Bengali cinema. Nandita Roy and I couldn’t be happier that everybody likes the story line of the film, and the support that we have received over the years is overwhelming. We hope to go a long way together with Eros and make good cinema for the audience going beyond language and boundaries”.
