Despite the pandemic situation, Birsa Dasgupta’s Mukhosh has successfully pulled audiences to theatres. The official remake of the Malayalam film Anjaam Pathiraa (2020) opened to positive critical reception when it hit the big screen on August 13. Cinephiles in Tollywood have warmed up to the film too. The film has been running in theatres for 25 days now.
Anirban Bhattacharya, who plays a criminologist in the taut psychological thriller, took to Instagram to share a special video message for his fans and the audiences on the successful run of the film.
Tagging Anirban Bhattacharya, the Instagram handle of Sri Venkatesh Films, the production house put out the word with the caption #RoaringReleases. "It’s a special day for us, that even in trying times like these, Mukhosh stepped into its 25th day in theatres," Anirban said in the video.
Here's a look at the post:
The film, which is the second collaboration between Anirban and Birsa, stars Anirban Chakraborti, Chandreyee Ghosh and Payek De in pivotal roles. Debesh Chattopadhyay, Saumya Sengupta and Madhurima Ghosh make a cameo appearance in the film.
Anirban had previously opened up to The Telegraph about films releasing during the pandemic. He had said that Dracula Sir had also been released amid the pandemic.
However, he added that COVID-19 was not only affecting people's physical but also mental health. “I know from personal experience that there are some who are finding it difficult to go on like this,” the actor added.
Speaking about his part, Anirban said that since he has played a detective in Byomkesh, it was challenging to 'make a difference in body language and expression and to portray Kingshuk, the criminologist he plays in Mukhosh, distinctively'.
The actor further added that he did not have to do any research as such to portray a criminologist as he was aware of the 'model of performance'. “I tried to understand the character, what he is like. Is he inquisitive or attacking or adamant or an introvert?” he told the daily, saying that understanding the ‘human side’ of Kingshuk was what he aimed for and followed.
