After the massive success of Bela Shuru in 2015, director duo Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy came up with the sequel Belaseshe. Like the first film, the sequel too was nothing short of a casting coup with Soumitra Chatterjee, Swatilekha Sengupta, Rituparna Sengupta, Aparajita Adhya, Monami Ghosh, Shakar Chakraborty, Kharaap Mukhopadhyay, Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee and Anindya Chatterjee in the lead. The film was a massive success soon after its release in May.
After having a generous collection from the box office, Belashuru has now been released on Hoichoi. It is streaming from September 18. The film has also dropped on TV on the same date.
Belashuru was shot in 2018 and 2019 and was slated to release in 2020. However, the theatrical release was postponed due to the pandemic. Meanwhile, both the veteran actor and actress, Soumitra and Swatilekha, breathed their last before the release.
Belashuru is a continuation of Bela Seshe and delves into the lives of Bishwanath (Soumitra) and Aarati (Swatilekha). In the film, Aarati suffers from Alzheimer’s and Bishwanath becomes the sole caregiver. Despite their children’s plea, Bishwanath doesn’t let his wife part from him to another child’s house. The film is dotted with sentimentalities and has proven to be a tear-jerker. Aarati forgets the identity of her husband’s identity. Her family, along with Bishwanath, takes her to Bangladesh, her ancestral home to bring her memory back. Despite partial hope, Aarati stays aloof.
The film also explores the current state of Bishwanath and Aarati’s children. Mili (Ritupaarna) and Bijon (Sujoy Prosad) build a friendship in their lavender marriage. Barin (Shankar) – their elder son – deals with his solitude and Piu (Monami) and Palash (Anindya) fight to get time for each other.
