The movie will be an attempt to capture the essence of the unspoken words of love
Bengali actors Sohini Sarkar and Ritwick Chakraborty
Testifying to a story of unrequited love, director Abhinandan Dutta is set to deliver a tale of romance built upon serene moments, moods and unspoken emotions. Two stalwarts of the Bengali film industry, Sohini Sarkar and Ritwick Chakraborty, have been roped in to play the lead in his next project.
The duo was last seen together on screen in 2019’s Vinci Da. In Abhinandan Dutta’s upcoming movie Ananta, they will play Suvo and Mistu, who fall for each other in a mundane yet remarkable manner.
While speaking about his film to ETimes, director Abhinandan explained how the story has no special events to cover. It will explore the inner journey of a person, who is experiencing love, and will revolve around the moments of the very small things which go unnoticed, unidentified in our regular busy lives, he said, adding that it is a common story yet universal in nature because of its relatability.
The plot is based on the story of Suvo and Mistu: Suvo is an indifferent, lonely man in his early 40s, who is jobless and lacks ambition in his life, while Mistu is a school teacher. They both cross each other’s path at a particular hour every day, when a beam of light streams in from the window of an old staircase. It is the rendezvous point for their almost regular meetings. Suvo waits eagerly for Mistu at that staircase, and they dive into deep conversations, bringing them closer as they share their dreams, all the while giving a peek into their inner dilemma. They both start liking each other eventually. However, Mistu has to marry someone else soon. Thus, one day everything stops and disappears. Suvo keeps on waiting for her in his dreams and in reality, forever.
Ritwick has numerous successes in his kitty from Vinci Da to Har Har Byomkesh, along with multiple awards and recognitions under his belt. Sohini is a brilliant actress, who has done a number of note-worthy works and is known for her diversity of roles.
