Swastika Mukherjee’s upcoming Bijoyar Pore will be released on January 12. Directed by Abhijit SriDas, the film also features Mamata Shankar, Deepankar De, Rwitobroto Mukherjee, Mir, and others. The film was screened at the 29th Kolkata International Film Festival last year.
The film delves into the tale of an orthodox family. Before the release, Swastika talked about her character. “I love my name Mrinmoyee in Bijoyar pore,” she said. Talking about the film and her character, the actress said that she plays today’s working woman. She belongs to a family with a very orthodox father. “Here the parents are the best friends,” the actress said.
The film delves into arguments between parents and children. She further added that the parents in the film hold onto their conservative ideas and children want to break free.
Bijoyar Pore also talks about homecoming, inter-religious marriage, and the generation gap. “It is an intense and thought-provoking film,” Swastika said. She also believes that people will find the film to be relatable. “In Kolkata, we are surrounded by senior citizens. The film speaks of the loneliness the parents go through. Our lives are filled with so much of work hours. We don’t have much time for nonworkhours. Our parents call to chat and we don’t have time to chat,” she said.
