1. Prosenjit’s performance
The Kaushik Ganguly directed Kishore Kumar Junior, starring Prosenjit and Aparajita Auddy in the lead roles, is an entertaining watch. From music to storyline and performances, we list down five reasons why you must watch this hit Bangla film on ZEE5.
Prosenjit has delivered a superlative performance as Kishore Kumar Junior. He’s a singer who performs at various shows. He earned the name Kishore Kumar Junior from the famous singer himself as a child due to his singing prowess and uses it instead of his real name Rajat Ghosh.
2. The music
There are few people who aren’t fans of the legendary Bengali singer and actor who has ruled Bollywood and Tollywood. His songs are still on everyone’s lips. The movie features a lot of his superhits, from Zindagi Ek Safar and Ki Ashay Bandhi Khelaghor to Chala Jaata Hoon and more. What makes it even better is that both the Hindi and Bangla versions of these songs are featured here.
3. All about relationships
Director Kaushik Ganguly has weaved in a beautiful story which is essentially a tale of relationships. From an alcoholic Prosenjit’s relationship with wife Rita (played by Aparajita Auddy) to his love-hate relationship with son Rishi (played by Rwitobroto Mukherjee) to his equation with his band members and right-hand man Khokon (played by Lama Halder) and even with one of his kidnappers Firoz (played by Rajesh Sharma) – the film deals with each of them deftly and efficiently.
4. The cast
That Tollywood’s Superstar Prosenjit is a brilliant actor has been established beyond a doubt over decades. In Kishore Kumar Junior, he is ably supported by other cast members like Aparajita, Lama, Rwitobroto, Rajesh and Maswood Akhtar (who plays the other terrorist Taufiq). Together, they make the film a gripping watch.
5. Typically Bengali
You can take a Bengali out of Bengal but the Bengaliness and love for food? Fat chance. In Kishore Kumar Junior, Aparajita’s character Rita is known to be an excellent cook. Her husband Kishore Kumar Junior loves her cooking and so does his band members. Rita, too, loves feeding people. So after being kidnapped, she takes up the charge of cooking for everyone after one meal cooked by the terrorists. The results? Even they become fans of his cooking.
