Love. An emotion that binds. And emotion that destroys. An emotion which is all encompassing, passionate, disruptive. ZEE5 Original Bhalobashar Shohor – Kolkatar Kobitara, is one such tale of love. It will make you go through the motions of happiness, sadness, excitement, fear and all that you associate with the process of falling in love as you live those 42 odd minutes with the characters. Read on to know more.
Mallar (played by Saurav Das), belongs to a traditional north Kolkata family where the rules of tradition hold so strong that the women of the house eat only after the men are done having their meal. The rules of the house are different for men and women, so even though his cousin Malini (played by Ishaa Saha) was better than Mallar in academics, he was the one who was sent abroad to study, and Malini’s dreams of becoming a fashion designer were buried. Mallar comes back to such a household with his friend Angshuman Bagchi (played by Gourab Chatterjee), an NRI from Texas. Together, they want to revamp the family’s old printing business.
Malini falls for Angshuman and even the elders in the house start talking about getting them married to each other. But the problem is, Angshuman loves someone else – Mallar. The Abhijit Guha and Sudeshna Roy directed Bhalobashar Shohor – Kolkatar Kobitara deals with sensitive subjects like same-sex relationships delicately and efficiently. What happens when Mallar comes out to his father? Watch this ZEE5 Original to find out.
