Love is not just about dating. It is not just about going for dinner dates, movie dates or weekend tours. Love is about being with each other, through thick and through thin. It’s about holding your partner’s hand during good times and bad and not letting go, and telling each other that being together matters. ZEE5 Original Bhalobashar Shohor – Paramount is the story of one such love.
Being a couple –doesn’t matter whether you are married or not, is not just about sharing the good times. It is also about helping each other ride out all those tough moments when all seems lost. The Abhijit Chowdhury directed ZEE5 Original tells one such story. Starring Rahul Arunoday Banerjee as Shubho, a photographer who is married to Rita (played by Payal Sarkar), a teacher at Scottish Church College, Paramount is the story of a couple braving an immensely tough situation. The famous sharbat shop Paramount in College Square is another character worth mentioning in this 33-minute movie.
Shubho had met Rita in Paramount, over a glass of sharbat and had eventually gotten married to her. On their second anniversary, they go out for dinner and have a fight. An agitated Rita storms out of the restaurant and gets hit by a car while trying to hail a taxi. Critically injured, she develops selective amnesia. She can’t recognise Shubho oand doesn’t remember that they were married. Rita’s brother Rishi (played by Suhorto Mukhopadhyay) and Shubho’s sister Tina (played by Tanika Basu) try to bring the couple back together. The movie has some heart-touching moments, especially the scene where Rita is told again that her mother had expired four years back.
