Bappaditya Bandyopadhyay to make film on Tagore's Char Adhyay

MUMBAI: In the birth centenary year of Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore this year, filmmaker Bappaditya Bandyopadhyay has decided to make a film adaptation of one of his classics, Char Adhyay.

The movie has been temporarily titled Four Chapters as the name Char Adhyay has already been bought by a Bengali director.

Bandyopadhyay said that the movie has relevance for today‘s generation which is witness to the Maoist unrest in Jangalmahal.

The novel, which depicted weaknesses of armed rebellion against the British raj, showed Tagore‘s emphasis on the humane side of the revolutionary movement, though the dramatist never hesitated to raise his unqualified protest against British colonialism.

It may be remembered that eminent director Kumar Shahani had earlier directed Char Adhyay in Hindi, but Bandyopadhyay would interpret the story in a different way. "My interpretation will be different. The tale had intrigued me both as a reader and a filmmaker for long," Bandyopadhyay said.

Bandyopadhyay‘s first feature film, Sampradan (Offering of the Daughter), was selected in the competitive section of the 6th Dhaka International Film Festival, 2000. His second film, Silpantar (Colours of Hunger), was premiered at the Sofia International Film Festival, Bulgaria, and it was the only Indian film other than Devdas that was selected at the 2003 Helsinki International Film Festival.
