First Bengali film on underworld in offing

MUMBAI:For the first time in Bengali films, director Ringo is making a film on the underworld modus operandi in Kolkata by the name of System.

According to the director, the film will blaze the trail of a new genre in Tollywood where various layers of the dark underbelly of Kolkata - the world of crime where life is cheap and money is easy - is unraveled.

"System details the methodology, the three-four layers of the system from the very top down to the lowest rung and those having a stake in it including the undercover cops," Ringo said.

The film will blaze the trail with the various layers of the dark underbelly of Kolkata.

The director visited the Presidency Jail in the city which houses many convicts, interacted with at least seven jailed gangsters. "I also spoke to some ace crime reporters here whom you might dub as the ‘local J Deys‘, having thorough knowledge of the local underworld," he added.

The film will bring forth many episodes in the past which you can relate to but again zoom on the cerebral aspect of the incidents rather than the gory part, said the director who had earlier made films like Kranti, Jodi Ekdin and Risk.

Ringo, however, denied that the film was not another Company or Once Upon a Time in Mumbai.

"Every director‘s film - say Ram Gopal Varma‘s trilogy comprising Satya, Company and D - revolves around his own vision and study of the characters and situation. You can‘t equate System with them, but it is definitely a lot more psychological and unprecedented in Tollywood history," Ringo averred.

The director also said that System is bound to be different from the Hindi gangster films since the Kolkata underworld does not follow the same methods or hierarchy as that of Mumbai.

The film is expected to be a trilogy with the director already planning a prequel and a sequel that would chart out the notoriety and ruthlessness of the underworld through the system.
