MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Networks India’s (SPN) latest offering, co-produced by Mojo Productions Pvt. Ltd, bengali film Maacher Jhol's trailer was launched today on the big screen in the presence of the cast and crew.

Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Pratim D. Gupta, is a heartwarming journey of an internationally renowned Masterchef struggling to cook the quintessential Bengali dish, Maacher Jhol (fish curry).

The official trailer, launched at the popular Kolkata cinema hall Priya, gave the audience a sneak peak of the film that has been shot in Kolkata and Paris and has music by Anupam Roy of Piku fame. Award-winning actor Ritwick Chakraborty plays Masterchef Dev D while the legendary Mamata Shankar plays his mother, and Paoli Dam his wife Sreela. “Maacher Jhol” is all set for a 18th August release in Bengal followed by a national release in the later weeks.

Sony Pictures Networks India executive vice president Tushar Shah said, “Maacher Jhol beautifully captures the emotional bond between mother and son and how they make beautiful memories with food. It also brings out the flavors and aromas of Masterchef Dev’s relationship with various people who made an indelible impact on his life. We are confident that this heartwarming drama will change the way people watch Bengali cinema forever.”

Mojo Productions Pvt. Ltd Joy B. Ganguly also added, “We have reached an inflection point in regional cinema, and Bengali films are in the forefront. Our second co-production for Sony Pictures Networks India has been a great experience. Pratim's vision for “Maacher Jhol” will be a clutter breaker in the Indian film industry, the trailer is just one example.”

Talking about the film, writer and director Pratim D. Gupta said: “Maacher Jhol has turned out to be a visceral experience to be seen, heard, felt and, most importantly, tasted. It celebrates a very Bengali sentiment but is universal in its resonance. Partnering with Sony Pictures Networks India and Joy has been a very fulfilling and enriching experience, given their unalloyed passion for cinema.”
