Anjan Dutt’s ‘Chaalchitra Ekhon’ – A Reverent Homage to Mrinal Sen’s Iconic Contribution

Prepare for a double delight as ‘Chaalchitra Ekhon’ graces both the silver screen and hoichoi on May 10th. The unveiling of the official poster on April 22nd, marks a pivotal moment in the countdown to this cinematic journey.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail by the multifaceted Anjan Dutt, ‘Chaalchitra Ekhon’ embarks on a nostalgic expedition to the 1980s, delving deep into the genesis of Mrinal Sen’s masterpiece, “Chalchitra.” Directed with finesse by veteran actor-director-singer Anjan Dutt himself, this one-of-a-kind film, is a tribute to his mentor Mrinal Sen, as his protege, is set to release in select theatres such as Nandan and Radha Studio to give audiences a big screen experience and simultaneously, digitally on hoichoi, for the Bengalis residing worldwide – as it’s a must watch for all cinephiles!

Honoured with accolades such as the Special Jury Award at KIFF for “Innovation in Moving Images” and the Best Actor Award for Anjan Dutt at the Dhaka International Film Festival, ‘Chaalchitra Ekhon’ has already left an indelible mark.

Stepping into the shoes of Director Mrinal Sen, portrayed as Kunal Sen, Anjan Dutt delivers a stellar performance, while debutant Sawon Chakraborty breathes life into the character of young Anjan Dutt, playing Ranjan Dutt. Bidipta Chakraborty graces the screen as the director’s wife, adding depth to the narrative.

Anjan Dutt remarked, “Mrinal Sen’s impact on Indian cinema is immeasurable; he didn’t just make films, he reshaped narratives, challenged conventions, and inspired generations of filmmakers. “Chaalchitra Ekhon” not only pays homage to Sen’s cinematic brilliance but also seeks to ignite a new wave of appreciation for his enduring legacy.”

At its core, the film celebrates the dynamic relationship between mentor and disciple, embodied by Kunal and Ranjan. Through their collaborative journey on an ambitious film project, they confront inner demons, and societal pressures, and ultimately find solace in Kolkata’s rich cultural tapestry, accentuated by the musical compositions of Neel Dutt.
