Post-Mishawr, Kakababu to hit the adventure trail again

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

On the trail of the successful run of Prosenjit-starrer Mishwar Rawhoshyo, extensively shot in the Sphinx land, for 100 days, director Srijit Mukherjee today confirmed the intrepid adventurer will now set his foot in the mountains.

"Kakababu will return in his own form, in his true self to explore the mountains very very soon. The Bengali audience, loyal readers of Kakababu and those having seen the film, won't have to wait for that long," Srijit said at the launch of the DVD of the film, which was shot in the midst of the bloody strifes and skirmishes in Cairo and its outskirts.

Chipped in Prosenjit Chatterjee, the archetypal Kakababu in Mishawr Rawhoshyo, "There will not be much wait for the second Kakababu. We all know how important he is for the Bengalee audience."

"After Feluda and Byomkesh Kakababu will be the youngest franchise. And having someone like Bumbada in the pivotal role, a personality who has witnessed the turnaround of Bengali cinema in past two decades, the next Kakabu films will bear the same hallmark of out cast and crew in the backdrop of contemporary times," Srijit said.

"Writer Sunil Gangopadhyay had one regret. His immortal character, so popular among the young and adults alike, did not get his due respect like other such fictional characters. Our endeavour will be to give Kakababu his rightful place even though Sunilda can't see that," the Autograph maker said.

"Felt happy to learn that there was no pirated version of Mishawr Rawhoshyo as I made discreet queries at footpath stalls," Srijit said about the DVD of the movie, produced by Sri Venkatesh films at the Starmark launch.
