‘Bismillah’ teaser is a melancholic ode to an artist’s passion and legacy | Bengali Cinema News

Finally, here is some good news regarding the upcoming release of Indraadip Dasgupta. The ace musical director had smashed it all with his debut film “Kedara” which stars Kaushik Ganguly in the lead. Since then, everyone has been eagerly waiting to see how he wins hearts again with his skill in his next film. Well, his next “Bismillah” is set to drop on August 19.

The teaser for the film has already been released and it beautifully explores the story of a musician torn between his passion and achieving a legacy. It shows Bismillah, a Muslim flautist, who often appears dressed as Krishna. Scenes from her romantic moments with Subhasree resemble references to the love saga of Krishna and Radha while glimpses of Surangana Bandopadhyay, presumably playing a young Vaishnavite widow, explore an innocent childhood friendship. Kaushik Ganguly playing a shehnai ustad adds a new dimension to the narrative.

“Bismillah focuses on the tradition of a musical family and how foreign intrusion disrupts it. A musician not only goes through the music, but his environment and surroundings also shape him. With growth, his music begins to take shape and changes too. It’s also one of the projects that have been close to my heart since ‘Nagarkirtan’ and it also deals with the issue of community harmony,” shares the director.

Riddhi Sen stars in and stars as “Bismillah” in the film, a story about the journey and evolution of a musician. It also stars Kaushik Ganguly, Bidipta Chakraborty, Subhashree Ganguly, Rudranil Ghosh, Damini Benny Basu and Surangana Bandopadhyay.
