National Award-winning filmmaker Supriyo Sen’s upcoming directorial venture Tangra Blues, starring renowned actors Parambrata Chatterjee and Madhumita, is all set to release on 15th April in theatres.

After having received huge positive response from the audience on the teaser, SVF went on to reveal more about the film in a star-studded event, held yesterday, with the entire cast and crew of ‘Tangra Blues’ being present.

SVF, that has been consistent in delivering disruptive film stories to the Bengali audience for the last 25 years, is now in an effort of tapping into different culture and genres through its upcoming, engaging film contents. ‘Tangra Blues’ that brings forth the musical culture of one of Kolkata’s most notorious slums- Tangra, is the first film ever made in Bengal that upholds the aspirations and struggles of the slum dwellers in so much prominence.

The film is inspired from the lives and struggles of Sanjay Mondol & Group, Kolkata’s one of the most popular waste Band group, originally belonging from Tangra who went on to become a runner up in India’s Got Talent, 2010.

Supriyo Sen, Director, “The street of Kolkata has a lot of raw talent and Tangra Blues is an effort to bring forward this spirit of the streets. Tangra Blues will see music in a very different taste. My entire cast and crew that has worked on the film have performed brilliantly. I am looking forward to what the audiences think of the trailer and the film when it releases.”

Besides the cast and crew of Tangra Blues, that includes Parambrata Chatterjee, Madhumita, Supriyo Sen, Samiul Alam, OIshani Dey, Atmadeep Ghosh, Rishav Basu and Nabarun Bose, all the band members of Sanjoy Mandal and group were present in the event. The team shared their experience on sets along with some film trivia. The event opened with the rocking performance of Sanjoy Mondal’s waste band group which was then followed by the showcasing of the teaser.

This is the first time that Parambrata and Madhumita will be seen together on-screen. SVF released the official poster of Tangra Blues on Thursday and the trailer will be released soon. With Nabarun Bose’s excellent music composition and Supriyo Sen’s directorial touch, the film poses to be the most promising release of Poila Boishakh, this year.
