Champion Movies ventured into the production of Bengali films with Jawker Dhan. The film was a
huge success and it established Champion Movies as one of the prominent production houses in
Tollywood. After the grand success of the first film, it was essential to continue to present the
audience with more engaging and interesting stories. So, we are glad to announce our next film,
'ALINAGARER GOLOKDHADHA', under the direction of Sayantan Ghosal. The film stars Anirban
Bhattacharya, Parno Mittra and Kaushik Sen in the lead roles. The film also stars Paran
Bandhapadhyay, Pujarini Ghosh and Goutam Halder. It is releasing on 20th April, 2018.
Written by Soumya Basu, the film is about a treasure hunt that leads to mysteries being unveiled
about Alinagar. Alinagar is not a fictitious place but the old name of Kolkata under the rule of Siraj
ud-Daulah. The story revolves around a valuable artefact from the days of Nawab Siraj ud-Daulah.
Soham played by Anirban Bhattacharya, is a student of history and has inclination towards solving
mysteries. Soham is taken to a heritage family by his girlfriend Brishti played by Parno Mittra.
Brishti's ancestors carried out a scholarship programme in a reputed University of Kolkata. Soham is
granted the scholarship by Brishti's father Asutosh. Soham started to live at Asutosh's house.
Asutosh tells Soham about his friend from whom he had received a letter with a riddle. Soham
somehow manages to solve this riddle. This leads him to another person who has the next letter
with another riddle. The second riddle leads Soham to a third person and the matter gets more
intriguing when the person gets murdered while trying to disclose something secretive to Soham.
Soham embarks on a mission to unearth the mysteries and is aided by his girlfriend Brishti. In the
process, we also get to know a lot of unknown facts about ancient Kolkata.
Director Sayantan Ghosal said, "Alinagarer Golokdhadha is a story I had wanted to tell for a long
time. This was supposed to be my debut film, but then the opportunity to make 'Jawker Dhan'
happened, and I went ahead with it. What makes this film so close to my heart is the fact that in
spite of being an adventure/ treasure hunt movie, it's a very sentimental and emotional story. Every
character has an arc; everyone has shades that are revealed by the end of the story. The crux of the
movie is not limited to the revelation of what the treasure is, and where it is. There is more to it. The
film is my homage to Bengal, its culture and the language itself. Perhaps my most passionate and
personal attempt till now."
The music of the film has been composed by Meemo S Ray. The first song from the movie, Itihaash
Kobita, has been sung by Rupam Islam. The link to the song: bit.ly/ItihaashKobitaVideoSong.
