Zee Bangla Cinema to telecast 'Praktan' - the most talked-about movie in the history of the Bengali Film industry

On February 26th, Zee Bangla Cinema will telecast the blockbuster Bengali movie 'Praktan'. This film is the highest box office grosser, reaching the milestone of Rs. 1 Crore in just 3 days. Praktan marks the return of the star pair of Prosenjit Chatterjee & Rituparna Sengupta - mega stars of Tollywood and Bengali cinema's most successful onscreen couple who are making a comeback after 15 years.


"I always wanted to ask Ritu, why we have not been working together for the last 15 years. The entire world and media was speculating with so many stories, all she could have done is just pick up the phone and call me. She knows me too well to know that I would have never refused her call. But she didn't and I wanted to ask her why?" Thus remarked our beloved Bumba Da, the super star of Bengali cinema, Prasenjit Chatterjee to Rituparna Sengupta during a heart-to-heart, never-seen-before chat show on Praktan. Praktan exclusively reveals their onscreen chemistry which audiences have been craving for.


The music is fabulous. The songs are beautifully knit into the narrative and so is the subtle background score. Anupam Roy of Piku fame has beautifully composed the Music for the film. Praktan is a genuine endeavor which catapults the film into the top echelons of entertainment.


Boasting an epic ensemble, the film has been directed by Shiboprasad & Nandita, names synonymous to quality cinema in Bengal. In a short span the filmmakers have been able to create a space in Bengali cinema where they have struck a balance between making family entertainers, with progressive themes and fresh ideas.


Watch Praktan unfold on television screens on 26th February, 2017 at 6 pm only on Zee Bangla Cinema.
