They are exceptionally well made, multi award winning films that we hope you will enjoy.

Please find below details for the three Bengali films:


(Australian Premiere)

Starring: Deepankar De, Jisshu Sengupta
Director: Rituparno Ghosh
Producer: Reliance BIG pictures

DU‘Abohomaan’ tells the story of Aniket, one of the finest filmmakers of Bengal and the loves of his life. Devoted to his craft Aniket fell in love with his wife Deepti, an actress, while they worked together on a film. Deepti gives up her career to be a good wife and mother but loses part of herself. Years later Aniket auditions a young actress, Shikha, who bares an uncanny resemblance to his wife when she was younger. Deepti enthusiastically begins to coach Shikha for her husband’s film. Shikha becomes even more like the girl Deepti used to be with very complicated consequences..

At Hoyts Melbourne Central, Screening Time: March 16 Wed 8:30pm, March 19 Sat 4:00pm

Moner Manush

(Australian Premiere)

Starring: Prosenjit Chatterjee, Raisul Islam
Director: Goutam Ghose
Producer: Rose Valley Films Ltd

It is a saga of the life and times of Lalan Faqir and his liberal sect who lived a life of high ideals in an otherwise superstitious 19th century Indian society. Faqir founded a philosophy based on the liberal and enlightened tradition of Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam. His philosophy made him a easy prey for murderous Hindu and Muslim fundamentalists. The love and compassion of Lalan is so very relevant in today’s world of intolerance, suspicion and hate.

Screening Time: March 17 Thurs 8:50pm
At Hoyts Melbourne Central

Just Another Luv Story

(ANZ Premier)

Starring: Chapal Bhaduri, Rituparno Ghosh, Indraneil Sengupta
Director: Kaushik Ganguly
Producer: Tapan Biswas

Chapal Bhaduri was once famous for the feminine lead roles he played. At over 70 years of age Chapel is still a woman trapped in a man’s body. He lives a forsaken life surviving on the memories of his past. That is until he meets Abhiroop Sen, a flamboyant gay filmmaker, who lures him with big money to reveal his tragic story for a documentary. Media wrath, homophobia, emotional conflicts and physical attractions tumble into the lives of the characters.
