Rosogolla is a sweet which is not only famous among the Bengalis but is equally popular all across the country. The delicacy has put India on the global food map. Bengal is known to be the inventor of this amazing sweet. Director Pavel’s second film is about this sweet’s delicacy and focuses on the life of its maker Nabin Chandra Das. The film is being directed by Pavel and produced by Shiboprosad Mukhopadhyay and Nandita Roy, directors of a string of blockbusters.
The film traces the journey of Das, who is the protagonist. It captures the discovery of the spongy syrupy sweet by him after months of efforts in 1868. It also focuses on the love life of a young Das. Contemporaries of Das who were also in the business — Bhola Moira, and Bhim Chandra Nag — will also be featured in the film.
To recreate the settings perfectly, Pavel studied the preserved works at the Victoria Memorial, including paintings by Thomas and William Daniels, Calcutta Gazette, besides works of researchers such as P T Nair and many others.
It has some of the best actors of Bengali film industry, including actors Kharaj Mukherjee, Kaushik Sen, Aparajita Auddy, Chiranjeet, Rajatava Dutta and Bidipta Chakraborty among others. The trailer of the film is loved and has created a buzz since the release. The film is expected to release on the 21st of December. We hope that such films are made more so that we can be aware of our own glorious history.
