After the grand success of the movie Chander Pahar, the biggest production house from Bengali movie industry SVF Entertainment has decided to make its sequel and announced their 100th film production. They promised to make it the biggest film of the Bengali film industry ever. And after the much appreciated Chander Pahar based on the novel by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, the production house decided to make its sequel to give entertainment a way better than the previous one. SVF the largest entertainment company in Eastern India had already released the first look and teaser of the Amazon Obhijan and is all set to enthrall the audience Christmas’17.
In the movie Chander Pahar, Dev act as Shankar Choudhuri and portrayed himself as the protagonist of ‘Chander Pahar’ (‘Mountain of the Moon’). Shankar is your brilliant youngster in every respect – a good student, an excellent athlete & a thirst for knowledge & adventure in his life. However, the year is 1909 & what awaits him at the end of his schooling is an ordinary clerical job at a jute factory. So when an acquaintance offers him the opportunity to work abroad, Shankar grabs it with both hands & lands in the middle of Africa. And that was the beginning. In this movie, Shankar again does his adventures in the jungle of Amazon.
The production house SVF Entertainment and the director did not want to lose the thrill and the original essence. This time, they are coming with the same background and suspense in fact which define the specialty of this series with a large-scale investment about a budget 15 crores and much more expectations from the Bengali as well as Indian audiences.
Penned by Kamaleshwar Mukherjee, the script of ‘Amazon Obhijan’ takes the story forward from where it left and Dev has been quoted as saying that the next location, after the African safari, the adventure begins at the dense forests of Amazon rainforest. As a director Kamaleswar Mukherjee have taken the challenge again and one more time they will go down in history for braving the very difficult journey filled with risk but full of confidence.
The 75 secs teaser of ‘Amazon Obhijan’ showcased the glimpses of the journey with natural difficulties, wild animals-anacondas, black caimans, jaguar, savage tribes and vicious gold diggers. This time, Shankar will have to travel thousands of miles more and fight off every danger to reach the mythical city of El Dorado. During the shoot, the shots are taken widely across Brazil, including the underwater sequences at two rivers, Rio Solimoes and the Rio Negro.
With an aim to take Bengali film to a wider audience, Amazon Obhijan will be released in multiple languages including English. The English version of the movie has been titled as- Amazon Adventure.
Chander Pahar’ is arguably one of the finest adventure novels and critics may say that the nostalgia worked behind the success of that movie. Now, Amazon Obhijan is the successor of this. As SVF Entertainment cast almost the same crew in this movie too, the audience can keep their fingers crossed for their expectations.
Hope,this time also the directorial as well as writing expertise of Kamaleshwar Mukherjee will do the magic again in the silver screen as he never failed to fulfil the cinematic’s expectations.
