Actor-director Parambrata Chatterjee will soon be seen as the protagonist in Murari M Rakshit’s Reunion. The film also stars Raima Sen, Saayoni Ghosh, Sourav Das, Indrasish Roy and Samadarshi Dutta.

Singapore-based director Rakshit’s film is based on the hostel life of the 1990s. “It can be said that Reunion is the story of Murari da’s youth. He is a non-residential Bengali. His passion to tell his own story through the medium of film convinced me to be part of this film,” Chatterjee said.

Rakshit, too, elaborated on the storyline of the film, saying, “Life of the hostel student’s in the 1990s was not dependent on technology, electronic gadgets or the internet. Rather, life used to revolve around emotions a lot more. We have tried to portray the abundance of humane emotions in love, friendships and in enmity, along with the politics, incidents of ragging in a hostel on screen from the perspective of the 1990s in this film.”

Composer Joy Sarkar has been roped in for the project. He will be composing songs for a film starring Chatterjee for the first time.

“The songs may not specifically be the tracks meant to dance with, but they are going to leave an impact on the audience for sure” Chatterjee added.

Actor Sourav Das, too, praised the music of the film saying, “The songs are so good that we used to turn them on the sets while shooting, have fun with them and energise ourselves.”

According to Rakshit, the film will be released during the Durga puja in November.
