Pritha Chakroborty’s upcoming film Mukherjee Dar Bou features Rituparna Sengupta, Anusua Majumdar, Koneenica Banerjee, Biswanath Basu, Aparajita Adhya and Badshah Maitra.

Mukherjee Dar Bou promises to explore female friendships inside the corners of families where women are driven to loneliness after their marriages.

In the recently released trailer, the story of Mukherjee Dar Bou is told through the pens of Aratrika Bhattacharya (Sengupta), who introduces Shobharani (Majumdar), a widow of a certain Mr Mukherjee and her daughter-in-law Aditi - the wife of another Mr Mukherjee. Aditi and Sobharani cannot stand each other.

Their continuous efforts at proving their importance in each other’s eyes reveal their deep rooted insecurity for each other. However, under the insecurities lie ignorance of their husbands, acute loneliness and lack of freedom and companionship.

Aditi is a victim of the nonchalance and injustice inflicted upon her by her husband, who thinks allowing her to work outside will create unnecessary trouble in his life. One of Aditi’s close friends (Adhya) also silently swallows the bitterness of being cheated on by her husband while cooking in the kitchen.

The trailer then steals the suspense of the film to a certain degree by disclosing that the situation doesn’t remain the same for long. Victims eventually hold hands and explore their own selves by coming out of their identities of being merely ‘Mukherjee Dar Bou’ (Wife of Mukherjee Da).

Though the film narrates the miserable situation of housewives, the trailer doesn’t look grim. The sequences of the conflicts between the mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law are rather entertaining which suggests that though these two ladies are causing trouble for each other, deep inside they actually care for each other.

From the trailer, it also appears that the film is going to present the relationship between a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law in new light.

The film is slated for release on Women’s Day, 8 March.
