Ashare Goppo, yet to be released worldwide, is the third premiere movie to be screened at Darpan 2013. It’s also one of the two rib ticklers of Darpan 2013.
The movie faced dual controversies during its making – initially it was embroiled in a chit fund trouble and then on accusations of copying the story by another writer.
The story revolves around a film director aspirant, Shakya, who is struggling hard to find a producer for his dream project. Having failed to find a producer, Shakya makes a Bengali remake of a South Indian flick. Eventually the masala potboiler fares very well in box office and he is compelled to let go of his individuality and keep making several remakes of South Indian films.
Ashare Goppo (Language – Bengali (Indian) with English subtitles; Rating – TBA) will be screened on 7th Sep, 6pm at The Cathay, as part of the Indian Film festival - Darpan 2013.
