Kabuliwala Release Date
The talented filmmaker Suman Ghosh opens up about his upcoming film Kabuliwala, and also his experience of working with Mithun Chakraborty. If you love to read Bengali literature then you may know that Kabuliwala has been written by the great novelist Rabindranath Tagore. The maker Suman Ghosh has chosen this film by keeping actor Mithun Chakraborty in his mind as he told Mithun Chakraborty was on his mind when he wrote the script of the film Kabuliwala.
Mithun Chakraborty appears on the poster of Kabuliwala with little girl Anumegha Kahali. The actor remembering his first work with the talented actor in 2012, Suman said, “I did the film Nobel Chor with Mithun Da earlier in 2012. The story of Kabuliwala was told on the silver screen, in Bengal in the1950s. I felt it had to be retold now. My retelling had to be with Mithun da. He does very few films now, even in Bengal. I waited for him for five years. I was first working on Aadhar and then The Scavenger of Dreams.”
He also added, “Working with Mithun da is a separate high. Most people know that he was a superstar since Disco Dancer. And, he parallelly did films that got him three National Film Awards. He is such a solid actor. I wrote the script with him on my mind. We just finished the shoot and he has contributed so much to my basic thought (of the film). I often say I have a husband-wife relationship with him. The way we exchange our thoughts. It was a wonderful experience. The film is likely to be released at Christmas and I hope people like it.”
The story of Kabuliwala beautifully depicts the paternal love of a middle-aged Afghan man for a small girl in Kolkata. Tapan Sinha represented a film based on the story in 1957. In between this Bollywood’s first rendition of the story came in 1961 with Hemen Gupta’s Kabuliwala.
The trailer of Mithun Chakraborty’s highly-anticipated film Kabuliwala has been released. We would like to inform you that the term Kabuliwala describes a person who comes from Kabul in Afghanistan. In this film, Mithun Chakraborty plays the role of a Kabuliwala named ‘Rahamat’ who comes to Kolkata from Kabul to earn money by selling Hing (resin-like spice) to people. The trailer kicks off with Mithun Chakraborty’s Kabuliwala walking tirelessly and a little girl calls him sweetly by saying ‘Kabuliwala O Kabuliwala’.
The girl is offering him, Prasad, Kabuliwala asks her, ‘What’s this?’, the little girl replies on a childish note that you don’t know anything. The little girl asks him about his God, Kabuliwala has told his God name is Allah. The Kabuliwala becomes emotional and prays to God to make people innocent like this little girl.
Everything is going fine until Kabuliwala is hit by a taxi while crossing the road taking the little girl in his lap. After this accident, the locals beat him tremendously, his head starts bleeding. The father of this girl also tells him to not come to this area ever. The trailer now goes back to Kabuliwala’s early life showcases his family living in the desert, and also how he has left all the things to come to Kolkata for livelihood.
After entering into the city of joy, he meets with the little girl who used to copy him. The little girl and Kabuliwala used to have a sweet bond like father and daughter. In between this, the mother of this girl becomes concerned as she thinks all of those Kabuliwala kidnap children and sell them outside, but the father takes it lightly. The main twist comes when the girl goes missing, and people accuse Rahamat of kidnapping the little girl without any proof. The trailer ends with an innocent question from a little girl as to where you are going and Rahamat replies I’m going to my in-law’s home, actually, he has been sent to jail.
In this film, we will see Mithun Chakraborty will play the lead role in the new film while child artist Anumegha Kahali will play the young girl. The Bengali actors Abir Chatterjee and Sohini Sarkar have played the role of parents of this little girl.
