City To Celebrate Tagore And Soumitra Together


Legendary actor Soumitra Chattopadhyay used to mention Rabindranath Tagore very often. The playwright-actor grasped the thoughts, poems and songs of Tagore till his death. On April 11, Rabindranath and Soumitra, two emotions of Bengalis, will be present on stage in a different way. There will be songs and recitals of Rabindranath followed by a play 'Typist' written by Soumitra Chatterjee.

Seeing Chatterjee, Satyajit Ray once said, "Soumitra resemblances Rabindranath at a young age." Ardent Tagore admirer Chatterjee said in an interview that if he had to leave all of a sudden, he would take Gitabitan and Abol Tabol with him. "How can I live without Gitabitan?", he wondered.

Sraboni Sen will render some rare songs and Srovonti Bandyopadhyay will read from the Tagores writing at the Madhusudan Mancha. The theme of the songs and readings will be the love and pain in Tagore's dance drama.

On the first death anniversary of Soumitra Chattopadhyay, his daughter Poulami paid her homage to his father through the play 'Typist', written by the legend himself. He wrote the 'Typist' by taking inspiration from Murray Schisgal's basic idea. He also performed 'Typist' as an audio drama. Poulami Chattopadhyay and Debshankar Haldar will be seen again on stage portraying the characters.
