Basu Paribaar : Suman Ghosh’s Directorial Is An Official Selection At River to River Indian Film Festival 2019
Suman Ghosh’s Basu Paribaar is an official selection at the River to River Indian Film Festival in Florence. The film festival will run from December 5 to 10 and ‘Basu Poribar’ will be screened on December 8. The film is a social drama and stars Soumitra Chatterjee, Aparna Sen, Rituparna Sengupta, Saswata Chatterjee, Jisshu Sengupta, Paran Banerjee, Lily Chakravarty and Koushik Sen in the lead role. 

The film had also won three awards at the 2019 NABC Film Festival in Baltimore in the Best Film, Best Screenplay and Best Actress categories, as reported by The Times of India. 


Ghosh was highly appreciated for his work in the film and the way he captured emotions within the family. The film was an example of today’s modern family who are lost in the world of their own.
In the film a family has united at their ancestral home in Midnapore to celebrate the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Sen and Chatterjee. The celebration has its darker and murkier side under wraps which unfurls gradually. However, the other family members involve the son and daughter-in-law (Jisshu Sengupta and Sreenanda Shankar) who are settled in the USA, their daughter (Rituparna Sengupta) who is Mumbai based. Mr Basu’s nephew and his mother (Saswata Chatterjee, Lily Chakraborty) arriving all the way from Haldia. Bringing up the rear are Senior Basu’s elder sister’s son and daughter-in-law (Kaushik Sen, Sudipa Chakraborty) and a childhood friend (Paran Bandyopadhyay) who is extremely witty.

Amidst celebration and cutting the cake, audiences are enlightened about the couple’s conjugal life across five decades through their reminiscing. But as time wears on, abysses and fissures surfaces in the relationships of the family members and a time comes when they have to face some hard realities. What begins as a happy family reunion cracks up with some hitherto unknown, esoteric family secrets spilling the beans. All the hypocrisies of urban class conflicts become exposed reminding us of Shakespeare’s words “false face must hide what the false heart doth know”.
