IFFI 2019: Kaushik Ganguly’s ‘Jyeshthoputro’ Is Chosen Under Indian Panorama Section
Kaushik Ganguly’s ‘Jyeshthoputro’ has been chosen under the Indian Panorama Section of International Film Festival of India 2019 being held in Goa. The film stars Prosenjit Chatterjee, Ritwick Chakraborty, Gargi Roychowdhury. The original story of the film was conceived by Rituparno Ghosh. In this film, Prosenjit and Ritwik shared the screen for the first time.

PIB tweeted, “#Jyeshthoputro (Bengali) by Kaushik Ganguly has been chosen at #IFFI2019 under Indian Panorama - #FeatureFilms. It is the journey of a #Bengali superstar who receives the news of his father’s death and rushes to his native place.”


Jyeshthoputro, on the surface, is about grief and jealousy. But its moments of heartbreak and quiet gestures of sorrow are almost always accompanied by a sharply judged laugh or a killer put-down.

A drunk Chakraborty, the loser brother, is trying to bridge the ocean that has opened between them, only to find the distance too great. Chakraborty, an actor who is often celebrated more than he should be simply for being good in an industry full of mediocre talent, makes use of his full range here. From playful and boisterous to husked by sorrow, he flickers from boyish to broken within a matter of seconds.
