Ek Je Chhilo Raja: Bengali Movie - New York Premiere

"Truth is stranger than Fiction, History is stranger than Truth."

The Film "Ek Je Chhilo Raja" - already hailed as a masterpiece by iconic Director Srijit Mukherji - brings a larger-than-life true story to the silver screen ! The film has also received commercial success and has been the Talk of the Town this Puja season !

The story revolves around Mejho Kumar - MahaRaja Mehendra Kumar Chowdhury, brilliantly played on screen by Jisshu Sen Gupta - who oversees one of the princely states in Bengal during the British rule and the legendary story of Bhawal Raja who turned into Bhawal Sanyasi . 

The Prince falls ill and is taken far away from his estate for treatment, where he presumably dies. But a thunderstorm saves him from the funeral pyre and the administered poison, and he is taken in by Sanyasis' . He recovers back to health , but loses his memory and wanders for 12 long years ! During a trip to Chittagong, he gets his memory back and on the orders of his guru - comes back to Bhawal estate. The estate is now run by the British, and they refuse to acknowledge him as the rajah, and a Landmark legal case ensues ! And at the end - well you have to watch the film for that ! 

Produced under the banner of SVF Films, and directed by the maestro Srijit Mukherji - "Ek Je Chhilo Raja" - is a riveting spectacle that you can only experience in the Theater on the silver screen ! Set, Make-Up, Music, Art Direction and the stellar performances by Jisshu Sen Gupta, and the ever-undomitable actress of both Bengals - Jaya Ahsan, and the seasoned performances of legends Aparna Sen and Anjan Dutta - make this a must watch film !

Thank You for supporting Bengali Cinema !
