Top 10 Best Movies Of Mahua Roychowdhury

 

Decades have passed after death of Mahua Roychowdhury, still she  is remembered by Bengali film audiences. Mahua is considered as number one actress of Bengali films of all time. Here are the top 10 movies of Mahua Roychowdhury.
This is a tough job to select 10 movies from Mahua's films. Mahua acted in probably more than one hundred films. It is true that many of those films were based on poor story and script but Mahua's performance was praised in all her films. This is said by Tarun Majumder.

Before film Dadar Kirti (1980), Mahua was offered mostly 2nd female lead roles in films. Mahua was only 22 when Dadar Kirti was released. And in post Dadar Kirti films, Mahua was in lead female role in all her films and in many films she was the main character. From 1980 to 1985, Mahua magic was ruling the Bengali film industry. It is said that at that time she was the 1st, she was the 2nd and she was the 3rd among all Bengal Film Industry actresses. Mahua was dominating the industry. Mahua died when she was only 27. Most of the film actresses get their footing in the industry at this age while Mahua was at the top. If Mahua was alive, what would have happened at the age 30-35-45 and above? Critical challenging roles started   coming to Mahua - 'AAj Kal Porsur Golpo', 'Aadmi Aur Aurat' and she she again proved herself in these films. Untimely death of Mahua has caused lot of damage in Tollywood. 

Still we have tried. Here are the 10 films of Mahua's memorable performance where Mahua played the lead role. We have another page where Mahua Roychowdhury's memorable films where she played second lead role. From that page number of films can be included in top 10 films of Mahua irrespective of 1st lead or 2nd lead.

Shriman Prithviraj (1973)






Debut film of Mahua Roychowdhury. Cute Mahua was main attraction of the film and Bengali audiences came to know that a new actress has arrived. At the age of 14, Mahua was so comfortable in front of camera. Her performance including dancing touched everybody. 

Shriman Prithviraj is a Bengali romantic comedy film starring Ayan Banerjee and Mahua Roy Choudhury, and directed by Tarun Majumdar, featuring teenage love. It is the story of the transformation of a young boy's innocent but naughty childhood to an appreciation of the Swadeshi movement and the growth of adolescent love for a girl even younger than him. The comic appeal of the film is natural and free-flowing. 

The leading cast, Ayan Banerjee and Mahua Roychoudhury as the teenage-couple are still remembered for their roles in the film. Moreover, the blend of the pre-Independence political backdrop with the simple love life of the newlywed is excellently portrayed. On one hand there is the caricature of a typical Babu, who's hell-bent on getting the ‘Raibahadur’ title from the British rulers played excellently by Utpal Dutt, and on the other hand a Swadeshi played by Biswajit Chatterjee, who is out to teach the British rulers a lesson. The main focus is on Rashik Laal (Ayan), a notorious boy. To curb him, his parents get him married to Kamala (Mahua). But he creates havoc in his in-laws’ house as well. The interplay between the two, their becoming friends, missing each other, understanding their feelings for each other all make for a charming love story.

Last seen of the film, where Mahua is kissing Ayan is worth seeing.

The movie revolves around a girl, named Minati, a very straight forward person due to circumstances, becomes a dancer.

She forgives him and starts performing on stage to earn money to cure his illness.
Finally the husband realised his faults.

Mahua is Minati in this film and made the film success alone.

Few words about the story of the film

Story of the film has lots of common with Mahua's life. Mahua worked hard from her tender age to support her family financially and after marriage also her hard and dedicated work helped her family to run smoothly. In her real life she was always suspected for being success and fair looking like 'Minati' in the film Abhimaan. Even few dialogues in the film Abhimaan are interesting. At one one stage of the film Bishu Da (Sukhen Das) of the film 'Abhimaan' says ' The girl is earning money through stage shows (dance) from the age of 16 and after marriage she is earning money for the treatment of her husband' but getting ill-treatments, no sympathy'. Is it just coincidence? Script writer of the film was Anjan Chowdhury and he used to stay just above Mahua's flat at Behala. Burn case of Mahua happened at her Behala's flat. 
In many scenes, it appeared that Mahua is not acting - just reality is coming out from the actress.

On May 5, 1976, the death of Surupa, a housewife from a noble family in South Calcutta, shook the people of the city at that time. After investigation, the police arrested Surupa's husband Indranath Guha. Apart from Indranath's parents, Ramendranath Lahiri and Jhantu Charan Dutt were also arrested. Did Surupa commit suicide or was she murdered, the court case went on for a long time to solve the mystery.

Surupa died due to Mercuric Chloride in her stomach (Post mortem Report).  

Many tangles of that mystery have not yet been solved. Many blamed Indranath Guha, Surupa's husband. But in the end, Indranath was released. Many believe that Indranath got advantage due to his good relationship with the political party in the government at that time, being the owner of one of the famous schools in Kolkata. All in all, the incident made the front page of the daily newspaper. That story is now taking place on the movie screen. And Arindam Shil is handling his responsibility.

Recently, Arindam directly told a newspaper that the shadow of the mystery of Surupa Guhar's death will be seen in his cinema. Although he has mixed some fantasy and fictional characters with it. Ankita Chakraborty will be seen in one of the important roles in the film. It is heard that Ankita will act in the same role as the character modeled on Surupa.

Arunima Ghosh is playing the role of a leading actress of that time in the film.

Souraseni Moitra will also be there. She is playing the role of a police officer. Indrashis Roy will be seen in the role of a journalist. But there is a surprise about the character modeled after Indranath. Popular Bangladeshi actor Arifin Shuvo will be seen playing this role. All in all, the production of the new film has accumulated quite a lot.

 Arindam named this film '19th April'.
