Bengali Film Gu Kaku - The Potty Uncle

 This is the first time that two of the best actors of two Bengals are going to work in one film. Ritwick Chakraborty and Mosharraf Karim will be seen in new director Manish Basu's new film 'Gu Kaku - The Potty Uncle'.



The film is basically a social satire. This is clearly understood in the statement of director Manish. In his words, “I don't want to tell the story of the picture in detail right now. In short. A marginalized person, how his absence can destroy the whole social system, will come up in the film. It was as if he had returned to everyone with a flute. After his return, it is understood how much he is needed by everyone in the society, rich and poor, irrespective of class.The crisis created by the coming and not coming of this ‘Gu Kaku’ reaches its final stage for the benefit of people from all walks of life. People leave the area if they can. This crisis belongs to the rich-poor-middle class. And that is the picture. "

It has been learned that prominent Bangladeshi actor Mosharraf Karim is playing the role of 'Gu Kaku'. Ritwik Chakraborty in a very interesting character called 'Navakumar Shikari'. The director wrote this character thinking of him. And Aparajita Ghosh as Ritwik's wife. Pictures with unsuccessful cast. Other important characters are Paran Bandyopadhyay, Shantilal Mukhopadhyay, Tanushree Chakraborty, Sushmita Chattopadhyay, Jayi Debray, Payal Mukhopadhyay, Amit Saha, Biswajit Sarkar and Mishka Halim.

The story of the film is basically in the context of the nineties. Director Manish has made advertisements before. He was once involved in the media, but this is his first feature film. Like Ritwik Chakraborty, he was originally from Barakpur. His close contact with the actor has been in the entertainment world since before. As a result, he had long wanted to work with the priest. Eventually the wish is going to be fulfilled. If all goes well, the shooting will start on February 24.

Joy B. Ganguly of 'Mojo Productions' produced the film. Raja Narayan will be in charge of the music of 'Gu Kaku'. Basudev Chakraborty will handle the cinematography.

The film documents the convivial life among the film crew and the hazards, problems and tension of film making on location. The actors live a double life, and the villagers, both simple and not-so-simple, flock to watch their work with wonder and suspicion. But as the film progresses, the recreated past begins to confront the present. The uneasy coexistence of 1943 and 1980 reveals bizarre connection, involving a village woman whose visions add a further dimension of time—that of future.
