by Akash Sharma Akash Sharma
Those who follow Bollywood news and watch Hindi flicks know of the exceptional work done by author, columnist, speaker, and brand marketing Guru, Suhel Seth, has done in films like Rog, Guzaarish, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, and Calendar Girls. His exceptional portrayal of a journalist suspected of murder in Pooja Bhatt production (Rog) and of a conflicted doctor in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie (Guzaarish). Regular movie goers have been wanting to watch Seth more on the silver screen and looks like they will soon have their wish. Suhel Seth will now soon be seen in the Bengali flick Senapati directed by Arnab Riingo Banerjee.

Senapati is an upcoming Bengali movie directed by eminent director Arnab Riingo Banerjee and starring Riya Sen, Parambrata Chatterjee, and Suhel Seth in lead roles. Director Banerjee terms it his dream project and the film also features Uttam Kumar’s grandson, Gaurab Chatterjee, and Soumitra Chatterjee’s grandson, Ranodeep Bose in significant roles. Bollywood star Abhinav Shukla and Pakistani actress Mayal Khan are also in the film.

Suhel Seth was born in Kolkata and is a co-author of the popular book Kalighat to Calcutta. Having grown up in the city, he was heavily influenced by the art and drama culture of Bengal. His love of language, his humour and wit, and his acting skills reflect the Bengali influence. It comes as no surprise, then, that Seth was a natural choice when it came to the character of Max Wheeler, an undercover FBI agent. Suhel Seth swag and attitude are just what the character needs, says the director Riingo. The film’s plot revolves around the story of a gangster family and the murky dealings between the underworld and eminent political figures. The plot draws from the epic Mahabharata and the ever popular Godfather series.

Suhel Seth fans will now have an opportunity to watch him speak Bengali on the silver screen. Despite only having watch Bengali cult classics such as the films by Satyajit Ray and Mrinal Sen, Seth only has appreciation for contemporary Tollywood flicks and looks forward to the release of the film. Senapati reflects the ethos of Bengal, he says. His only lament is the lost culture of English drama in the capital city, Kolkata. Perhaps with Senapati’s release, Seth may consider coming back and reviving it. Till then Bengali movie fans in the state and across the globe look forward to the release of Senapati.
