Anik Dutta’s ‘Aparajito’ will screen at the Toronto International Film Festival


Bengali director Anik Dutta’s new film “Aparajito” (The Undefeated), a tribute to legendary filmmaker Satyajit Ray, will be screened at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival later this year. Producer Firdausal Hasan told PTI that he was informed by the management of the Toronto International Film Festival that “Aparajito” had been selected to screen, which is “a great honor”.

The film festival is scheduled to be held from September 8 to 22.

“Aparajito,” starring young actor Jeetu Kamal as Aparajito Roy, revolves around his struggles directing his first film “Pather Padabali,” Dutta said. “The film is based on the indomitable journey of one of the world’s greatest filmmakers who overcame all obstacles to release ‘Pather Panchali’, which put Bengali cinema on the world map,” said the director, who has award-winning films such as ‘Bhooter Bhobisyot’ and ‘Borunbabur Bondhu’ to his credit, had said earlier.

“Aparajito” had a special screening in Mumbai on May 2 and received praise from iconic film personalities like Shyam Benegal. It is also set to screen at the London Indian Film Festival, which runs from June 17 to July 3.

The film will be commercially released on Friday.
