Sujoy Ghosh, happy birthday!

The Kahaani director turns forty-six today

Director Sujoy Ghosh’s debut Jhankaar Beats is hailed as the ‘father’ of multiplex films. It got good reviews and over the years went on to become one of the best tributes to music director RD Burman ever made in modern times. Post JB, Sujoy came up with Home Delivery and Aladin, both of which flopped at the BO. The tables turned for him when his VidyaBalan-starrer Kahaani released and caught everyone’s fancy. Not only did it strike gold at the BO, but also became the only Indian film in the Top 50 list in the International Movie Data Base (IMDB). We recently heard that Kahaani is being remade in Tamil and Telugu. Now that Sujoy has made it to the top league in B-town, speculation has already begun about his next.

Presently he is in Kerala writing his adaptation of a Bengali novel, Aranyer Din Ratri (Days And Nights In The Forest), originally filmed by Satyajit Ray in 1970. In a recent interview he said, “I know I’m putting my head on the block. Satyajit Ray is God and the odds are stacked against me. I have to put my best foot forward, because if I go wrong with my favourite Ray film, Bengal will kill me. I love Kolkata, and Kolkata seems to love my song to the city. Let’s hope they like my Days And Nights In the Forest too.” We wish him a blockbuster storytelling journey ahead.
