Ash’s winning performance in Chokher Bali:

Aishwarya Rai is the most beautiful face on the Indian screen today a compliment she has heard repeatedly. But her talent as an actress got noticed with her unforgettable performances in Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s HUM DIL DE CHUKE SANAM and DEVDAS. Portions of her forthcoming film, the much-discussed CHOKHER BALI [her first Bengali film], directed by Rituparno Ghosh, were screened exclusively for this writer and the feeling one is left with at the conclusion of the screening is of utmost contentment. Ash will win accolades not only at the national level, but international acclaim will follow as well. Based on Rabindranath Tagore’s novel of the same name, CHOKHER BALI is set in the pre-independence era, in the early 20th century Bengal. It is a psychological study of relationships between the sexes in a well-to-do family, of shifting eternal triangles, complex motivations, subtle play of emotions. The story revolves around four protagonists Mahendra [Prosenjit], his friend Behari [Toto Roychowdhury], Mahendra’s wife Ashalata [Raima Sen] and Ashalata’s widowed friend Binodini [Aishwarya Rai]. The look of the film, the setting, the ambience, the performances every aspect of the film keeps you mesmerised. Undoubtedly, film-making is a director’s medium and Rituparno’s contribution looms large in every frame, every sequence. CHOKHER BALI is currently in its post-production stages and is slated for October 2003 release. Click here to view the exclusive stills from the movie
