Down the memory lane with Mrinal Sen
orky Sadan was decorated with nostalgic photographs of Mrinal Sen by Nasir Ali Mamun. All the photographs were taken when Mrinal Sen revisited Faridpur (in Bangladesh) his birth place, after 48 years. The whole Exhibition was to commemorate the maestro's 91st birthday (14th May 2013).
When Sen had visited his hometown, thousands of people were there to see the director. After landing in Faridpur, Sen had exclaimed, “Amake keu bolo na amar barir rasta, jodi bhul pothe jai tokhon bolo”
Sen was also found to be regretting the way he used to lead his life, "Mone hoy jodi abar kore jibon ta phire petam, tahole onek kichu bodle dite partam".
Maverick In Flash Back - On The Journey of Master to His Birth Place is being organized by Eisenstein Cine Club & RIALTO institute of acting.
The opening day guests were Dr. Pabitra Sarkar, Sri Shamik Bandhyopadhyay, Sri Dwijen Bandhyopadhyay, Nasir Ali Mamun and Sri Mrinal Sen.
Other than this, the organizers have planned for movies by Sen, to be screened from May 21st to May 24th, 2013.
An absolute treat for the cine-goers we say!
