Srijit MukherjiAt the point when Srijit Mukherji, with an expert tag of being a Presidencian, (understudy of Presidency College) surrendered the lucrative offer at Bangalore-his Mphil sponsored occupation as an econometrician and wandered into the profound magical waters of – theater and movies, much to his dismay what anticipated him. Maninak Bhaumik another chief in the film making circle needs to say “in 2008, I met a shrewd, aggressive youthful fellow in a coffeehouse, who had left his occupation, life and the entire world behind in the urgent longing to become showbiz royalty in the motion picture business.” Theaters were his first love in Bangalore and as Srjit feels, “We don’t generally wind up wedding our first love,” and regardless of his panache and live in connection with theater; he wedded movies and turned into an executive. Totally enthralled by the appeal of film Srijit has drawn the guide of business silver screen once more. “The time has come to move far from the static and claustrophobic methods for filmmaking,” elucidates Srijit, who was recompensed the Young Achiever Award from Rotary International, the Shera Bangali Award from ABP Anando and the Shoilojanando Mukhopadhyay Memorial Award in 2012 for his commitment in film bearing.
Expressionism in his films
Srijit Mukherji is among the rising Bengali executives who look to re-characterize the lens through which Bengal, and Kolkata have been generally seen in movies. “My Kolkata is not about beautiful verse, puchka, Howrah Bridge and Kumartuli icons. There is a monstrous side to the city, an underbelly that exists together with its social side. ”
Not one to be sorted as a class executive, Srijit says that movies are an augmentation of the chief. “Like an online journal, movies are a statement of an executive’s perspective, characteristics, and conviction frameworks. Yes, I loathe rehashing myself, yet however flexible my directorial style, in a few ways, my movies bear a Srijitian mark,” says the chief, who’s likewise an on-screen character and lyricist.
Srijit was as of late in Bangalore for the screening of three of his movies — Autograph , Baishe Srabon and Hemlock Society — as a feature of Toto Funds the Arts’ “New Voices in Indian Films” at the National Gallery of Modern Art. He says that his movies are an impression of “elevated authenticity”. “My sentimentalism is not about green paddy fields and bullock trucks. It speaks the truth dark smoke radiated by stacks, tramlines, showings, and a battle for presence. Authenticity is a subjective term on the grounds that reality contrasts from individual to individual. Ritwik Ghatak’s existence of a Bengal that was partitioned by class and social refinements is boundlessly not the same as the chilly, calm reality of Ingmar Bergman’s Sweden.
Another crusader in the lasting war of significant silver screen is Srijit Mukherji, who not just captivates his group of onlookers by his mark movies however has been sufficiently effective to convey back the urban crowds to theater once more. He is a pioneer figure massively in charge of the turnaround of parallel silver screen in Bengal. Confirmed to the bong roots but with a faraway look in his eyes Srijit has a place with that type of executives who craving to investigate the unexplored, break free from the customary generalizations and put a mark on their self made brands.
Francis Ford Coppola had once disclosed (though in a deciphered sense) “Most systems in Cinema been conceived by individuals who didn’t comprehend what to do.” Srjit clearly realizes what to do with the horde subjects that catch the states of mind of his characters and the adventure related of the characters, the group of onlookers and the executive; the commander of the boat. A self educated producer, Srijit is known not just with the characters that runs his movies or the out of the container substance, yet even the camera edges and shots. It is anything but difficult to perceive his movies as the ‘Srijitian brand’ however he is steadfast in brazenly grasping any specific class. There is a tone of energetic lyricism, lively climate, proud instruction that is immediately opined through the cadent dialogs and a listless environment of the subjects. To put it plainly, they are in actuality lyrical verse.
