Bengali Film “Jongole Mitin Mashi” Teaser Release
During this year's Durga Puja festivities, Koel Mallick will use her upcoming film to advocate for wildlife and environmental protection. She will portray the renowned detective Mitin Mashi, a character conceived by the late author Suchitra Bhattacharya, who fights against poaching. The film is directed by Arindam Sil, known for bringing Mitin Mashi, initially named Praggaparamita Mukhopadhyay, to the big screen in 2019.
In the follow-up installment titled 'Jangale Mitin Mashi,' our intrepid detective embarks on a dangerous mission to confront poachers, navigating challenging landscapes and engaging in intense shootouts. Koel skillfully embodies the character's versatility, seamlessly transitioning between traditional sarees and jeans. The movie boasts a diverse ensemble cast, including Subhrajit Dutta, Asim Roychoudhury, Hiya, Samiul Alam, and Arijit Dutta, each playing distinct roles that enrich the storyline.
During the lively Puja season, when the streets are adorned with decorations and a shopping craze dominates the weekends, Arindam Sil has unveiled an enticing film teaser. The teaser includes a captivating limerick that enhances its appeal. This timing is well-suited because people are more inclined to watch movies during this festive period, providing a favorable opportunity to convey important messages through cinema, a belief held by Sil himself.
Koel Mallick's involvement in her role goes beyond the confines of the film itself. On World Elephant Day, which falls on August 12, she made a visit to the Alipore Zoo. During her visit, she fed cakes to the elephants while also using the opportunity to promote her upcoming film. She was joined by Wildlife Minister Jyotipriya Mallik, Arindam Sil, and Subhrajit, underscoring the collaborative effort behind the conservation message they aim to convey.
This Puja season will witness the release of four films, including Mitin Mashi. The other films to look out for are Raktabeej, directed by Nandita Roy and Shiboprosad Mukherjee; Dev's Bagha Jatin, and Srijit Mukherji's Dawham Awbotaar. The audience can expect to see a star-studded cast featuring Prosenjit Chatterjee, Dev, Koel, Abir Chatterjee, Mimi Chakraborty, and more. Arindam Sil expressed the view that important messages can be effectively conveyed through movies, especially since people tend to watch films during Puja. Mitin Mashi is arriving to convey the crucial message of wildlife conservation.
What distinguishes Mitin Mashi from the rest is its dedication to delivering a pressing message: the conservation of wildlife and natural ecosystems. Amidst the decorated pandals and the festive ambiance in the streets, Mitin Mashi strives to infuse meaning into the celebration, prompting us to reconsider our obligations to the environment.
