Have you watched Disney’s ‘The Jungle Book’? Well if loved it, get ready for an action-packed adventure movie from the Bengali film industry. The trailer for Amazon Obhijaan featuring famous Dev is out and by the looks of it, one can say that it will be an interesting watch. Directed by Kamaleshwar Mukherjee, this SVF production seems like yet another exciting saga churned out by the talented bunch from Tollywood.
"It is going to be the most expensive Bengali film planned till date with the primitive tribes, jaguars, and anacondas popping up during Shankar's (lead character) trail to the pot of gold - the mythical El Dorado," one of the producers of Shri Venkatesh Films said.
Amazon Obhijaan revolves around celebrated author Bibhutibhushan Bandhopadhyay's fictional character Shankar Roy Chowdhury. In 2013, Dev played the role Chader Pahar, another of the author’s celebrated novel. Amazon Obhijaan will be a continuation of the film and will take Shankar’s journey to a much larger scale in terms of adventure.
The film's trailer has been released in six languages — Bengali, Hindi, Oriya, Assamese, Tamil, and Telugu. Amazon Obhijaan is the only Bengali film that will see a six-language release. The movie came into the limelight recently after it dethroned Baahubali for the title of the film with the largest poster for which it made into the Guinness Book of World Records for the same. Amazon Obhijaan's music has been composed by Debojyoti Mishra. Along with Dev and Svetlana Gulakova, the cast of the film includes Laboni Sarkar, Tamal Ray Chowdhury, and David James.
Amazon Obhijaan is slated for release on 22 December.
