ZEE5, India’s largest home-grown video streaming platform, announced the premiere of the blockbuster Bengali film, Projapati starring Mithun Chakraborty and Dev. The family drama is the 3rd highest-grossing Indian Bengali film and after a blockbuster performance at the box office, it is now heading to ZEE5 for its world digital premiere on 14th April.

Produced by Bengal Talkies and Dev Entertainment Ventures and directed by Avijit Sen, the film also stars Mamata Shankar, Sweta Bhattacharya, Kharaj Mukherjee, Ambarish Bhattacharya, Biswanath Basu, Koneenica Banerjee and Koushani Mukherjee among others. With an IMDB rating of 8.2 and with flying reviews, Projapati has created quite a stir already.

The plot focuses on Gaur Chakraborty (Mithun Chakraborty), a retired man who lives with his wedding planner son Joy (Dev). Gaur’s life revolves around his son whereas the son is not able to reciprocate as much because of his commitment to work. The father wants his son to get hitched, but Joy is hesitant as he fears marriage might take him away from his father. However, the equation between the father and his son changes with the entry of Gaur’s college friend Kusum (Mamata Shankar) into their life. Meeting Kusum rekindles Gaur’s hope of settling down with a partner, and the developments cause an upheaval in the Chakraborty household.

The film marks Mithun Chakraborty’s return to Bengali cinema after a hiatus of 4 years. It also marks the reunion of Mithun Chakraborty and Mamata Shankar after they famously shared the screen for Mrinal Sen’s National Award-winning film Mrigayaa in 1976. A heart-warming family drama, Projapati narrates the story of the sweet and sour relationship shared between a father and son, questions social conventions and touches one’s heart in the guise of a comedy.
