Dev at the premiere of Projapati at Priya. The film, starring Dev, Mithun Chakraborty, Mamata Shankar, Sweta Bhattacharya, Koneenica Banerjee and Biswanath Basu, traces the finer nuances of the bond between a father and his son. “Everyone is so happy about Projapati. The feedback is amazing. The film is running to houseful shows everywhere,” smiles Dev.
“It was a dream-come-true situation for me when I got to know that I’ve been cast opposite Devda. I have been a huge fan of Devda... watched his films. I feel honoured to have got this opportunity to work with Devda in Projapati. Devda is so down to earth. He is an amazing human being,” said Sweta Bhattacharya.
“The success of Projapatiis the success of Bangla cinema. People can relate to the story, they can identify with the characters. The film has held up a mirror to society; people can see themselves on screen,” said Atanu Raychaudhuri.
“It feels really good. The audience has connected with the emotions, the bond between the father and son and the humour of the film. The success of Projapati once again proves that the audience will go to the theatres to watch a good story,” said director Avijit Sen.
“Projapati touches the soul. It’s a beautiful family drama that depicts an unbreakable bond between the father and son. The emotion that we hold for our parents is amazingly portrayed in the film. Mithun and Dev’s chemistry has created magic. I loved watching both of them. They made the audience laugh and cry with them. Along with that Mamata Shankar and Koushani were a treat to the eyes. I think this film is going to be a bigger hit than Tonic. I really liked the film,” said Ayoshi Talukdar.
