Bratya Basu’s film ‘Dictionary’ is a touching story of a married couple, where Abir Chatterjee plays an introverted forest officer Ashoke Sanyal while Nusrat Jahan plays his wife Smita. Based on two short stories by Buddhadeb Guha, the film also stars Poulami Basu, Bangladeshi actor Mosharraf Karim and Arna Mukhopadhyay in pivotal roles.
‘Dictionary’ also marks Bratya Basu’s return to direction after a long gap of 10 years. Now, the much-awaited official poster is here and it looks every bit intriguing featuring the protagonists.
“I wanted to work on a film based on literature. I had read two Buddhadeb Guha stories many years ago, maybe when I was 20 or 21. When I decided to direct a film after a gap of 10 years, I thought of merging the two stories. Both the stories are haunting. I contemporized the stories and I really felt the urge to direct a film,” the director had told us earlier.
Talking about her character in Bratya’s film, Nusrat had told ETimes: “I play Smita, who is a simple girl. How she deals with her monotonous life is what the film all about. My look in the film too is that of a girl next door.”
