The official trailer of Tollywood film director Mukul Roy Chaudhury's latest flick, 'Taan' was released recently by the Calcutta Rowing Club in the presence of actor Debdoot Datta, actresses Debleena Dutta and Rituparna Sengupta.
'Taan' is based on the combination of Mukul Roy Chaudhury's own experience and inspiration from a novel, 'Jolbeshya' by famous Bangladeshi writer Al Mahmud.
The director in the course of his work in the wilds of Sunderbans came across a group of strange women who lived in small country boats and made money by selling snakes, poison and their own flesh.
These women, who were known by the name 'Jolbeshya' or the 'Boat Prostitutes', had a nameless existence as they lived in the no man's land around the Burma -Bangladesh border.
The film takes off when a wildlife photographer goes missing in the Sunderbans and his friend sets out in search of him.
Rituparna plays the role of a Jolbeshya, the head of the group of boat prostitutes, a woman of exquisite beauty and pleasure.
The film has some steamy dance numbers performed by Ritupana and Debleena, choreographed by Stanley D'costa
The music of 'Taan' has been composed by Indraadip Dasgupta.
'Taan' is slated to be released on Feb 7.
