Ek Je Chhilo Raja - Bengali Movie: San Francisco Premiere

"Truth is stranger than fiction, History is stranger than the Truth."

The Film - "Ek Je Chhilo Raja" - already hailed as a masterpiece by iconic director Srijit Mukherji - brings a larger-than-life true story to the silver screen ! The story revolves around Mejho Kumar - MahaRaja Mahendra Kumar Chowdhury, brilliantly played by Jisshu Sen Gupta - who oversees one of the princely states in Bengal during the British rule and the legendary story of Bhawal Raja and Sanyasi. 

The Prince Bhawal Rajah falls ill and is taken far away for treatment, where he presumably dies. But a thunderstorm saves him from the funeral Pyre and a band of Sanyasi's take him and recovers him back to health. But he loses his memory and wanders around for 12 years. While in Chittagong, he remembers and his guru tells him to go back to his estate. But, the British - by then managing the Estate for the family - refuses to acknowledge him as the Prince - starting a legal battle that is still a landmark case in British Law. And, you have to watch the rest to see how it ends !

Produced under the banner of SVF Films, and Directed by maestro Srijit Mukherji - "Ek Je Chhilo Raja" is a riveting spectacle that only a silver screen can deliver ! You will be transported back in time - the sets, the costume, the make up and the grandeur as well as the frugal life-styles of the Sanyasi's - are masterly shown on screen throughout the Film !

The Film stars Jisshu Sen Gupta, Jaya Ahsan, Aparna Sen and Anjan Dutta among others. 

This is a Srijit must see film.
