Bengali film Durgeshgorer Guptodhon completes glorious 100 days at Box Office
World Digital Premiere of the film on hoichoi from 1st September
Kolkata, 1st September 2019 – Adding another feather to its cap, the blockbuster treasure hunt film Durgeshgorer Guptodhon completed 100 Glorious Days at the Box Office, becoming one of the few Bengali films to achieve that milestone. Earlier, the film had earned the eminence of being the ‘The Biggest Opener’ and the highest grossing Bengali film of 2019, still holding on to these titles.
The film has been running successfully across theatres regionally and nationally since its release on 24th May 2019 and gave oodles of housefull shows with total 6000 shows across Bengal and 294 shows nationally. Now, as the film hits a century at the Box Office and is still running successfully in theatres, the film will be exclusively available to the audience on the leading Bengali OTT platform – hoichoi. Therefore, people who have missed the opportunity to catch the blockbuster cinema at their nearest theatres will now get an opportunity to watch it only on hoichoi.
hoichoi as a platform, aims to provide its viewers the best of Bengali entertainment. Thus, ensuring that Durgeshgorer Guptodhon becomes available for the worldwide audience was a top priority and the moment the film completed 100 days, hoichoi started streaming the film by giving it a World Digital Premiere.
Speaking about this feat director Dhrubo Banerjee goes on to say, “My first film Guptodhoner Sondhane had completed 75 days at Box Office and my second film Durgeshgorer Guptodhon completed 100 days at Box Office and is also a blockbuster. Achieving this feat with only two films is like a dream for any new filmmaker and I’m thankful to my audience who accepted this film with open arms!”
Talking about this achievement Mahendra Soni, Co-founder & Director, SVF said: “Durgeshgorer Guptodhon is a film that has resonated with the Bengali audience at every level. It has taken Bengali cinema to a new dimension by taking people from the age of 8 to 80 years run to the theatre to catch a glimpse of Sona da and his adventures. I congratulate Dhrubo Banerjee, Abir Chatterjee and the rest of the team for this huge achievement! It’s also my pleasure to announce that the film is streaming exclusively on hoichoi from today, for our worldwide audience to enjoy.”
Directed by Dhrubo Banerjee, the film also stars Anindya Chatterjee, Kharaj Mukherjee, Koushik Sen, Lily Chakraborty, Aryann Bhowmick, June Maliah, Debjani Chatterjee, Arindam Sil, Kamaleswar Mukherjee in pivotal roles and the surreal music has been composed by acclaimed musician Bickram Ghosh.
Durgeshgorer Guptodhon takes the Bengali audience through an exciting treasure quest with ounces of adventure and a dose of Bangaliana. Sequel to the superhit Guptodhoner Sondhane, the films see the suave Professor from Oxford, Subarno Sen aka Sona Da (Abir Chatterjee) return for a second treasure hunt adventure and this time he visits one of his student’s ancestral home along with his favourites – nephew, Aabir (Arjun Chakraborty) and Aabir’s fiancé, Jhinuk (Ishaa Saha). The great grandfather of this student was an erstwhile zamindar and a renowned artist of Bengal. There is a myth that runs in the family that they had once received a massive treasure, but all traces and trails of it had been lost. Sona’da along with Aabir and Jhinuk join a festivity in that mansion in Durgeshgor and stumble upon the lost clues that may lead them in unearthing one of the greatest treasures of Bengal!
The film completed 100 days at Box Office on 31st August 2019 and is streaming exclusively on hoichoi.
