From Roma to Suchitra Sen

শনিবার, ১৬ জানুয়ারী ২০১৬

16 January 2016 Suchitra Sen had dominated the silver screen, mostly in Kolkata and briefly in Mumbai, for three decades, beginning in the '50s and ending in mid '70s. After the release of some early films like Sare Chuattur and Ora Thake Odhare, she soon became the heartthrob of millions of men, and a beauty and fashion idol for millions of young women. Women and girls copied her hairstyle, the way she dressed, the subtle way she did her makeup, the bags she carried and even the way she tilted her neck and looked at her hero with an arched eyebrow.

She was the first modern Bengali star in the true sense of the term who broke away from the old concept of acting and introduced a completely new method, approach, manner, voice modulation, fashion and style, taking the silver screen by storm. In one sentence, elegance was in every inch of her persona.


The Superstar is Born

Suchitra Sen turned into a superstar almost overnight when she paired up with matinee idol Uttam Kumar. Together they took Bengali cinema to a new height. The two names worked like magic to ensure box office success for the producers of the time. Agni Pariksha, Moroner Porey, Sobar Uporey, Chawa Pawa, Shap Mochon, Har Mana Har, Indrani, Jiban Trishna, Harano Sur, Alo Amar Alo, Sagorika, Pothey Holo Deri and Shoptpodi are some of the greatest hits this pair has to their credit. Interestingly, she did not have any prior experience or formal training in acting and yet excelled in all kinds of roles that came her way. She was the definitive romantic heroine of her time but she was equally at ease in doing tragic roles. Besides Uttam Kumar, she also worked with other male lead stars like Ashoke Kumar, Bikash Roy and Shoumitra Chatterji.  In Mumbai she paired up with Dev Anand in Bombai Ka Babu, Dilip Kumar in Devdas and Sanjeev Kumar in Andhi.
