In Bengali life, Durga Puja holds a special place, its ever-present emotions deeply rooted in the community. The composition of Shakta verses, based on ancient myths, features Agamani and Bijoya songs as key elements of the celebration. From myth to common life, parents become anxious for their daughters during autumn, and feelings of love, affection, and emotions become intertwined with our physical existence.
Our film captures the aspects of relationships that blend into daily life discussions, connections, culture, and life values. The essence of Durga Puja continues to impact and shape the lives of the Bengali people, reflecting a rich cultural heritage. The long-time pursuit of commercial endeavors forms a pattern of finding realities behind the scenes, veiled by silence that screams louder than words. In the search for such unspoken narratives, an earnest initiative was made not only to hear but to understand the significance of memories kept as treasures for posterity.
The words “Bijoyar Pore” encapsulate the story of a slice of life. The unsolicited sentiments and unheard voices are summarized and presented in the personas of characters like Aloka, Ananda, Mrinmoyee, and others, each proclaiming their individual aura. These elements culminate in the essence of my debut film, “Bijoya Pore” – Autumn Flies.
