IFFI: 'Nauka Doobi' premieres at the film festival in Goa
Based on a short story by Tagore, Rituparna Ghosh's 'Nauka Doobi' is a sensitive tale of two star crossed couples....

Panaji: Bengali film Nauka Doobi is directed by eight time national award winner, Rituparno Ghosh. The premiere was attended by Subhash Ghai (His banner Mukta Arts has produced the film) and one of the actresses in the film, Riya Sen.

The movie stars Riya Sen, Raima Sen and Prosenjit Chatterjee. Noted lyricist Gulzar has translated Tagore's lyrics into Hindi for the film. Talking just before the premiere, Ghai told us that Rituparno Ghosh had to cancel his visit to Goa at the last minute, because he had fractured his leg.

An emotional film, Nauka Doobi (boat wreck) is set in the 1920s.

Nauka Doobi is based on a short story by Rabindranath Tagore, which depicts the tussle between true love and social conventions related to marriage. Law student Ramesh is in love with his friend's sister Hemnalini, and is about to propose to her. But his father summons him saying that he has fixed another match for him. Ramesh is forced to marry Sushila, whom he has not even seen. Soon after, the boat that the newly married couple and Ramesh's father are travelling in capsizes and a series of events unfolds...

The film raises issues about the conventional ideas of marriage and love.
