Ram Kamal Mukherjee‘s tribute to Rituparna Ghosh is vital to be well-versed with the changing trends of Bengali cinema, pre-Ray, post-Ray and the arrival of Rituparno Ghosh.

During an exclusive conversation with International Business Times, India director Ram Kamal Mukherjee shared about A Tribute to Rituparno Ghosh: Season’s Greetings was more of a tribute to the 12 times national award-winning director.

“I worked with him in Noukadubi, during the promotions and marketing. Personally, I knew him well. I met him on the sets of Chokher Bali. After that, we fought and we stopped talking to each other. Much later at the premiere of the film we patched up, he invited me to watch his film, where Aishwarya Rai was cast opposite Prasenjit Chatterjee,” said Ram Kamal Mukherjee.

So when Romita (Celina Jaitly) and Suchitra (Lillette Dubey) start fighting, it reminded him of Unishe April. He added that a lot of people were able to find a connection with Unishe April because it is a mother-daughter story.

Earlier whenever there has been a tribute to a public figure, the work of art has been a biopic or a remake of an old film. Rama Kamal has presented something differently. He tried to use Ritu da’s cinematic style and iconic characters and use them in a film.

About his favourite Rituparno Ghosh films, Rama said: Bariwali, Chokher Bali, Titli, Subho Mohorot. It’s the first time he tries to do a thriller.

About the news of his sudden death, Rama said: Oh god, don’t tell me. One morning I heard that he was no more! I suddenly got a text from Tota Roy Chowdhury’ Ritu da nei’. I immediately called him up and said, what are you saying. Then I called, Jisshu, Bumba da, then I wrote an obituary on Stardust. Stardust never prints obituaries, but I had to fight to write about him.
