PJJR is the story that revolves around the lives of Indians living abroad who often tends to adapt to foreign cultures as their own while consciously or unconsciously forgetting the rich traditions back home.
Anamika changes to Anna, as does Siddharta to Sid not only in names but in lifestyle too. Their parents realize and are hell bent on introducing them to the place and culture they belong to – Bengal!
Anna’s ( Shubhoshree ) parents bring her to Kolkata hoping to find someone suitable. That is where Raj ( Dev ) meets her. A Bengali boy hailing from a traditional family Raj often gets carried away into a world of romantic illusions , but for Anna such gestures are a mere habit back in Malaysia . With time she likes his simple ways and they turn out to be good friends. The friendship takes a different turn as Raj sees it in a different light and lands up with the family in Malaysia.
As the story progresses it brings forth a love story of a different latitude where traditions still matter, where one learns to respect his / her individuality, where one realizes that to embrace the best of one culture you need not sacrifice your own. …. That love alone can change the way we see the world.
Directed by Mr. Ravi Kinagi, the forthcoming blockbuster from Shree Venkatesh Films will be releasing July 2009 , in 115 theatres . Mr. Harish Joshi ‘s ( Rajarshi Pictures ) cinematography gives this Family Drama a different edge as he captures Malaysia in its true flavor as much as he captures Kolkata and North Bengal.
After a line of hits through 2008 and 2009 Jeet Ganguly once again is sure to get everyone singing to his tune.
