*National award winning actor Rituparna Sengupta’s film ‘Ahaa Re’ selected among 25 best Asian films*
In the middle of the pandemic, since most of us have been hoarding for the quarantine, Asian Movie Pulse announced 25 great films about food. National award winning actor Rituparna Sengupta’s film ‘Ahaa Re’ selected among 25 best Asian films made about food of all time. It is included among timeless classics ‘Eat Drink Man Woman’ & ‘Tampopo’.
“It is a good surprise in the middle of this unfortunate situation which is a silver lining. I am a foodie and the film ‘Ahaa Re’ is a heartwarming story and is very close to my heart. The way it allowed to express the sentiments tells a lot about a film. I am very happy about it got selected with classical films on food. As a Bengali, food holds the most important part of our life and culture and I am glad I could show it through my films on an international platform.”
“Ahaa Re” is an emotional roller coaster where food plays an integral part. The strive for perfect love here has been portrayed as a beautiful dish of Bengali cuisine which Raja is in search of. And director Ranjan Ghosh places all the characters in the movie brilliantly to add up the spices in that perfect “Love Cuisine” of Raja and Bashundhar. Basundhara’s feeling of love is submerged under an eventful but sad past, which needed the youthful aura of Farhaz for an emotional outburst. And it has been captured brilliantly by director Ranjan Ghosh. “Ahaa Re” stands out as a beautiful movie with a unique expression of youthful love”.
