When someone goes to get divorce in Bengal, it is suggested by the court that once you must see ‘Belesheshe’.


Directed by Nandita Rai and Shivprasad Mukherjee under the banner of film producer company Windows Production, the Bengali film ‘Belashuru’ is going to release on 20 May 2022.
After fifty years of marriage in ‘Belasheshe’, after raising his three daughters and a son, Vishwanath decides to divorce his wife Aarti. He feels that his married life has become boring. This is the story of a Bengali family, which raises many such family issues that we face daily, but we ignore them and the joy in our lives is lost because of it. In a normal life, everything is going well in the family when Vishwanath, in old age, seeks a divorce from Aarti.
The upcoming film ‘Belashuru’ is not a sequel to 2015’s ‘Belasheshe’, but the life events of the main characters of Belasheshe move ahead in it. This story is based on the true story of a family living in Dum Dum. The sanctified mind Nandi and Geeta Nandi belonged to Dum Dum, both passed away before the era of Kovid. It is also a coincidence that the actors Soumitra Chatterjee and Swatilekha Sengupta, who played both the lead characters in the film, are no more. The main characters of both the films are same. The story of Belashuru is an independent story, so the surnames of both the main characters have changed from Majumdar to Sarkar. His stories have changed with the changing times. Belashuru depicts different forms of love.
Vishwanath understands the responsibilities of the family but also respects his feelings and desires and seeks a divorce from his wife Aarti. But looking at the trailer and songs of Belashuru, it seems that in the next film, Vishwanath is now giving more priority to Aarti’s care. Now instead of giving time to the whole family, he is giving more time to his wife and his dear ones. Here one can see the wonderful depth of Aarti and Vishwanath’s love. Aarti is such a woman from a middle class family, whose whole world is only her family. Her passionate dialogue in Belaseshe leaves an indelible mark in people’s hearts when she tells her husband Vishwanath that ‘I ask God to call you before me because I will live without you but you will take care of me in old age’ Will not be able to live without it.
The role of Vishwanath’s elder daughter is played by Aparajita Adhya and son-in-law Barin is played by Kharaj Mukherjee. They both make an impression not just as a happy couple. The role of Malayashree aka Mili is played by Rituparna Sengupta. Mili is not happy with her married life and is in love with another man apart from husband Bijan (Sujoy Prasad Chatterjee). Mili initially realizes that after an age when the physical attraction wears off, friendship and love remain together till the end. In the film, the role of Piu is played by Monami Ghosh, the youngest and dearest member of the family. Piu and Palash (Anindya Chatterjee) play the role of a loving young couple in Bealasheshe. In the beginning, both of them have depicted the state of love in married life in the modern era. Dr. Abhijit
