He is my childhood Hero. I have grown up witnessing his artistry. Every Bengali women dreamt about his heroism in their adolescence period. He is none other than Soumitra Chatterjee, the iconic Bengali actor from India. This living legend has amazed me always with his outstanding talent. Whenever I see him in Big screen or narrating any piece, I become spellbound with his charisma. And, he has done it once more - this time with his undying spirit. Yes, 80 years old Mr. Chatterjee made his debut in singing with a jingle for Nutrela’s kacchi ghani mustard oil.

If you are regular at my FaceBook page, then you already knew that I can't live without relishing Bengali food. So, when he mentioned about shorshe illish, luchi alur dom, parshe macherjhal, dhokar dalna in this jingle, I could not resist but fall in love with him, once again. Those authentic Bengali delicacies along with my favorite actor - this jingle has already made a special space in the corner of my heart. And, if you guys watch the making of this jingle in Youtube, you will surely react like me. Soumitra Chatterjee barely would have spent time to grasp the tune, rhythm and ‘bhab’. And as he got going, he was singing with Elan and it was just fun. 

Have you seen this video? Not yet? Here you go!

Lord!!! what an attitude he has! I must say Soumitra Chatterjee has really done a remarkable job at the age of 80 where as Amitava Bachhan did it at his 60. His voice is crystal clear just like a trained singer. He is sparkling with his brilliance! I salute this immortal sole. His creativity, his eccentricity and his mannerism leave an enduring footprints in our heart.

Is he your favorite, too? Do you like this video? Share your thoughts, please! :-)

  1. So glad to read about him. He is my fav. too.

  2. Great to read about him, I am not from bengal, so honestly don't really know much about him, but he seems like a great artist!! I remember listening to some Rabindra Sangeet and SD Burman's bengali rendition of some bhajans..Bengali music has a tranquil, almost spiritualistic feel to it! Wish I could speak the language:-)Great post!
    Hope you are having a wonderful day!
