Two Legends and Their Lives: Uttam Kumar Suchitra Sen

Soumitra Chatterjee and Suchitra Sen

Soumitra Chatterjee and Suchitra Sen

There is a scene in ‘Saat Paake Bandha’ where Suchitra Sen has to tear the vest that Soumitra is wearing. Supposedly she repeated the same at an after party for the film’s success. The photograph is from the same after party. Something that no one but her, could have even imagined doing in that age!

Suchitra Sen is the first Bengali actress to be awarded in an international film festival (Best Actress award for Saat Paake Bandha in the 1963 Moscow film festival).

Saat Paake Bandha was later remade in Hindi as Kora Kaagaz, starring Jaya Bhaduri and Vijay Anand

Silhouette Magazine is a platform for gathering myriad views on film (and allied art forms) and to continue with the flux of discourse. The Silhouette publications are our attempt to achieve this goal.
