Parambrata Chatterjee: The man who dismantled cop conventions in Bollywood

Submitted by on March 17, 2012 – 10:28 amNo Comment |



You see ‘Kahaani’, and you are all impressed by the young Calcutta cop in it, who plays aide to Vidya Balan’s Mrs. Bagchi, on the lookout for her husband. You wonder why it is that you haven’t seen this actor till now, and head back home searching for more dope on him.

Turns out he is Parambrata Chatterjee, an established Bengali actor in his own right, and probably he couldn’t have asked for a better Bollywood entry. For one, he has totally dismantled the cop conventions that you would associate with Bollywood films. There are no muscles on show, and neither is he a strapping six footer who looks like he might burst out of his clothes any moment. He is just an ordinary guy, as is a majority of police officers in this country, and to add to all that, is downright human an perhaps even a bit vulnerable.

Having started off with television way back in 2002, Parambrata had soon ventured in Bengali films in 2003. He was busy pursuing film studies in UK in 2009, when he was offered ‘Kahaani’, and he jumped at the offer. Hopefully there shouldn’t be a turning back now, and here is also hoping that we get to see him in roles of substance.
