Over the last couple of days, renowned actor Chanchal Chowdhury has been staying in his hometown of Kamarhat.
Intekhab Dinar has been able to redefine his career when upon stepping into the revolution that was Bangladeshi OTT -- coming up with one after another tremendous performances in this medium. Two of the projects featuring Dinar, released yesterday in two popular OTT platforms—Chorki and Hoichoi. One is the much-anticipated part 2 of the Syed Ahmed Shawki directorial “Karagar”, and the latter is Chorki original, “Café Desire” directed by Robiul Alam Robi.
In August of this year, Part One of the web-series, “Karagar”, took the country by storm. Everyone was discussing the series, trying to unravel the mystery of cell number 145. Directed by Syed Ahmed Shawki, the web-series captured the hearts of audiences on both sides of Bengal. Chanchal Chowdhury's stellar performance left the audience speechless, and they could not help but wait in anticipation for when Part 2 of the series would be released. Everyone who watched Part 1, were eagerly waiting for the release of Part 2—which began streaming on midnight of December 22.
The much anticipated series of the year, "Karagar" part 2, was supposed to stream from December 15. However, the show has been postponed due to the ongoing FIFA world cup.
Upon its release, Hoichoi’s “Karagar” became the talk of the town, garnering an immense, positive response from the audience. Viewers were heavily intrigued by the mystery man, played by Chanchal Chowdhury.
Karagar intrigued me further to explore the world of Bangla Entertainment having their, long-awaited shot on OTT platforms. With a little bit of digging, I came across a few more intriguing Bangla shows with an equal potential to intrigue. Here are my top picks.
