I am always skeptical about remaking classics. Srijit Mukherji has done that with Nayak, Antony Firinghee and Sansayi Raja already, and Shankar’s classic book Chowringhee gets a fresh adaptation now with Shahjahan Regency. The trailer triggers intrigue, I have to say. Though there are a lot of snippets that you see and ask loudly – Why? I am also worried with Abir donning Sata Bose, I think Param will make a fine Shankar though.
What stays back the most? The lovely song that plays throughout the trailer.
Shahjahan Regency releases on January 18, ’19
