Trishna is a 2009 Bengali film directed by Pritam Jalan .The film is starring Rituparna Sengupta , Angshuman Gupta (finalist in Grasim Mr India 2006) and Arindam Seal. This film was Objection for Vulgurity by West Bengal Film Publicity Act that Rituparna Sengupta was showing too much Skimpy, seductive.However, the West Bengal Film Publicity Act rejected the public presentation of some movie posters of Trishna. The West Bengal Film Publicity Act is basically a local body who gives clearance for films to be released in West Bengal only. Such act does not exist in any other Indian States. This movie is a Bengali remake of Bipasha Basuand John Abraham starrer Hindi film “Jism” The Telegraph commented that “Though almost a scene-by-scene copy of John Abraham-Bipasha Basu’s Jism, Pritam Jalan’s Trishna is nothing more than a sleaze fest with Tolly’s leading heroine ‘showing’ the way”.
Trishna is a bengali remake of the superhit “Jism” that made Bipasha Basu famous in her career. Rituparna Sengupta is doing Bipasha Basu in Trishna while Angshuman plays John Abraham. Jism was full of sex and exposure. So does the Bengali version “Trishna“. Bipasha Basu did Jish in her early career. She always had a super sexy body and a modeling background. Rituparna Sengupta has been in the industry for a very long time and she already passed her glorious days with Prosenjit Chakraborty. However, Rituparna is all set to score highest points for being the “sexiest Bengali actress of all time” in trishna. She is bold and beautiful in her bras and swimwear and towels. The film Trishna (2008) is however a remake of the original Jism, it is not a 100% copy. We can not wait to watch the sizzling Rituparna doing a “sexy loner” role in the movie. Debutant director Pritam Jalan gave a complete new look to Rituparna – curled hair, smokey eyes, skimpy cloths. She is girl name “Piyasha” in the film synonymous with “Trishna”. She said that this is her first film showing lots of skin to her fans however she did not cross her limit. It would be very interesting to see the success for the film. Somewhat orthodox culture of Calcutta may not accept such a sex-full Bengali movie at all. Or, the new generation may find the trend in Bengali movie wonderful. In an interview with Sreya Basu Rituparna Sengupta mention she is “sisterly” towards Angshuman who wend red doing the “steamy” scenes!
