Chander Pahar is an upcoming Bengali film directed by Kamaleshwar Mukherjee and produced by Mahendra Soni and Shrikant Mohta under the banner of their production house Shree Venkatesh Films. The film features Bengali actor Dev in the lead role as Shankar. This film is going to be the first art film of Dev, who had previously been only cast in the mainstream. This is the first collaboration between Dev and Mukherjee.
Chander Pahar is the journey to the fabled, ‘Mountain Of The Moon’, in search of gold and diamond mines, up against threats as vivid and varied as lurking snakes, pouncing lions, poisonous flora, the fury of an active volcano and a seemingly, almost supernatural mythical horror ‘The Bunyip’ the guardian angel of the diamond cave. However it is also the story of grit and determination, a story of following one’s dream against all odds and emerging victorious, a story about a young lad called Shankar who faced with the prospect of having to make a living as a factory worker in his impoverished village With a old aged philosopher named Diego Alvarez.
The film is scheduled to release on December 20, 2013.
