Kolkata, Nov 4 (IBNS): With his critically acclaimed role of a solitary, single screen owner fighting against the digital onslaught in IFFI award winner Cinemawala (2016) still getting rave reviews, veteran actor Paran Bandyopadhyay said he was confident about essaying any role offered to him with panache if briefed properly.

"Tell me the situations, the traits of any damn character, the particular moment you want to capture on screen and I am confident about etching that out in a believable manner. This comes from my understanding human psyche as a stage actor," Paran, now waiting to see audience appreciation for the upcoming ‘Beche Thakar Gaan’ on old age homes, tells IBNS at the trailer launch of the film 'Benche Thakar Gaan.'

Paran had acted in more than 60 films in Bengali film industry already.

The 'Peace Haven (2016)' actor, who has become an integral part of all the middle of the road cinemas churned out in Bengal now, says he believes in close observation of people which helped to essay different roles to perfection.

“None of the characters I had portrayed this year – either the passionate and non-compromising single screen owner in Cinemawala (Kaushik Ganguly) or one of the three old characters in Peace Haven (Suman Ghosh) who find new meaning of life and mock death, or the elderly inmate of an old age home believing in good things in life in upcoming ‘Benche Thakar Gaan’ (Abhijit Guha-Sudeshna Roy) – were imaginary or unreal or invented by the director.

“I had seen all these people including passionate owners of sick business units or elderly persons shunned and neglected by their families but still not losing the will to live and enjoy from close quarters since teenage days and picked up their traits easily when asked to potray a similar role. None of them appeared from my known social surroundings,” Sandip Ray’s  ‘Jekhane Bhooter Bhoy’  actor, says..

“I am young at heart and for me age is just a number,” Paran, who had also essayed the role of a local mentor to a young crusader against crimes against women in a 2013 Bengali blockbuster Proloy, based on a real life incident about the murder of a school teacher Barun Biswas in a North 24 Parganas village Gaighata, says.

“I believe my stint with stage theatre in IPTA had enriched me on the creative front and completed me as an actor. It contributed in me watching the most contastng creature as man. A living creature which showers his son with affection in the morning and throttles the same son to death in the darkness of night. Only man is capable of such act," he adds.

“And if you can grasp the complexities of man’s nature, the wide range of human emotions and portray the character believably, you turn successful as an actor,” Paran says.

Asked about one character he had not essayed so far and would love to, Paran says, “I never think about characters which I have not been able to grasp so far (‘adhara choritro’)."

"I will rather wait for the director to offer me a role which I had not done so far and leave it for them to decide,” Paran, having done Bhooter Bhabisyot and Open Tee Bioscope among previous films, says.

Coming to his role as an inmate in old age home in ‘Benche Thakar , Paran says the issue about respect to elders and looking after them at their advanced age can’t be taught in any institution or any book. It is something which stems from deep within.

”There is one school of thought among the young generation. To dump parents at a home when they find them obsolete in their surroundings at home and social circle. Such attitude, if going on indefinitely, will spell doom,” he says about the Abhijit Guja-Sudeshna Roy film.
