Watch: Bengali adventurer Shankar goes in search of El Dorado in ‘Amazon Obhijaan’ trailer

Written and directed by Kamaleshwar Mukherjee, the adventure film is scheduled for a December 22 release.

Four years after the release of the big-budget gamble that was Chander Pahar (Mountains of the Moon), its makers are back with the second installment in the franchise: Amazon Obhijaan (Amazon Adventures).

Chander Pahar was based on the cult Bengali novel by Bibhutibhushan Bandhopadhyay of the same name and starred Dev as its thrill-seeking hero, Shankar Roy Chowdhury. The sequel, Amazon Obhijaan, has an original story by writer-director Kamaleshwar Mukherjee based on Bandhopadhyay’s characters.

Produced by Shree Venkatesh Films and billed as the most expensive Bengali movie ever, Amazon Obhijaan will be released on December 22 in five more languages: Hindi, Oriya, Assamese, Tamil and Telugu.

The first film followed Shankar’s adventures in Africa where he faced off man-eating lions, black mambas and a mythical monster, Bunyip. Amazon Obhijaan sends Shankar to the Amazon rainforest where he looks for El Dorado, the lost city of gold. Shankar is seen teaming up with a bunch of white explorers as he fights off jaguars, anacondas and seemingly malevolent tribes.

Amazon Obhijaan also stars Laboni Sarkar, Svetlana Gulakova and David James.

A phone so stunning that it deserves its own photoshoot

Presenting the Moto X4, crafted to perfection.

Precision-crafted glass and metal design, an anodised aluminium frame, easy to hold and featuring beautiful contours, the Moto X4 is crafted to perfection indeed.

With the distinctive placement of the rear cameras, this phone makes a great subject for a photographic series.

The light reveals the fluidity of its body; curves that fit perfectly in the contours of a palm.

Reclining on a bed of satin, the glass-encased phone blends into the folds of the luxurious fabric.

The slimness, seamlessness and solidity of the phone make for a great profile shot.

A stunning design which is IP68 rated water-resistant too, it is as beautiful as it is strong.

We partnered with photographer Gaurav Sawn to create this series. Says Gaurav, “The glass sandwich design looks extremely good and the reflections on the back panel make the phone stand out. This is a phone that is best used without a case. The curved corners were also very comfortable to hold. All in all, really enjoyed shooting this phone!”

While this phone is elegant and crafted to perfection, it is also extremely tough, being protected from scratches with Corning® Gorilla® Glass that stretches all the way around.

You don’t need to sacrifice of performance either. It’s packed with a 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 630 processor and comes with a TurboPower™ Charger which means hours of power in minutes!

For the music lover, this phone is a boon. With simultaneous connectivity of up to four Bluetooth® audio devices at the same time, you can build your own stereo system without worrying about cables.

The dual rear cameras – a 12MP that lets you focus faster and get great results even on dark, cloudy days, and an 8 MP camera, with wide angle lens makes your most ambitious photos look all the more impressive.
