Posto (poppy seed) is one traditional food that has been enjoyed by generations of Bengalis. The director have had it, his dad has had it, even his grandfather had it too… it’s a tradition. So the child was named posto.
The most handsome personality of the bengali film industry Jisshu Sengupta, is again back with his awesome personality in the movie Posto. Posto is a movie which revolves around a seven year old boy whose innocent love is bought by his modern day parents.
A seven-year-old Posto lives with his grandparents since both his parents are the modern-day ambitious individuals. Posto cannot imagine a day without his grandparents, Dinen and Gauri, and neither can they. But, one fine day, Posto’s parents are offered an opportunity to settle abroad. Given their ambitious nature, the two decide that this opportunity will also work in the best interest of their son.
However, taking it up meant Posto would have to leave his grandparents. Unwilling to let go of their grandson, Dinen and Gauri fight to gain the custody of the little boy who is torn between making a choice between his parents and grandparents. When they are unable to reach a common ground, the case is dragged to the court, which is where a heart-wrenching story of love and attachment unfolds.
While Soumitra Chatterjee and Lily Chakraborty play grandparents in the film, Jisshu and Mimi will be seen as a couple. This is not the first time senior actors Soumitra and Lily are working together in a film. They had shared screen space in films such as Ajoy Kar’s Kanch Kata Heere (1966) and Satyajit Ray’s Shakha Proshakha (1990).
The movie has already hit the theatres with great fan following.
