The Japanese Wife

Thursday, January 1, 1970 • Hindi Comments

Saregama brings together the hit team of Mr & Mrs Iyer - Director Aparna Sen and Actor Rahul Bose in The Japanese Wife, which releases on April 09, 2010.

This time, too, Aparna Sen makes an unusual film with an unusual message: How far will you go for love? 

Snehamoy, a schoolteacher in the Sunderbans, and Miyage, a young girl in Japan, meet through letters, fall in love over letters, and even get married through letters! They have been married for 15 years . but have never met.  

In this very tender, lyrically-told, stunningly-photographed film, Snehamoy and Miyage go the distance for their love, from the happy to the funny to the sad, sometimes even the bizarre . Only a director with Aparna Sen's skill could have woven a Love Poem like this on screen.  

Mr. Apurv Nagpal, MD of Saregama, says, "We admire Aparna's work and ability to interpret love. This is not just a film but a lyrical love poem, very different to anything out there in today's age of instant gratification."   

The film features a stellar cast: Miyage is played - for the first time in Indian films - by a Japanese actress, Chigusa Takaku. And the talent of Rahul Bose as Snehamoy, is stretched to its limit as he goes from a college student to an elderly man. And, of course, there is Raima Sen and Moushumi Chatterjee, who bursts back onto the screen after two decades.
