Vidya Balan debut film “Bhalo Theko” director Gautam Halder passes away


Movie maker Gautam Halder, whose debut

directorial cinema “Bhalo Theko” in which Vidya Balan made her entry into the filmdom, passed away in a city hospital following a massive cardiac arrest on Friday, official sources said.

They said the film maker and actor breathed his last at private hospital early today.

His debut directorial film ” Bhalo Theko” in 2003 also received many

accolades as well as the national prize in which Vidya Balan made her

entry into the

entertainment industry. He also made Nirvan where Rakhi Guljar was the

;lead actress in 2019.

Graduated from Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Centenary (V.C.)

College, Rahara.Goutam Halder was also an Indian theatre actor

as he was a member of the theatre group Nandikar and performed in

plays like Sesh Sakkhatkar, Football, Pheriwalar Mrityu, Meghnadbadh

Kabyo and Borda.

Among many of his successful undertakings, Sojon Badyiar Ghaat must be

named. Meghnad badh kabya is a completely different genre of theater


Goutam Halder’s solo performance was based on music, poetry, movements

and dance. Then he started another group, Naye Natua, and

staged Meghnadbadh Kabyo, Borda Borda (A story by Munshi Premchand) ,

Jaal (written by Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay),Thakurmar Jhuli, Haoai,

Othello and Moimonsingha Geetika. He has acted in the title role of

the play Sakharam produced by Prachyo.

Gautam Haldar’s debut film Bhalo Theko offered an alternative

philosophy, an ideology other than the materialistic philosophy of a

competitive, careerist existence. He achieved

this through the central character Anandi (Vidya Balan in her debut

role) who loves nature, poetry, music, much more than she cares about

the fiery ambitions of her scholarly boyfriend. Her world is defined

by commitment to her family, and is filled with the chirping of birds,

the blooming of flowers, the planting of a sapling that blooms into a

tree, with music practiced by her uncle (Soumitra Chatterjee) and with

nostalgic journeys into a past dominated by an extremist older brother

who disappears into the night and never comes back.
