Moushumi Chatterjee is indeed a stellar example of how nothing could prevent talents from making waves inside a profession where that’s usual to blow the final trumpet for just an actor no faster.
The teenage family of famous composer Hemant Kumar started her career as a teen in Tarun Majumdar’s Bengali drama, Balika Badhu, and was lovingly referred to as Indu by good friends.
She had already been wedded to Hemantda’s son, Jayanta when she started production on the debut Hindi movie.
The film world lighted up in front of her joyful charms and careless manner because she was pretty, puckish, and amusing.
Balika Badhu (1967)
As the naive, inadequately bride in Tarun Majumdar’s old conversation, Moushumi Chatterjee emanates purity, which has been later recreated in Hindi with Sachin as well as Rajni Sharma therein leads.
Moushumi’s beautiful depiction of a youthful woman’s unwavering loyalty to their childhood friend is one of several versions of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s Parineeta.
In this famous Shakti Samanta tearjerker, a blinded girl meets a severely ill child, which has bittersweet repercussions.
Moushumi was nominated for Best Actress Filmfare for her subtle performance, but she missed out now to Dimple Kapadia as well as Jaya Bachchan with Bobby and Abhimaan, correspondingly.
Zehreela Insaan (1974)
Rishi Kapoor’s gloomy persona is most recognized again for chartbuster O Hansini. He is pressured to make his beloved sibling a place at a single point.
Moushumi’s comfort with so much strangeness even as the woman in question seems admirable.
Roti Kapda Aur Makaan (1974)
Despite cramming in a horrible rape scenario with Moushumi, Manoj Kumar mulls about proletarian difficulties and community empowerment.
“It was difficult to shoot the sequence. My hair was long, and there was a lot of flour on my head and body during the action. I began to perspire, and everything became caught in my hair. ‘I started weeping” she is said to have said.
During Manzil’s rainy tune, Rimjhim Gire Saawan, king Big B and Moushumi Chatterjee strolling hand-in-hand amid Bombay rainfall provide an unparalleled peek into their magnificent connection.
Piku, directed by Shoojit Sircar, meets up Moushumi Chatterjee alongside the Manzil co-star while also reinforcing her role as Deepika Padukone’s not-one-to-mince-words aunt.
Goynar Baksho (2013)
With yet another Aparna Sen film, the actress echoes portions of that characterization.
While she isn’t frightening the life outta the stammer niece-in-law, she is deliciously brilliant in her portrayal of an angry but lusty spirit still clinging on all her earthly belongings.
