KANCHAN BABOO – by Arijit Biswas


TITLE SEQUENCE
1A. INT. NIGHT. CALCUTTA PUB

We catch the song at the crescendo. Bursting out……..

From close midshot of singer‘s chest and hand the camera pulls
back in a wild arc and shows us….

TRISHA, 32, singing with gay abandon….the song is of desire…

DESIRE RULES THE CITY….

With quick but fluid movements the camera runs across the pub…
smoke filled…staRk blue lasers…cutting thru smog….vapid and happy
faces..impersonal but lustfilled eyes….

Behind the singers…a cutout of Kolkata skyline with sparkling


lights dominate the wall…

Smoke rises…..lasers cut the city….

Quick intercut of real city shots in night…..streak of car


lights…..

Trish’s eyes….laughter…energy….

SONG SEQUENCE KEEPS JUMPING CUTS TO

1B. EXT. DAY. NORTH CALCUTTA BAZAR

1. Top shot. A small middle class bazaar..people going


Kanchanbaboo is only a part of the shot..one amongst many

2. A Vegetable stall….(KB POV)a wicker basket with a few sad


looking vegetables inside. Foreground has delicious
tomatoes, capsicum etc….a tomato is picked up…felt
lovingly….Vendor looks to screen…

The hand drops the tomato…basket is lifted and taken away…

3. Another vegetable stall…..(KB POV) a full wicker basket is

interested in the dialogue and keeps an eye as he does
business….

CU of Kanchanbaboo…..he blinks…We study his face….

[OPTIONAL starts
SLAP!!!! A huge slap descends on the fish vendors face…he
cringes…..we see KB raising another huge blow…

He was only thinking…..the cringing face dissolves to that


insolent laugh….heh heh heh heh
OPTIONAL ends]

KB : (shouts with hopeless rage against his powerlessness)


DHYAT !!!!!

Dissolves to black as the laughter of the Fish Vendors rise


above the dying strains of Trisha’s song…..
