The story tells a heart-warming tale of a retired 65-year-old widower Gaur Chakraborty (Mithun Chakraborty), who lives alone with his son Joy (Dev), a wedding planner. Gaur wishes Joy to be married. But his desire turns to a tipping point as life had other plans. The film has a mass appeal and portrays the endearing relationship between a father and his son. “The entire star cast has given powerful and captivating performance in this family drama. One of the reasons Projapati is very special to us is it brings back the veterans of Indian cinema, Mithun Chakraborty and Mamata Shankar almost after 46 years of Mrigaya.
Their chemistry is still electrifying. And Dev, without any doubt, is one of the biggest superstars of Tollywood. He keeps on surprising us with his performance every time. The music has also caught on very well. We feel every audience will be able to identify the characters with themselves in the film”, said Atanu Raychaudhuri & Pranab Kumar Guha on behalf of Bengal Talkies. “It is no wonder that people throughout history are fascinated with intricacies of familial love. Along with the unconditional love and support, families, like any other relationships, can be complicated at times and can carry a lot of baggage. Projapati captures the emotional bond between a father & son and their relationship with the people they are close with. It has been an emotionally fulfilling moment for me as I got to direct the Megastar across generations, Mithun Chakraborty. It was lovely working with Dev once again along with the other co-actors”, said Avijit Sen, Director of Projapati. Rathijit Bhattacharya, Surojit Chatterjee and Anupam Roy have composed the soulful tunes of Projapati. The lyrics of the songs are penned by Surojit Chatterjee, Anupam Roy & Prasen.
