Zulfiqar: A Bengali crime drama film directed by Srijit Mukherji, Zulfiqar is the story of Zulfiqar Ahmed, the most prominent member of the Syndicate, a powerful organisation with control over all matters of the city. Based on Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra, Zulfiqar portrays how the members of the Syndicate, even Zulfiqar's best friend, Basheer Khan (Brutus) turn against him, based on a ruse started by Kashinath Kundu (Cassius). A magnificent modern day take on Julius Caesar, the movie even has the epic monologue of 'But Brutus is an honourable man!' given by Zulfiqar's staunchest supporter Tony Braganza (Antony), in its own setting. The film continues to show what happens of the rest of the members of the Syndicate and of the Syndicate itself, after Zulfiqar is killed by his own men. An example of fine film craftsmanship Bengali cinema has reached new heights with this film. Incredible performances by every single actor along with an amazing background score and music by Anupam Roy, makes this film unique in itself. If you want to revisit the era of Shakespeare, this is where you can start. #bengalicinema #tollywood #zulfiqar #moviesareeasierlives. How did you find this film? Let me know!
