hoichoi and Windows Production collaborate for a new series, Tarader Shesh Tarpon
hoichoi is thrilled to announce a new series, Tarader Shesh Tarpon, a special tribute dedicated to the departed legends of our time. It is a docu-series, the first of its kind on the departed Indian celebrities as hoichoi is known to experiment and bring forth never-told or never-seen before content pieces with a unique yet strong narrative.
Produced by Nandita Roy and Shiboprasad Mukherjee’s Windows Production and dated to stream this Mahalaya, Tarader Shesh Tarpon marks one-of-a-kind collaboration between hoichoi and Windows.
Tarader Shesh Tarpon is a unique offering of remembrance to 12 special stars whose contributions, even post death remains relevant and rekindles the essence of Bengalis across the world. The eminent list includes Sushant Singh Rajput, Chuni Goswami, P.K. Banerjee, Rituparno Ghosh, Tapas Pal, Sunil Ganguly, Ajoy Basu, Gopal Bose, Supriya Devi, Krishanu Dey, Mahua Lahiri and Kalika Prasad Bhattacharya across various fields whose contributions have had far reaching effects and continue to inspire, motivate, polarize opinions and at times trigger a debate, even after their death. It is certainly no coincidence that the first 6 episodes will be aired on Mahalaya, arguably considered to be the most auspicious day of the Bengali calendar to pay homage and say prayers to the departed close ones. The connotation of ‘Tarpan’ is indicative of that very Bengali tradition of offering prayers to our forefathers. Tarader Shesh Tarpon is also an attempt to record a final assessment of their life and times, to revisit the glory days as well as the semi- darkness in the form of controversies which may have engulfed them. It is a final work of respect, curated with utmost sensitivity after thorough research and well-rounded interviews, to etch these personalities in the hearts of the people forever.
