Satabdi Roy

Satabdi Roy (born 5 October 1969) is an Indian actress and film director who is known for her work in Bengali cinema. She is the recipient of BFJA Awards for two times. As an actress, she ruled the array of commercial Bengali cinema during the late 1980s and 1990s. As a director, she has been denounced critically for her use of superfluous themes. She is a Trinamool Congress Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha since 2009.

Roy made her film debut opposite Prosenjit Chatterjee in Tapan Sinha’s much acclaimed Bengali film Atanka (1986), which won her the BFJA Awards for the Best Supporting Actress in 1987. She shot to stardom after she had been paired with Tapas Paul in films such as Amar Bandhan (1986), Guru Dakshina (1987), Antaranga (1988), Apan Amar Apan (1990) and Abishkar (1990) to name a few. Her major hits with Prosenjit Chatterjee include Alingan (1990), Shraddhanjali (1993), Lathi (1996), Sakhi Tumi Kar (1996), Chandragrahan (1997), Ranokhetro (1998), Sajani Aamar Sohag (2000) and Trishul (2000) to name few. She made her Bollywood debut in National Award winning director Jyoti Sarup’s Naya Zaher (1991). She collaborated with Tapan Sinha for the second time in his Antardhan (1992). She was conferred with the BFJA Awards for the Best Supporting Actress for the second time in 2005, for her performance in Raja Sen’s Debipaksha. During her heyday, she was often compared to her contemporaries, such as Debashree Roy and Rituparna Sengupta.[2] She made her directorial debut with Abhinetri (2005), which was an unequivocal reflection of the life and career of Bengali matinee idol Suchitra Sen. The film turned out to be a commercial as well as critical failure.

Early life

She was born in Agarpara to Shailen and Nilima Roy. Satabdi Roy passed her Madhyamik from Sorojini High School in 1986 and later attended Jogamaya Devi College, a women’s college affiliated to the University of Calcutta.

Film career

Debut and Breakthrough (1986 – 1989)

Roy made her film debut opposite Prosenjit Chatterjee in Tapan Sinha’s much acclaimed Bengali film Atanka (1986), which earned her the Bengal Film Journalists’ Association – Best Supporting Actress Award in 1987. Earlier, she had worked in a film called Tina, directed by Dinen Gupta, but it was never released. In 1987, she had five releases including Hiren Nag’s Pratibha, Prabhat Roy’s Pratikar, Anjan Mukhopadhyay’s Nyay Adhikar, Biresh Chatterjee’s Ekanta Apan and Anjan Choudhry’s Guru Dakshina, which became a massive grosser at box office. She was paired with Tapas Paul in this film. She reprised her chemistry with Paul in Dinen Gupta’s Antaranga (1988) and Tarun Majumdar’s Parashmani (1988). Both the films became massive grossers at box office.

Prime success (1990 – 2000)

The year 1990 saw Roy emerging out as a bankable film star with her two back-to-back commercial successes Apan Amar Apan by Tarun Majumdar and Abishkar by Salil Dutta. In both films, she played the role of an aspiring singer, but was noted more for her role in Abishkar, where she essayed a singer who set out in a quest of her kidnapped sister-in-law. She was also noted for her role in Tapan Saha’s Alingan (1990). She went on to convey hits such as Nandan Dasgupta’s Prem Pujari (1991), Deb Singha’s Adhikar (1992), Guru Bagchi’s Pennam Kolkata (1992), Prashanta Nanda’s Ghar Sansar (1993), Lal Pan Bibi (1994), Srikanta Guhathakurta’s Shraddhanjali (1993), Chiranjeet Chakraborty’s Sansar Sangram (1995), Swapan Saha’s Sakhi Tumi Kar (1996) and Anjan Banerjee’s Chandragrahan (1997) to name a few.
