What comes to your mind when you hear ‘Ahaa Re’? ‘Ahaar’ meaning food, sympathizes one adjusting to the tribulations of love. Ranjan Ghosh’s latest offering touches down both aspects. It weaves around the relationship between a young chef from Dhaka Farhaz (Arifin Shuvoo) and a home-delivery cook Basundhara (Rituparna Sengupta) in Kolkata.
We often say that food is like an emotion to bind us all. ‘Ahaa Re’ bridges the gap between two souls from different culture, class, religions and countries. The bond strengthens through a shared passion for cooking. Food and cooking become the catalyst of an emotionally drenched poignant love story.
