Daily Prompts: Teen Age Idol

Who did you idolize as a teenager? Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-Ga over Duran Duran? In love with Justin Bieber?Did you think Elvis was the livin’ end?

None of the above is all I can say. I saw some Bengali movies of Suchitra- Uttam. I felt they were the best and only ones worth watching on the silver screen. I was fifteen, living in Comilla,Bangladesh.

My mom did not like the idea of me watching movies, once in a while my aunt would take me to watch them. This was the time the Suchitra- Uttam duo were extremely popular in Bangladesh.. They were good actors and  were handsome. I did not have any knowledge of good and bad acting, but I loved to watch this pair, whenever their movies were released.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post. I do not know the actors you mention here. I do, however, believe in the power of film. To me, modern-day films can influence people toward positive change, or even the other direction.

    All good wishes,

    robert
