It Happened in Calcutta directed by Ken Ghosh. Here, Karan Kundra as Ronobir Chatterjee and Naghma Rizwan as Kusum.
Story is revolves around a girl Kusum, who aspires to become a doctor. She gets into Calcutta Medical college, where she comes across a handsome boy Ronobir. She falls in love with Ronobir and spends most of her college time with him.
A story that managed to leave a mark during the times of war, epidemic and political unrest. Based in the era of 60s and 70s, Ronobir and Kusum’s story not only created memories, but also impacted history.
“In period dramas, nothing comes on the screen accidentally, neither the set nor the costumes. All of it is well-researched, and everything is chosen carefully and purposefully,” said the costume designer of Greta Gerwig’s movie Little Women. But, it seems the makers of ALTBalaji’s period drama It Happened In Calcutta read a different rule book. Probably, this is why they forgot halfway into the web series that they are making a period drama.
Set in the 1960s and 70s, at a time when India faced war on two fronts: Pakistan (1971) and Cholera, these aspects suggested a unique show was in the making. Alas, It Happened In Calcutta is the same old, done to death love story of college youngsters, Ronobir Chatterjee, a flamboyant and arrogant casanova, and Kusum Ganguly, of course, a nerdy gullible girl who falls for the bad boy.
