Adlabs Kolkata update

Adlabs' Kolkata business (Post-production and film processing) has an experienced local partner, RDB Organisation, that is into films for decades. RDB used to be run by late RD Banshal who has produced a couple of memorable films by Satyajit Ray.

The joint venture will also anchor the first of Adlabs multiplexes in Salt Lake in February.

Their post-production set-up in Tollygunge, Kolkata's film zone, boasts of the first Dolby Digital recording and mixing studio in the city, specially designed by Roger Darcy of Recording Architecture Ltd., UK. It is currently catering to Teentoretor Jishu, Sandip Ray's second film in the legendary Feluda series started by his illustrous father Satyajit Ray and Pinaki Chowdhury's latest production.

The film lab at Salt Lake is busy with Bappaditya Bandopadhyay's Kaal, a Hindi movie Falai by D&G Movies and the Pinaki Chowdhyry film among others. To quote Bappaditya, "Adlabs will help Tolly technicians immensely. Cinematographers always need a lab close at hand as it helps them experiment with the prints. Kaal is the first film being processed at Adlabs and the negatives have turned out really well."
