Gaaner Oparey (English:On the other side of the song) [1][2][3][4] was an Indian Bengali television serial which aired on Star Jalsha from 28 June 2010 to 16 April 2011.[5] This TV musical marked the beginning of a yearlong celebration of the 150th birth anniversary of the great Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore. This new concept was a brainchild of the famous Indian director Rituparno Ghosh[6] The songs were all popular Rabindra sangeets. Prosenjit Chatterjee brought back the magic of this show by launching an audio CD of its tracks on Mahalaya on October 12.[7]


The story revolves around a girl called Sohini (more commonly known as Pupe) from an orthodox Tagore worshipping family and Gora, an extremely talented but carefree lad, who keeps on experimenting with Rabindra sangeet. The story traces their relationship and human emotions through an imaginative portrayal of Tagore, his true ideals and their significance today. It also portrays the patriarchal society still prevalent in modern India.The serial used more than fifty Tagore songs and brought out their relevance in the lives of the protagonists. The cast was composed of stalwarts such as Sabyasachi Chakrabarty and Dipankar De plus newcomers Gaurav and Arjun Chakrabarty (sons of Sabyasachi Chakrabarty ). The female lead was played by Mimi Chakrabarty in only her second project as an actress. The show has portrayed three different forms of Rabindrasangeet: the more traditional kind through the voice of Pupe, a fused version with Hindustani classical music, through the voice of Pradipto, and an 'unplugged' rendition, sometimes incorporating rap words and band music, through Gora. Several singers such as Anindya Narayan Biswas, Samantak Sinha, Sharmistha Paul,[8] Soumyajit Das, Amrita Datta, Debashish Banerjee, Runu Dutta were roped for playback singers
