Ranjana Ami Ar Ashbona (Bengali: রঞ্জনা আমি আর আসবনা, English: Ranjana, I will not come back again) is a 2011 Bengali language Indian rock musical drama film directed by Anjan Dutt. It won three national film awards in 2011 including best music direction and best feature film in Bengali.[1]


Anjan Dutt, Amyt Datta, Lew Hilt, Nondon Bagchi, all in their mid-50s are members of a successful Bangla-band. They go for a show in North Bengal where Ranjana performs a small opening salutation. Anjan Dutt asks Ranjana (Parno Mittra) to come and meet him in Kolkata and promises to help her in recording her solo. Once in Kolkata, Ranjana stays at Anjan's house with him and his housekeeper, Kanchan Mullick. One night Anjan tries to seduce Ranjana but, due to too much drinking, he faints allowing Ranjana to run. But she stays and nourishes him. This changes Anjan's attitude towards her and he teaches her music.

After much insisting, an audio company agrees to record Ranjana's song but no one is interested. Anjan seeks the help of his journalist friend and books a prime-time show on a top news channel to promote her.

This results in making her a super-hit rockstar....

Anjan is hospitalized and Ranjana comes to meet and tell him about her first rock concert. Ranjana tries to persuaded him to come to the show. He quotes "Ranjana Ami Ar Ashbona." Anjan dies in the hospital while Ranjana performs in the concert.
