About the project

"Sandesh 100" is a documentary on the heritage bengali magazine 'Sandesh', which was started by Upendrakishore Raychoudhury in 1913.



After his death, his elder son Sukumar Ray became the editor in 1915. Sukumar Ray was the editor of  'Sandesh' for eight years and after his death the magazine was published by others.

In 1961, Satyajit Ray revived 'Sandesh' with his poet friend Subhash Mukherjee. After that, Leela Majumdar, Nalini Das, Bijoya Ray and now Sandip Ray is the editor of this magazine. 

The documentary is directed by Soumyakanti Dutta, under the kind guidance of Sri Sandip Ray. 

Why crowdfunding?

Till now we have had no financial support or producer for our documentary film and have only managed on personal savings. That's why we need your support!

How will the money be used?

Rs. 20000 in Shooting Cost

Rs. 80000 in Editing

Rs. 100000 in Music & Sound

Rs. 20000 in Censor


What are the risks and challenges associated with your project?

If we fail to get any financial support, we'll not be able to finish this project and if we fail to finish it, the value of the history of the heritage bengali magazine 'Sandesh' will not remain in future.

Why should you believe me and why should you fund this project?

The funding is necessary at this stage of our project, because so many people are waiting for a complete film documentation on this immortal Bengali magazine. And more than that, there should be a Documentary Film on 'Sandesh' to keep its value to the future generation.

Hi Soumyakanti and Diganta , Was scrolling on FB today , found video posted by Diganta . I follow Diganta’s work whenever I get time on FB and glad to see that you teenagers have taken such noble initiatives which other should have taken. Sandesh and Anandamela made my childhood memorable. I wish all the best to every one of you who are a part of this project. Make us proud. Regards, Sourov

I have been an ardent admirer of the great Ray family, right from Shri Upendrakishore Roy Chowdhury, to Shri Sukumar Ray, to Shri Satyajit Ray for the great contribution they've left behind for us, and the legacy being carried forward by Shri Sandip Ray. Sandesh patrika has always been in my heart from my childhood days and I cherish reading them time and again. My heartfelt appreciation and good wishes to the front line campaigners, Soumyakanti, Souradip & other young energetic people for their initiative and hard work for such noble cause. Thanks. Moumita.
