MUMBAI: Broadcast Worldwide's Bangla television network Tara is making a mark through its telefilms.

The films produced by Tara have collected three prominent awards in the circuit - one each from the regional, national and international segments.

Tara bagged the best telefilm of the year for Roop Kathar Jibon in the Indo Bangladesh Kala Music Award (KMP) held in the USA. The telefilm directed by Sourav SArengi is based on Nabanita Deb Sen's short story about two lovers who go their separate ways and meet again years later in their middle age.

 
Dui Purush, directed by John, won the best Bangla telefilm award at the recently concluded Radio & TV Practitioners' Association of India (RAPA) awards. The telefilm, also screened at the 2nd Bangla Telefilm Festival 2004, Nandan, Kolkata, is the story of the unique relationship that builds up between two actors, one a present day superstar, the other, a forgotten hero but a veteran actor.
 
 

This month, Sunfest Telly Samman Award honoured the Tara telefilm Sumitra Online, directed by Atanu Ghosh, as Best Bangla Telefilm of the Year. At this Award ceremony, the best telefilm actor award was bagged by actor Kharaj Mukherjee for his performance in Dui Purush. Sumitra Online tells the story of a happy, well to do family where the mother starts chatting online and develops an online friendship with a younger man by assuming a younger identity. Her life changes, as she seems to broaden her horizons.

Telefilm properties are considered as one of the channel drivers for Bangla channels. Tara Bangla had been telecasting telefilms on Sundays in the afternoon slot. Tara Bangla became Tara Newz and Tara Muzik on 21 February, 2005. The Telefilms were maintained in the same time slot, now on Tara Muzik.
