Tribute to the queen of Bengali films

We have already lost many of our talented artists, scholars and some of the most talented people who were attacked by the covid-19 virus.  We have lost many more talented people including Prof. Anisuzzaman and Prof. Shamsuzzaman Khan who were the real resources of this country. We lost Kabari on 17 April who is known as the ‘sweet girl’ of Bengali cinema and this legendary actress was popular with everyone. On 18th April, we lost Wasim who was one of the superstars of Bengali cinema and at the same time another actor MM Mohsin who was the winner of Ekushey Padak. Sarah Begum Kabari was a personality who not only confined herself to the world of acting but also excelled in politics, culture and various social activities.
This famous actress was born in 1950 in Chittagong and for almost four decades she has continued her dynamic acting in the Bengali film world uninterruptedly. Kabari made her acting debut in Subhash Dutt's 'Sutarang' film and has since embarked on a journey that has been going on for over 40 consecutive years. The movies Saat Bhai Champa and Sujan Sakhi made her one of the most popular. She won the National Film Award for her performance in Sareng Bou and at the same time made her debut as a film director in the film Aina. Her contribution to the war of liberation was unique in 1971. During this time she participated in various cultural events to create public opinion in Calcutta. Her long career has not been smooth at all. She has been able to establish herself in the hearts of the people through many setbacks and adversities. In addition to acting, she was active in politics and in 2008 she was elected a member of the National Assembly of Bangladesh. Sarah Begum Kabari took the Bengali film industry to a unique height that will be remembered on the soil of Bengal.
Kabari has won the hearts of the people through her powerful performances, just as she has served the people relentlessly as a political activist. In real life, this actress was very simple and very sociable. She used to smile with everyone, shared her pain and sorrow with everyone and helped everyone.
The famous actress won the hearts of the people with her acting skills and at the same time she made a place in the minds of the people by serving politically. However, in her last life, she felt very lonely. In addition to acting, Kabari has been involved in various social activities throughout her life and has served the people uninterruptedly. This actress has to leave the world with a lot of work and many unfulfilled dreams. In her seven decades of life, Kabari has achieved a lot and dreamed of doing many things that she could not do, but her greatest achievement is the love of people. Kabari was unique and exceptional in her acting skills and at the same time she has a great track record in directing movies. Kabari's real name was Mina Pal and his father's name was Sri Krishna Das Pal and his mother's name was Lavanyaprabha Pal.
In 1963, at the age of just 13, Kabari took to the stage as a dancer, where she excelled and then made boundless contributions to television and the movies. Kabari married Chitra Chowdhury but their relationship did not last and after their divorce she married Safiuddin Sarwar in 1978 but her relationship with Safiuddin Sarwar did not last. When the war of liberation started in 1971, Kabari moved to her village home with great difficulty and from there she migrated to Calcutta and by going to Calcutta she played a major role in creating public opinion in favour of the liberation war of Bangladesh.
After the country became independent, she returned to Bangladesh and became active in the film world again, gifting hundreds of films. Her notable movies are Nil Akasher Niche, Mainamati, Sareng' Bou, Devdas, Hiraman, Chorabali, Paruler Sangsar, Sujanshokhi, Sat Bhai Champa, Upohar, Rangbaj, Darpochurna etc. Kabari has received numerous awards, including the National Film Award, Lifetime A chievement Award, for her acting skills. Kabari was an actress who always thought of something good for the Bangladeshi film industry, thought of something exceptional and always thought of doing something different. The heroine Kabari loved her junior artists very much and she helped and supported them in various ways that is why she became the icon to the young artists.
We have already lost many of the leading actors of Bengali films and we recently lost to Kabari who really took the helm of Bengali films in a very strong way. Kabari's death created a sharp void in the Bengali film industry and this loss is irreparable. The Bengali film arena is forever indebted to the heroine Kabari. Kabari has been loved by many people but she regrets that she did not find a real friend as her life partner in her last life. The people of Bengal will never see this famous actress on the screen but her memory will be etched in their hearts and they will remember this beloved actress forever. Kobari became famous and popular for her acting skills and for her use of a normal demeanor attitude and friendship.
For a long time, the Bengali film industry has been plagued by various problems, and Kabari wanted to solve this problem but she did not get time to do that. Kobari was a very independent woman and a true devotee of the film industry. In the struggle for life, she saw success in all fields, but in the end she was defeated by an invisible virus. The whole nation is mourning due to the death of actress Kabari but her unusual death has given us a message that we must be aware of the corona virus. We pay our deepest respects to all those we have already lost, including actress Kabari. Actress Kabari will never come back to us but her life and works of art should be a great inspiration for future generations. For young artists, Kabari has left her ideals, and if young artists really move forward with her ideals, they too will see the face of success, just like Kabari.
