Kamal Mitra (1911-93)

Bengali actor born in Burdwan. Started in amateur theatre. Film début with Gunamoy Bannerjee and in Debaki Bose’s Hindi films. First major hit: Sat Number Bari, coinciding with his successes on the professional Calcutta stage (Seetaram, Tipu Sultan, etc). Acted with Minerva, Star and Srirangam theatres and in jatra groups. His tall stature and deep voice made him a natural for aristocratic patriarchal roles, e.g. already in his early career he continued the stereotype of the pipe-smoking father established by Chhabi Biswas. Later played several roles as screen villain but acted heroic roles in mythologicals (e.g. Kangsa, Mahishasur Badh). Retired in 1981. Autobiography: Flashback (1989).
