Raima Sen is a leading actress of modern Bengali cinema. She is daughter of former actress Moonmoon sen and grand daughter of legendary actress Suchitra Sen. Her father Bharat Dev Barman is from royal family of Tripura Kingdom.So, she can surely take pride of her royal and rich cultural origin.

She has a charming beauty mixed with aristocracy which is very rare in present movie industry.  Her acting often reminds us about her blue blood origin.

Her first movie was "God Mather", where she acted with legend like none other then Shabana Azmi. But, she was not much talked about her acting, may be the scope was not much, and she was just known as a daughter of yesteryear glamour queen Moonmoon sen.

Then, she was seen in a Bengali Film "Nil Nirjane". Her mother Moonmoon also acted in that film. I have seen this film, but did not like that film very much story wise. But, it had some good songs composed by Bangla Band "Cactus", and songs were pretty cool.

But, things first took a positive turn when eminent filmmake late Rituporno Ghosh selected her for the film "Chokher Bali", an adaptation of Tagore work. It was a film directed by this ace filmmaker where Raima portrayed the role of Ashalata. She really acted brilliantly in this film with actors like Prosenjit, Aishwarya Rai. She bough the simplicity, innocence, emotions of the character so well, no one could imagine a better Ashalata till now.

So, Chokher Bali is a milestone film in her career where people recognized her true potential as a brilliant actress. Gradually, she as worked in lots of Bengali films and claimed her fame for meaningful role, not for typical commercial movie heroine character role.

I personally liked her performance in the film "*Bong Connection", "The Japanese Wife", "Anuranan", "Noukadubi", "Nishijapon""Memories in March", "Baise Srabon", Children of War, "Shabdo", "Hawa Bodol", "Maach Mishti & More", " Baari Tar Bangla" to name a few.

She has acted in several Hindi films too. I liker her acting in hindi films like "Manorama Six Feet Under", "Parineeta"

All these above mentioned films are my personal favorite and she played versatile roles in them.

Her range of acting is something to be noticed about. She easily portrayed different kinds of characters on screen with ease and professionalism.

We are really looking forward to see some more excellent performances from this very talented actress.
