Plot: In this film Ghatak plays role of Nilkantha Bagchi, an alcoholic, disillusioned broken intellectual, in the character’s own words “a humbug”. His wife leaves him because of his insufferable alcoholism. After losing his wife and being forced from his home, he wanders through the countryside and meets unusual folks along the way. Nilkantha meets Bongobala, who was driven away from Bangladesh and does not have any shelter in Kolkata; he gives her shelter. He meets Jagannath Bhattacharjee, a village school teacher of Sanskrit. Jagannath’s school was closed after political killings and he came to Kolkata in search of a job. Nilkantha meets Naxalites whom he describes as the “frame of Bengal”, but misguided, successful and unsuccessful at the same time. The film, adventurous and revolutionary, is an exceptional mix of images that challenge the limits of narrative storytelling.
