the Tollywood movies depicts the eponymous character
is a young man searching for his identity. He was born
to a mentally challenged woman who had taken refuge
at Ranir Ghat on a stormy night. The truth about the
impregnation of the unstable woman unfolds in flashbacks
and reveals the dormant and repressed sexual urges of
the otherwise decent village folk who had been living
like an extended family. The protagonist had lost his
mother in his infancy and has known all the village
elders as his wellwishers. They had collectively nurtured
him as their own. But he is desperate to know about
his real father....
Anjan Das's screenplay could have been spruced up a bit to
make it accessible to a wider section of viewers. The worst
moments in the film are, unfortunately, the two death scenes
(plot-details not being provided to avoid spoiling viewing
pleasure) which could have been filmed in a manner befitting
the harsh sense of betrayal and could have involved the audience
to a greater extent than merely generating a maudlin response.
