In my opinion this is probably the best film by Buddhadeb Dasgupta. It won Best Film National Award & gave superstar Mithun Chakraborty his 2nd National Award for Best Actor. A must watch if you like meaningful and thought provoking cinema that talks about life with reality written all over.
This is one of Mithun's best work & in an interview he had mentioned he did this movie to make his kids feel proud. It was produced by NFDC and on a very tight budget. Mithun was given a remuneration of 50,000/- & it's understandable he did not do this movie for the dough but the generous man distributed his share amongst the technicians who worked in the film.
Classic. 2 thumbs up. DVD quality is top notch. Wish they release this on Blu Ray soon!!
