He kills her so as to erase proof of his deed. Sujit, Ajit’s younger brother is framed in the murder. Ajit turns to the police for help but little does he know that Mantu’s presence had perpetuated the police force also. However, one by one Mantu’s gang members gets killed. What will happen next? Who is behind this? Will Ajit see justice?
Speaking about the film, director duo Provash-Arijit said “We have tried to show reality in the film. One of the striking aspects of the film is the characters who are positive at the beginning of the film become negative by the time the film ends. This will surely appeal to the audience”.
Dev Sen who has composed the music of the film and also done the background score too said “This is my first work with the director duo and I enjoyed the experience of working with them. There are five songs in the album. Despite being a commercial film, we have kept songs which will appeal to all sections of the audience. We have an item song but that has a folk touch to it. The item song has been sung by Kalpana Patowary. Vicky A Khan, Prasenjit Mallick, has sung the other songs in this album”.
Amit, Priyanka, Soma Mittal, Ashmita, Chanda Chatterjee, Dijen Banerjee, Sharmila Das, Supriya Dutta, Partha Sarathi, Biswajit Chakraborty, Bharat Koul, Raju, Rohit, Kalyan Chatterjee, Rajat Ganguly will be seen in pivotal roles in the film.
