THANA THEKE AASCHI was directed by Hiren Nag. The film featured Uttam Kumar, Madhabi Mukherjee, Kamal Mitra, Chaya Devi, Anjana Bhowmick, Dilip Mukherjee and others.

The film employed an innovate technique of extracting confession from several characters of a family who move around in society as respectable citizens but have skeletons in their closet. In fact, the patriarch was shown contesting the elections…

The confessions tumble out when a sub-inspector Tinkori Halder (Uttam Kumar) visits the house of Kamal Mitra to interrogate suspects over a suicide committed by a lady (Madhabi Mukherjee) who was known to the family…

At its core, the film is similar to Ritwik Ghatak’s MEGHE DHAKA TARA. In both these films the female protagonist is central to the narrative and is depicted to having been exploited in their lives at a scale that is beyond the level of endurance.

The film has prompted a remake with the same name a few years back. In that film made competently Sabyasachi Chakraborty played the role of Uttam Kumar. Others in the cast in the remake included Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Paoli Dam and others.
