VASUNDHARA focuses on the deep level of corruption in our villages. The film unfolds the exploitation in one such village through the protagonist, a conscientious BDO (Block Development Officer played by Soumitro Chattopadhyay) who arrives there to take charge after the transfer notice of his predecessor who couldn’t continue beyond three months.

The entire village is in the grip of two corrupt persons, a Muslim landlord Haji Saheb with political ambition and his accomplice, Mr. Saha (Rajen Tarafdar). They terrorise people, inflict torture upon them and swindle govt. funds ..
The film was directed by Shekhar Chatterjee who acted in films like BHUVAN SHOME. The supporting cast includes Lily Chakraborty, Robi Ghosh, Shekhar Chatterjee, Satinath Mukhopadhyay and others.

The film won the Rajat Kamal National Award for Best Bengali film in 1983.
