It is not too often that a film hit you hard when you least expect it becaue the director isn’t considered in the league of the most vaunted names in Bengali cinema. So, it was a pleasant pleasure to be bowled over on a recent viewing of the film KHOKABABUR PROTYABORTON , one of the most humanist and cruelest stories from the pen of Rabindranath Tagore.

The tale of a loyal servant Raicharran (Uttam Kumar) whose slight negligence led to the death of the son of his employer (Asit Baran) and how after the birth of his own son raises him as if he is a reincarnation of the deceased boy , and finally returning him to his employer claiming he had stolen him from them earlier constitute the storyline.
Uttam Kumar proves his versatality and acts brilliantly. Dipti Roy, Tulsi Chakraborty & Sova Sen comprise the supporting cast. The film is directed by Agradoot.
