Cast: Ritwik Ghatak, Utpal Dutt
Director: Ritwik Ghatak
    see all cast/crew...
Rating: Not Rated
Studio: Biswas
Running Time: 120 min.

JUKTI TAKKO AAR GAPPO was the legendary Ritwik Ghatak's last film, starring the writer/director himself as a learned man whose wife leaves him because of his insufferable alcoholism. Forced from his home, he wanders through the countryside and meets unusual folks along the way. The film, adventurous and revolutionary, is a exceptional mix of images that challenge the limits of narrative storytelling.

Artist's muse, success, temptations and friendship by amit August 26, 2004 - 3:20 PM PDT

Said to have auto biographical elements, the movie is a writer taking to drinking, his encounters with different people.
It would help to note that Bangladesh is a small country, very close to West Bengal, a state in the east of India, both having cultural similarities. Another background fact, Bengal has strong labor background and has a socialist party ruling the state for decades now.

Face it. You'll probably never get to see these on the big screen. So, just rent them 'cause you don't really have a choice. Damn.
