     13The radical filmmaker Niranjan Chakraborty 
     14(Chatterjee) witnesses his friend, police officer 
     15Ratanlal, commit a murder. The assassinated 
     16man is a noted intellectual and Niranjan’s 
     17erstwhile Communist mentor. In a drunken 
     18moment Niranjan discloses what he saw to a 
     19young journalist, causing a major political 
     20scandal. In the end, he denies having seen 
     21anything incriminating and rescues the corrupt 
     22officer from a prison sentence. The plot is 
     23padded by the journalist turning out to be the 
     24filmmaker’s illegitimate daughter by an earlier 
     25wife (Shankar) who rejected him because of his 
     26unprincipled opportunism. The epilogue has 
     27the filmmaker win awards, his radical 
     28reputation intact. Much of the film depends on 
     29local references to actual people and events, 
     30e.g. the murder in the film evokes the 
     31assassination, during Siddhartha Shankar Ray’s 
     32ministry, of noted Naxalite poet and intellectual 
     33Saroj Dutta by the police which it is commonly 
     34believed was actually witnessed by the star 
     35Uttam Kumar. The radical filmmaker 
     36character is seen as a caricature of Mrinal Sen 
     37and Utpal Dutt.
