     14Experimental, and controversial, debut feature 
     15set in the context of the 1960s Naxalite student 
     16movement in Calcutta. Resorting to a mix of 
     17colour and monochrome scenes to convey the 
     18persistence of the past in the present, the story 
     19tells of a professor of economics, Bhishmadev 
     20Sharma (Chattrejee), peripherally connected 
     21with and clearly sympathetic to the student 
     22movement, who is arrested, tortured and 
     23imprisoned for ten years. He emerges into a 
     24changed Calcutta, exemplified by the 
     25existential traumas of his now rich former 
     26student Samar Gupta, the writer Pragnya and 
     27the young activist Udayan, the latter 
     28unperturbably continuing to claim that the 
     29present is a revolutionary situation. The film’s 
     30political passion derives from its refusal to 
     31forget a traumatic past, juxtaposing the 
     32interaction of temporal dimensions with a 
     33sophisticated mise en scene of spatial 
     34discontinuities.
