Arijit Biswas making his directorial debut with ‘Surjo Prithibir Charidike Ghore’ surprised all winning the Hiralal Sen Memorial award for Best Director at the recently held Kolkata International Film Festival. His film, revolving around a self-proclaimed scientist Tapan Chandra Pal living in the Kolkata footpath, has received critical acclaims after the KIFF screening.
As per the story, Tapan Chandra Pal firmly believes we have been duped into believing that Earth moves around the sun, but it’s completely different in reality. Not only TC Pal is obsessive with this idea, he takes up the initiative of propagating this crazy belief to everyone, naturally facing so many hurdles, and wrath in his way. The most interesting part Arijit Biswas narrates a real-life story as there’s actually a man (named KC Pal) in Kolkata turning the story more tragic.
