The official trailer of Rajlokhi O Srikanto starring Ritwick Chakraborty, Jyotika Jyoti has released today. Bangladesh actress Jyotika Jyoti will be debuting with this movie in Bengali film industry. ‘Rajlokhi O Srikanta’ is slated for a release on September 20.
The film, directed by Pradipta Bhattacharyya, is based on episode one of Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel of the same name.
In the film, Srikanta role is played by Ritwick who is an unmarried man in his mid-thirties. He has come to Kolkata from his village Nishindipur and works in a private nursing home in the city. He does not like what he does for a living, he wants to quit. He has a history of quitting jobs; he claims to have not liked doing any of them. What he wants is to be able to live independently, to be able to discard the trite and mediocre rules that dictate ordinary life.
At such a juncture, an old college friend of his named Hukumchand, an influential business tycoon, invites him on a picnic to a hilly province quite far from Calcutta, with a plan for them to have some fun and revelry there over a couple of days. Srikanta, having gone on such trips with Hukum previously, eagerly accepts the offer this time as well.
Side by side another story here is that of a married woman named Annada who Indranath falls in love with. They are forced to leave the village after a terrible accident and it is not until much later in the film that we find out where Indranath and Annada disappear too.
