Storyline

Shibnath has given his all for his country, including eleven years in prison. He also gave up part of his sanity for his country, since three of those years were spent in a mental ward. He was a hero to many for his passionate anti-colonialism, and now it is 1953 and he has just been released from prison. His friends expect him either to continue as a political firebrand, or to shrug off his experiences and get on with life. What no one expects is that he will be so broken by everything that has happened that he will sink into a well of passivity and despair. Written by Swarup Basak

Mithun Chakraborty is a True Legend...
22 February 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

When a Legendary Filmmaker & Legendary Actor come together, there is going to be a Havoc! 'Tahader Katha' is a Mithun Chakraborty show all the way!

An Incredible film with a a fantastic story of a man who's not over the pain he went through in the past. Dasgupta is amongst the greatest Filmmakers around the globe, watch his work in 'Tahader Katha', it's killer!

Mithun is the only Indian Actor who won the Iconinc National-Award for his very first film, 'Mrigayaa'. He then won his Second National-Award for his work in this film 'Tahader Katha'. His performance is flawless, it's a performance that has a 'Gold Medal' attached to it.

Two Big Thumbs Up for this Masterpiece!
