Storyline

Sata Bose, the receptionist of hotel Shahjahan and other crew members work hard to make the hotel first choice of the upper class for socializing in the city, just got the taste of freedom from British rule. The movie revolves around different characters - hotel employees to page 3 personalities dealing different human emotions. Although Sata Bose (played by Uttam Kumar) is the central character of the film, he is not the protagonist in many ways, rather the movie can be described as "hyperlink movie" made long ago than the term is coined. Written by Amit Kumar Khanra

This movie version of the celebrated Bengali novel is a classic in its own right. A stellar cast of the best contemporary actors and some powerful performances, specially by Uttam Kumar and Shubhendu Chatterjee make this movie a compelling attraction.
