Storyline

After years of painstaking research at the cost of his domestic pleasure, Dr. Dipankar Roy discovers a vaccine for leprosy. The news is flashed over television and overnight, an insignificant junior doctor receives international recognition. Professional jealousy and abuse of power threaten Dr. Roy, even as the Secretary of Health reprimands him for breaking the news to the press. He is asked to report to the Director of Health. Professional colleagues Dr. Arijit Sen and Dr. Ramananda invite him to a lecture but it is merely a pretence to humiliate him. Dr. Roy suffers a mild heart attack but he refuses to go to the hospital. His wife and few others like Dr. Kundu stand by Dr. Roy, but the harassment continues; a letter from an American foundation is suppressed and Dr. Roy transferred to a remote village. The last straw is two American doctors receiving credit for discovering the same vaccine. Dr. Roy is shattered. Written by Rajesh Das

one of the best
27 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

I think the other reviewers have said what I wanted to say already.

I just have to say this films is a top 10 best movies made in India. Too bad these films are largely ignored by Indian masses and most NRI's, who like to watch the no brain entertainers like KKKH, KKKG, DDLJ, Ready, Bodyguard etc..

This is a truly a film India can be proud of and show at international film festivals to western audiences and critics alike.

I wish Indians started to support films like these more and films made by Govind Nihlani, Shyam Benegal etc.. and this this would encourage more production of such movies.
