The Nobel Medal of great Indian Poet Rabindra Nath Tagore was stolen in 2004 and it was never found. This film is a fictional account of what might have happened to the medal. A poor farmer accidentally finds the medal lying outside his house. He embarks on a journey to return back the medal to the government but is later dragged in to selling it with the help of his friend in Kolkatta city. What he learns about great Tagore and how do people of today take his philosophy is what this film is all about. In his journey he encounters different people with different takes on Tagore. What happens to him in the end is also highly unexpected. Written by
Watched it and felt the need to cry. The way MithunDa portrayed an illiterate poor farmer from a village who is struggling hard for his son's future and to repair the roof of his hut and having the dream of buying a bicycle for him. Not only his acting but his eyes speaks more than his dialogs and body language. You can't stare his eyes without crying. The expectation of a nice future, the expectation to have things on right path. I think there are handful of actors in India who can act through their eyes too and MithunDa tops the list. From the beginning to the end, how a poor farmer is messed up in a theft which shakes the whole country. I cried a lot for him and his family even if it was fiction because the portrayal of each and every character was real. LOVED IT. A Must watch for every movie lovers and especially acting lovers.
