Storyline

The grand old mansions of Kolkata are being razed to the ground to make way for swanky condominiums, malls and multiplexes. Some of these dilapidated 'disputed' buildings were haunted by ghosts who had taken shelter there over centuries. They were evicted and are homeless today. There is no 'rehabilitation package' on offer. Politicians, media, intellectuals, civic society - no one gives a damn. After all , ghosts can't vote. Chowdhuribari is one such heritage property which is rented out for film shoots to facilitate its maintenance. A heroine faints during a shooting, allegedly sighting a ghost in a mirror. A filmmaker on a reconnaissance trip to the building gets to hear of a spooky story revolving around the house. But is it just a tall tale or is there a twist in the 'tail'? Song & dance, drama, romance, action and even an item number, BHOOTER BHOBISHYOT has all the Filmi Masala as well as some food for thought. Written by Anonymous

An amazingly well made movie!
6 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie came out as a total surprise to me..Very seldom will you see me give 9 stars to a movie..but this movie deserves it thoroughly. What strikes me most is the plot..and is closely followed by the direction and screenplay. The director has done a fantastic job in trending the story with different angles and does an amazing job in weaving all the characters together. Also the way the story is narrated through the ages flawlessly leaves me amazed. Well Done Anik Dutta...what you have created here, brings Bengali cinema to a different stage! I do hope that in future we continue to see such originality and wonderful direction from Anik Dutta.
