I read a criticism of an eminent film critic about Buddhadeb Dasgupta becoming 'very personal' in his later films which lack the social commitment and depth he showed in his early films (Dooratwa, Grihajuddha, Bagh Bahadur and others). SWAPNER DIN would fall in the second phase of his films and no different from the personal kind of films (LAL DARJA & others) he has been making in recent times ...
I was trying to dissect SWAPNER DIN and its inner message.

The supporting cast includes Reema Sen, Haradhan Bannerjee and others ...
