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 incredible Bengali Art Film - a Masterpiece
28 April 2012 | by arnab-zimzySee all my reviews

I recently watched this movie in a cinema hall and i felt it could be a spooky horror film but it was different and outstanding. This movie has all the elements that makes this two hour journey an absolute treat to watch. The plot is quite simple and it reaches to all section of masses.

The atmosphere,cinematography,lighting,acting,costumes,music are just brilliant but the most important aspect i feel are the dialogues that are quite intriguing and showcases the 'intelligent wit' of the film!!!

Nevertheless to say, the dialogues actually bring the flavor of comedy and you are bound to laugh at your seat. Good luck to Bengali Art films and kudos to the director Anik Dutta for presenting us such a film in his debut.
