The magic of the stage is now brought to on dvd. 1960's Kolkata. A thundering monsoon night. Ranjana, has managed to get clearance from the home office and the prison's superintendent. She is visiting Kaushik, a convict waiting to be hanged at dawn, the man she thinks might be her long-lost brother. She travelled 400 miles to listen to Kaushik's story: A sinuous tale shifting between reality and fiction, made of half-truths. Stepping out of the shadow to take centre place in a cleverly orchestrated chessboard of lies, emotions and death. Pundit the priest reads the Holy Scriptures and try to ease his final stay in our world. Biraj, the officer in charge, has doubts about Kaushik's story. Biraj is also a keen player of the national pastime: chess and he doesn't seem to be the only one that night. They will all revert to type, crossing each other's paths on that very chessboard in one short but intense night. Based on Bidhayak Bhattacharjee's Radio Play Adaptation and Direction by Korak Ghosh Produced by Priyam Dasgupta Presented by Mahua Productions www.mahua.co.uk
