    Unfortunately “Agantuk” lives on as the final film of the dynamic Satyajit Ray, rather than being remembered as another enigmatic product from the master film maker’s stable. The film released a couple of months after Ray’s demise (1992) & a year before the outstanding Utpal Dutta’s departure. “Agantuk” was inspired from a short story enclosed by Ray himself. The film deals with the flummerous idiosyncrasies of the compartmentalized elite class & how they continue to exist in a vacuum of baseless & principle less selfish lifestyle. The film also deals with the consequences when a maverick old bohemian falls amongst these “self confessed” Samaritans. Utpal Dutta thwarts the conventional hypocrisies of the sectarian India society with his incomparable performance. Dipankar Dey as the confused husband, Mamata Shankar as the helpless niece, Robi Ghosh in a cameo & Dhritiman Chatterjee as an autocratic & aggressive custodian put in effervescent performances. The music & screenplay by Ray & camera work by the ever dependable Barun Raha fear the limits of physical constraints & limitations. The philosophy emphasized through “Agantuk” lives as an endangered cinematic attempt in comparision to global cinema. The sequence of the verbal feud between Dhritiman & Utpal is intoxicating & inspiring, & the frames captured during the filming of this shot remain next to perfect. Worth a watch!
