"Ajantrik" is based on a story by Subodh Ghosh. It deals largely with man's emotional attachment that animates an inanimate. . Jagaddal, the car (ironically named) is owned by Bimal, the l driver who unbosoms and unloads his emotions to the car. He fondles it in affection, and kicks it in wrath. The car becomes an inseparable part of Bimal's life, a bond nourished with the saps of submission, akin or superior to spousal or filial tie. But, by the decree of destiny one has to be disposed of.
