A feel good comic caper. That’s what “Ekti Raat” is all about. Chitta Basu directed & scripted this film which was created in the early 1960’s. The film got public adulation for its simplicity & mundane narration. Plus the sets & art work were well conceived & attractive. The dialogues were catchy & arresting while the narration was rib tickling & hilarious. The story line revolved around 2 estranged couples who had been separated accidentally & the mishaps & the fallacies that happen there after. Produced by H.N.C. Productions “Ekti Raat” became a hit for the Uttam-Suchitra pair. The film was neither progressive nor had pathos but still it remained enjoyable for its comic timing. The hit numbers were composed by Anupam Ghatak. The story was written by Banaphool. The songs were penned by Gouriprasanna Majumdar & sung by Sandhya Mukherjee. The cast included Pahari Sanyal, Bhanu Banerjee, Jiben Basu, Suchitra Sen, Gurudas Banerjee, Molina Debi, Kamal Mitra, Uttam Kumar & Sabita Basu.
