This film was made in the late 1979 by director Jayanta Bhattacharya. As the title suggested, the film was a biopic of the British maverick navigator who is adjudged to be the founder of the city of Kolkata. The film could have been a great piece of fiction & facts (combined) but due to sloppy editing, unimaginative camera work & unresearched direction, it became nothing better than an amateur’s venture. The film would have been a qualitative failure unless Soumitra Chattopadhyay put in a quality performance for the title role. Satya Banerjee, Arati Bhattacharya & Rajeshwari had little options to explore within the stagnated Screenplay. The film was produced by Anirban Chitra & music was composed by Sudhin Dasgupta.
