Subhrajit Mitra revives Satyajit Ray’s enduring and endearing character Apu after 60 years with a film that takes off from where The Apu Trilogy ended in 1959.
Focusing on Apu's overwhelming desire to explore the world outside, the film explores the sublime bond between Apu and his 6-year-old son Kajol. Though Kajol’s mother, Aparna dies during childbirth in Apur Sansar, she still exists in Apu’s surreal space where he indulges in eternal philosophical discourses with his beloved.
