It is a story of a locality where there are lot of small shop owners and local residents. Shankar Mudi who is playing the central character, is one of them who runs a grocery shop. There life was going on smoothly but one day a shopping mall comes along in that area. It affects the small shop owners badly. How they will survive the battle against this wave of globalization that forms the crux of the story.
The film is a muti starer and full of talented actors lead by Kaushik Ganguly in the tittle role. There is also very talented actors like Saswata Chatterjee, Rudranil Ghosh, Kanchan Mallick, Anjan Dutt, Jisshu Sengupta,Soumitra Chatterjee, Kharaj Mukherjee, Ankita Chakraborty, Sreela Majumdar, Shantilal Mukherjee in lead roles.
This is a film that deal with socio-political issues and such subjects always have a limited reach among the audience. Moreover it has get a small scale release which will limit its scope even more.
