The name of the original short story is "Khokababur Pratyaborton" - "The Return of Khokababu" .. It's a story of a servant  and took care of his kid. "Khokababu" he would call the kid and serve him with sheer dedication. Sadly, the boy died accidentally when he was with the protagonist [don't remember the name] .. his master's wife accused him of stealing the kid. His master didn't believe in such allegations but had to fire him. After a few years, he returns to his master's house to return the lost/dead child. 

I tried to give the summary skipping the twist so that I don't spoil the surprise. It's a heartwrenching tale that will spellbound you with its exceptional development.

Thanks for link Sayanee..i have read the story in school and i remember a movie too but i was confused with ending...I thought Mini doesnt recognise him... and thats sad part of ending...where he thinks that his daughter too wont recognise him..but here Mini's dad just gave him money when he comes back ..n that was the end..Confused

Here Rahmat cried thinking Sana will be as old as Mini, here too Mini didn't remember him initially .. I think Anurag Basu's version wasn't that clear with the recognization part but focused on the fact that at that moment the realization strikes Rahmat that he has missed his daughter's childhood forever .. the money giving part was in the story.

I made some on Bengali songs and got translated in English from someone . But I understand little bit of Bengali .Loved these songs as someone asked me and gave me links . Do not know if it fits or not but was keen to use these ones




 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYOvB54x_Z4      This one is fromSonar Khancha  Aparna Sen & Uttam Kumar
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGvfDJ0TskU.    Teen Bhuboner Pare:(1969) Soumitra chatterjee and  Tanuja. 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgUYXLiZLtA;   Deep Jele Jai . with Suchitra Sen, and then Kohra in Hindi had the same music. 
I just understand music as it has no language you just have to feel .



All these songs are amazing Neerja .. the 1st one "Ei Poth Jodi Na Ses Hoy" from Saptapadi is my personal favorite .. I am a huge fan of Uttam-Suchitra pairing .. no onscreen couple even created such enigma ever .. they were just made for each other .. if you love these songs you can search any Hamanta Kumar and Sandhya Mukherjee songs .. they were musical voice of these pair .. and I too am a fan of classic Bengali movies and songs ..

Hello all, here's some great news. On 15th Aug, Epic Channel would be having a marathon of Stories by Rabindranath Tagore. Which means, they will be playing all episodes back to back all day. So from Chokher Bali to Vafadar, all episodes being repeated. Smile 

Btw, they seemed to have renamed Khokababu as Vafadar. Wonder why. 

Sayanee, thanks for the briefing on Khokababu. I think I have seen a similar story in an old regional movie. Can't recall which one but story seems familiar. 

Broken Nest was brilliant. What beautiful songs. Amrita Puri was very good except I thought she overdid at some places. They released the audio of one of the songs. 


Looking forward to today's Khokababu or Vafadar, whatever they might call it. What's in a name as long as it's Tagore. Smile
