It is a different kind of story...so twisted that you would want to know what will happen next.I liked it very much...must watch.

Without giving much of the story-
It's as the name suggests 'vafadar',a story of a trustworthy  person caught in a web of unfortunate events in life and how he responds to them as called by the destiny.

Just watched "Khokababur Protyaborton" .. another short story that ventures into the human mind and depicts how amusingly it can work .. how circumstances has havoc in human mind. I can never forget Uttam Kumar's portrayal of Raamcharan, Joy was all right at the beginning but get into the flesh of the character after Khokababu - [Nanhe Malik] died. 

I have to bring Kabuliwala while discussing "Khokababur Pratyabarton" .. in the former, a man from far Afghanistan found his little daughter in a kid in Kolkata and the later is just the opposite .. guilt-ridden Ram found his Khokababu in his own boy and how! He literally believed that the kid was Khakababu and he has come back to him. Striking differences still see the tragedy it feels there is some connection in these unfortunate men. However, in Kabuliwala we can still hope that Rahmat will meet his child, can't say the same here. He left and the story ends leaving us craving for more - Classic Tagore.

Rightly said about both story . One ends with hope and another leaves with uncertain future . But both suffered the pain but found solace in another child in both the stories .

I was given the links of the song and then she also translated the songs . I love Suchitra Sen in Bombay Ka Babu with Dev anand . This movie had very lilting , beautiful musical score . 
 Give any link which i can understand 
was looking at some songs . 


If you like Suchitra Sen I would recommend you to watch - "Andhi" and "Mamta" [ Hindi version of Uttar Falguni] - in Hindi these two are her best works and all time classics of Hindi films. 

Here are some links of some of my favorite Old Bengali songs 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gD0Yza1AiBc - tumi je aamar by Geeta Dutta [Harano Sur]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrVMvKk05CU - Aj Dujonar duti poth by Hemanta Kumar 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3n6qxZl2BI - gaane mor Indradhanu by Sandhya Mukhopadhyay [ Agnipariksha -my personal fav by Sandhay mam]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6G_JCbeY8g - Ke Tumi Aamare dako by Sadhya Mukhopadhay 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNd7jOybEcg - Aamr Swapne Dekha Rajkanya by Syamal Mitra [Sagarika]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3ptQ_LbJSQ - ei madhu raat by Sandya Mukhopadhay 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5jJiRalKk0 - surjo dobar pala [Indrani] .. in fact all the songs of Indrani


these are the greatest love stories I have ever watched and best love songs I have ever heard. You can hear the songs Satyajit Ray's "Gupi Gayen Bagha Bayen" and it's sequel "Heerak Rajar Deshe" songs .. music directors were Rabishankar Sir & Satyajit Ray respectively .. they are not romantic but they are way different than any songs I have heard in Bengali, English and Hindi. The movies or songs may come with English sub so you won't have any problem. 

PS: If you want any more .. I am happy to helpLOL

I have seen some films directed by Gurusdutt but didn't watch his masterpieces - "pyasa" & "Kagaz ke Phool" .. my sis watched the second film multiple times .. anyway I read his biography "A Life in Cinema" .. his life was like a cinema itself .. at a certain period while reading I forgot that it was a biography and not a tragic novel .. in the stories of Pyasa & KKP he left some of himself .. I was in tears by the end of the book
