Krantikaal (Bengali: ক্রান্তিকাল,English title: Critical Encounter) (2005) is an Indian Bengali feature film directed by Sekhar Das of Mahulbanir Sereng fame.[1]


The story is of terrorism that is plaguing different parts of the Northeast as the backdrop. Silajit Majumder, a militant on the run, takes refuge in a dilapidated mansion. Roopa Ganguly stays there with her father-in-law Soumitra Chatterjee and his father Haradhan Bandopadhyay who is confined to bed and is unable to speak. This film focuses on the friction and undercurrent of tension between the lady of the house and the terrorist. It leads to a brief mutual self-discovery that gives rise to compassion.
