Synopsis[edit]

A gang of criminals terrorize the village Dukhia in rural Bengal, where gang rapes have become a recurring nightmare. Children, aged females, neither are spared. Complicit police authorities refuse to take action against the barbaric criminals because they enjoy an unholy patronage of a local political leader who takes his power and clout for granted. Overcome by a sense of social responsibility, idealist local teacher, Barun Biswas stands up and confronts the scourge and forms an activist group named 'Jagaran Mancha'. They agitate against political patronage the criminals enjoy and demand their immediate arrest. The criminals murder Barun while he was returning from school. Binod Bihari Dutta, who met Barun before his death and was inspired by his idealistic, socially responsible thinking, is shocked to know of Barun's death and rushes to Dukhia to give justice to his memory. He comes to know of the menace and depravity, the criminals have subjected the village to and the fact that after Barun's death, the criminals were released by the corrupt police officers. Binod Dutta tries to motivate villagers like Barun had done before to continue their fight against this malaise. Special Branch Officer, badass no-nonsense cop Animesh Dutta's posting at Dukhia comes as sweet serendipity, almost divine intervention. He comes to know of Barun Biswas and his murder from Binod Dutta but friction develops between Binod's idealistic struggle and Animesh' unconventional and semi-legal ways. Mysteriously, all the criminals start getting murdered one after the other. Rumors float in the village that Barun is back from the dead to punish his killers. Animesh suspects 'Jagaran Mancha' and believes these killings to be revenge for Barun's murder. He vows to Binod Dutta that he will protect the last criminal as it his duty as a police officer and a public servant. It is revealed that Binod Dutta has been killing the criminals all along in ingenious ways with the help of a few 'Jagaran Mancha' members.After Binod kills the last criminal by ripping his stomach open, Animesh rescues him from the scene, and drops him off outside the village. Animesh has a Machiavellian perspective at the whole thing and decides to bury the case. In the last scene Animesh says he's just become a father and he's going to name his son, "BARUN".

The song Haath Dhoreche Gaacher Paata was released on 8 July 2013 at the official YouTube channel of Shree Venkatesh Films.[2] The music video of the song featured actors Mimi Chakraborty and Parambrata Chatterjee. The sequences were shot in a village of West Bengal.[3] The song was well received by the public as well as by critics and reviewers. Basically a love song, "Haath Dhoreche Gaacher Paata" involved the use of chiefly Indian instruments. Both Shreya Ghoshal's voice as well as Srijato's lyrics were well appreciated.[4] A video of the making of the song was also released later by Sangeet Bangla. Director Raj Chakraborty stated that the entire song was shot in a situation when the atmospheric temperature was about 35° Celsius, resulting in quite a hardship for the entire cast and crew.[5] For this song, Shreya Ghoshal was nominated for Best Female Vocalist of The Year 2013 by Mirchi Music Awards Bangla.
