Director Statement


One poet now dead, killed near his fiftieth year, introduced what for India would be "the modern spirit" – bitterness, self-doubt, sex, street diction, personal confession, frankness, Calcutta beggars into Bengali letters.
— Allen Ginsberg

 JIBANANADA wrote 3 Novels around 1947-48. SUTIRTHO, JALPAIHATI, and all were unpublished during his lifetime. Some critics editor n publishers held the opinion that MALYABAN Maybe a thinly disguised autobiographical work .

When a novel seems autobiographical, readers interested in an author's life must be a way of accepting fiction as fact “ candid “ autobiography may be an obfuscating apologia, telling lies about lives. The biographer confronting autobiographies and seemingly autobiographical works of fiction must become like the famed geese of the Sanskrit poetic conceit, who can sip milk in water, deftly separating the prized former from the plain latter. As biographical source materiel this main character - the eponymous anti-hero of MALYABAN In the same name strike resonances who knows something of JIBANANADA S life.

Our film JHORA PALOK is mainly rather religiously influenced by Das’s most critical, autobiographical fictional work called MALYABAAN. MALLOBAAN is the rarest example of its kind as a work of fiction in the entire history of Indian LITERATURE.

It is so dangerously intersecting life, Art , reality, and fiction at the same time ,on the same timeline

In our film JHORA PALOK we incorporated the recent time by introducing 2 unreal characters from JD,S poems , SOMEN PALIT and SURANJANA

SOMEN PALIT ( Who looks like JD ) is an introvert and lone artist of this time ,obsessed with love death, and suicide.

SURANJANA is an eminent actor turned filmmaker of this time ( Is a look like of LABONNO ) .Just after her recent break up with Somen Palit she started her first film ,the film is a BIO PICK of JD named JHORA PALOK .

The film continuously tries to explore euphorically by the transcendental means his transformation of the self to be the poet with excellence as a subject from his childhood to death .
