When Somnath, a young Calcuttan college graduate, fails to get a job in spite of his qualifications, he breaks with Brahmin tradition and goes into business as a middleman, which, he discovers, imposes a painful choice between morality and survival. Eventually the trafficking of goods becomes the trafficking of human beings as he begins supplying call girls to his clients. With Pradip Mukherjee, Satya Bannerfi, Dipankar Dey, Lily Chakravarti and Aparna Sen. Fully restored. "Under Ray's piercing yet compassionate glance, his characters darken with loss of innocence. The quiet urgency and emotional intensity of the film transcend its context; this is not only a film about India" (New York Film Festival note). Bengali with English subtitles.
