This is a real life story inspired by Subir Banerjee, the little child actor who played the iconic role of Apu in Satyajit Ray’s masterpiece Pather Panchali.


Pather Panchali is the cult film of all time, but ironically the star Subir 'Apu' Banerjee never became a part of any film again in his entire life after that. The most striking point being, his real life existence started bearing an uncanny resemblance to the 'reel life' Apu. The saddest and probably the weirdest coincidence being that when Subir acted in Pather Panchali as a kid he didn’t have the faintest idea that he was destined to carry the 'reel life' character’s curse throughout his life. This Kaushik Ganguly film is a tribute to world’s most celebrated child actor.
