Synopsis:
Time gives and time takes away. Astitwa is a story of loneliness, a story of remembrance, a story of love, of life and loss. It takes us into the world of man encompassed by grief and clutching on to memories that torment him and imprison him in a world away from reality. Shabin is seen to be battling with his wife’s ailment, her loss of reason brought on by the tragic death of their child. But as the story unfolds, the darkness and reality of Sabin’s own demons take over.

Synopsis:
For centuries, the goat has reigned supreme in the Bengali kitchen, be it by the shores of Kolkata or in the suburbs of America. A sudden disappearance of goat meat causes a stir in the pot of quandary, jealousy and elections: a theme that finds resonance in the lives of Prabashi Bengalis, in their weekend social gatherings, hidden behind exuberant menus, in between cocktails of gossip and politics, and the rivalries that ebb and flow.
