Synopsis: An adaptation of Satyajit Ray’s short story, Potolbabu Filmstar is about a one-time theatre actor, Potol Babu, in his fifties, struggling without a regular job and family responsibilities, who has nearly forgotten his love for acting. Quite by chance, he is given a chance to play a part in a movie. His enthusiasm about the possibilities that this might bring him is dampened when he realises at the movie set that his role is fleeting. His disappointment is overcome as he remembers what his Guru once told him: that every part in an act has that opportunity to enhance and the responsibility to fulfill the larger cause of the production.

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.
