Anirban Bhattacharya’s movie is a quirky horror comedy that revolves around the eccentric story of Ballabhpur Rajbari’s last descendant
Bhupati Ray, played by Satyam Bhattacharya | Bhupati, a student of dentistry and the king of a sleepy town called Ballabhpur, owns a huge but dilapidated royal palace and vast acres of land. Crippled by a huge debt, Bhupati dreams of moving to Calcutta and setting up his own dental practice studio/chamber after selling his palace, and getting rid of the ghost that haunts it.
Anirban Bhattacharya’s film Ballabhpurer Roopkotha is a quirky horror comedy that revolves around the eccentric story of Ballabhpur Rajbari’s last descendant. Based on Badal Sarkar’s popular drama piece, Ballabhpurer Roopkotha, which releases on October 25, tells the story of the crumbling rajbari of Ballabhpur, which only has two men living in it, the last descendant of the Ray dynasty, Bhupati Ray, and his menial Monohar. The dynasty merely exists as there is no trace of wealth. Both the dwellers are overburdened with heavy debts until one day they get a proposal to sell off their property. What continues is a hullabaloo of events revolving around Bhupati Ray, Monohar, the buyers and one ghost that makes Ballabhpur Rajbari a place of chaos for that night.
