Anirban Bhattacharya’s directorial debut Mandaar has managed critical appreciation. Loosely based on William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the web series was dropped on Hoichoi in November last year. With Debesh Roy Chowdhury, Sohini Sarkar, Debashish Mondal, and others, the show has also received accolades for its unique storytelling, powerful performances, and style. 

Within a year of his directorial debut, Anirban is back with his second venture as a filmmaker. This time, he is all set to present a feature film, Ballavpurer Rupkotha. Like Mandaar which is based on Macbeth, Ballavpurer Rupkotha is also based on a play. This time it is an eponymous work by Badal Sircar. While the film will hit the theatre during Diwali, the teaser of Ballavpurer Rupkotha was dropped on September 17. 

Anirban took to his social media and posted that after getting the love and appreciation for Mandaar, he, along with his team, has mastered the courage to venture into another directorial project. He also stated that this film will be of a different flavour and asked people to take a look at the teaser.

Unlike many of Badal Sircar’s other important works, Ballavpurer Rupkotha is a fantasy horror play with an underlying love story. In the teaser, we get an eerie glimpse of a mansion. Anirban’s voice tries to narrate some information regarding the film. With an intriguing soundscape, his voice gets disrupted due to some apparent technical glitch. 

The plot of the play delves into the family of a young landlord, who has lost almost every bit of his family's money but still owns a mansion. He desperately tries to sell the house and finally, when he gets a buyer, the dark past of the mansion comes out.
