Raktabeej was Shiboprosad Mukherjee and Nandita Roy’s 2023 brainchild that did quite well at the theatres and had a trending trailer on social media as well. The Bengali film is a seamlessly interwoven tapestry that showcases both the wonderful bond shared by an ageing president and his elder sister as well as the fight led by special police officers against the terrorist plot brewing in Khoyragarh.

Plot of Raktabeej

The film has a layered plot. On one layer, it follows the homecoming of President of India Animesh Chatterjee (loosely based on President Pranab Mukherjee’s return to his family residence in 2014) back to his elder sister Gouri’s house for the Durga Puja, the first time after becoming the President.

On another layer, the film is about the strong anti-terrorism police front put up by IG Pankaj Sinha and SP of Burdwan, Sanjukta Mitra, against a planned terrorist attack on the President. The directors seamlessly infuse the heartwarming premise with an intense, edge-of-the-seat thriller. The film also employs Sarbari Ghosal and Zinia Sen to curate relatable and heart-touching dialogues when required, as well as witty repartee and fun banter. 

Cast of Raktabeej 

Starring the veteran and talented likes of Victor Banerjee as Animesh Chatterjee, Anashua Majumdar as his elder sister Gouri, Abir Chatterjee as Pankaj Sinha, Mimi Chakraborty as Sanjukta Mitra, Kanchan Mullick as Nityananda Patitundi, Ambarish Bhattacharya as reporter Bhasker, Tanusree Shankar as the CM of West Bengal, and Devlina Kumar as Jamini Halder, the film holds a lot of promise.
