Sharing more details on the film, the director shared, âThe idea for this film developed when we were discussing the effects of mental illness and the things we could do to treat people’s mental illness, but in a dark space. This is by no means an educational film about mental illness. It is the story of a mentally ill person and his journey until his death. This is how Sanjeeb da and I thought of developing it. This is the story of Sanjeeb da. A few real life incidents were added to it and Sanjeeb da Santanu da developed the storyline.
The plot revolves around Agnibha Bose (Sourav), a struggling and mentally deranged novelist, who tries to deal with her personal trauma. However, when he meets the ultimate therapist of his life and career, a serial killer necrophiliac Taufique Asif (Subham) who is serving a death sentence in prison, it changes his life forever. Will Agnibha be able to release a winning novel after three consecutive failures? What is his relationship with his publisher and partner Rukmini? What are the dark hidden chapters in Taufique’s life? All this will be answered in ‘Bishakto Manush’.
