Inspired by a true story, director Kaushik Ganguly’s latest venture Lokkhi
Chhele talks about a miracle child born with multiple limbs. Set in a village of
the dalits on the outskirts of the city, the child gets celebrated as a ‘God child’,
an incarnation of Ma Laxmi. Amidst the blindfold of superstition prevailing in
society, this film is a journey of three doctors to fight for Lokkhi.
The film celebrated a grand premiere on Friday in the presence of its star casts
and crew members along with other dignitaries. Director Kaushik Ganguly is
back with a new story after three years and the film features his son Ujaan
Ganguly along with Ritwika Pal and Purab Seal Acharya in lead roles.

“This film is meant to bring a change to the society, it has a very serious
message. Lokkhi Chhele will surely be one of my top 3 picks,” added the
national award winning director.
