‘Indubala Bhaater Hotel’ tells a story about Indu, a young girl from east Pakistan’s Kalpota village in Khulna. Married to a drunkard in Kolkata, Indu becomes a widow with an infant, at a very tender age.
Her story takes a turn the day east Pakistan became Bangladesh; the hearth in ‘Indubala Bhaater Hotel’ was lit for the first time with help of the meager savings that Indu had managed to acquire with a Bihari fisherwoman- Lachmi’s assistance.
The delicacies of Indubala’s hotel are seasoned with stories of both the Bengals (India’s West Bengal and Bangladesh) and the tale of a woman’s journey in this city. Time passes by and Indubala’s hotel flourishes as more and more people, food and every bengali’s desire to return to their birth land across borders, stays alive in Indubala’s Bhaater Hotel.
‘Indubala Bhaater Hotel’ is all set to start filming from end of August 2022.
