Bengali language


A diverse network of colourful characters pursuing a quirky existence in the far-flung corners of Bengal. Be bewildered by the mansion dwelling eccentric aristocrat and his fiery mistress, the curious tightrope performing gypsy girl, the tree climbing psychic and the tiger hunting film crew from Kolkata, each in separate pursuits of fulfillment before their fates become intertwined. Based on a Narayan Bandyopadhyay’s macabre short story, Dasgupta indulged over a decade to craft this magic-realist style masterpiece. Tope will have you visually transfixed by the stunningly engineered cinematography and sweeping landscapes of a Bengali wilderness.
