Abyakto chronicles the peculiar journey of Indra (Anubhav Kanjilal) from his childhood to his adult years, as mysterious events turn him into a man he shouldn’t be. It soon becomes clear that this is due to tensions within his immediate family composed of his mother Sathi (Arpita Chatterjee), his father Kaushik (Anirban Ghosh) and his favourite uncle, Rudra (Adil Hussain). Through the representation of family dynamics, director Arjun deftly explores themes of love, regret, loneliness, sadness and the search of identity in this thoughtful family drama. This cinema has been doing rounds in many fil festival and is definitely worth watching.
