Where did you watch this movie?

Modernist critique of decadent rationalism by the former critic and film society organiser Choudhury. A group of young people live in an unnamed, culturally insecure town where they interact with a series of characters e.g. an old shopkeeper (Uttam Kumar) whom they torture and humiliate but who remains their staunchest ally until his death. The self-indulgent style is occasionally interrupted by lively scenes such as the encounter with a deaf politician, the ransacking of a shop and the number picturised on an Atulprasad Sen lyric, Ar kata kal thakbo basey. Aparna Sen played a double role in the film.
