    • Synopsis
    • Rudra Chatterjee (Ahmed Rubel) is released from a 14-year-long sentence on grounds of good behaviour. His wife Damini (Rituparna Sengupta) is forever in conflict about her husband’s guilt and afraid that the truth about their father will be revealed to her growing children. Rudra was accused of murdering his childhood friend Gopal (Bratya Basu) and of raping Gopal’s young and beautiful wife Urmila (Paoli Dam). Is he guilty? Do the ghosts of the past haunt the family? How does he make amends with Urmila when he goes back to the village mansion where she lives with her physically-challenged son?
      Parapaar opens with a surreal scene of a courtroom drama on the banks of a river where Urmila keeps mentioning some of the incidents during the rape. This functions like a metaphor in the film. Damini is disturbed with Rudra’s presence. While the son is aware of his father’s crime, the daughter, who is an activist in the Nirbhaya rape case, remains unaware. The twist in the tale is revealed in the end.
