Agantuk (1992) is the very last film directed by the great film maestro Satyajit Ray.
The film began with a letter to Anila (Mamata Shankar) from her uncle, Manomohan Mitra (Utpal Dutt) who had left the home long years ago and had no connection with them. The letter told that he was coming to visit his niece’s home. But these all seemed very suspicious to Anila and her husband Sudhindra (Dipankar Dey).
However, the man came and stayed with them stating that he was an anthropologist and travelled throughout the world. Though Anila initially believed his words and accepted him as her uncle, later she somehow turned to disbelief and thought that he had come to claim the share of the property by saying him as her uncle. As a whole the couple ran through a dilemma of belief and disbelief.
Sudhindra called his advocate friend (Dhritiman Chatterjee) to pull out the truth from the man. During their conversation the lawyear got angry with the man regarding their point of views about the civilization. The friend finally ordered Manomohan to either come clean or get out.
Next morning, Anila and Sudhindra did not find him anywhere. The family finally came to know that he is in fact Manomohan Mitra and found him in a tribal village. The couple apologizes to him and took him back to their home. When the time came for his depart, he handed a sealed envelope over his niece which, after his leaving was found that he gave them the share of the property.
