Antarmahal (2005) is a movie directed by Rituparno Ghosh. The story was adopted from one of the creations of eminent novelist Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay.
The film was plotted in sometime at the end of 19th century. Bhubaneswar Chaudhury (Jackie Shroff) was the zamindar (landlord) of a village called Gokuldanga in Bengal. He planned to please the British Government, the then ruler of India, by putting Queen Victoria’s face on the body of Goddess Durga’s clay idol. For this reason he appointed a new sculptor, Brijbhusan (Abhisek Bachchan). On the other hand, Bhubaneswar Chaudhury wanted a son as an heir of his lands and properties. But as his elder wife(Roopali Ganguly) did not conceive he blamed her and went for another marriage. After a few months when younger wife, Jashobati (Soha Ali Khan) also did not become pregnant, he consulted with a priest. As per the decision, at night, Bhubaneswar forced on Jashobati when the priest was reading hymns near the bed. In pursuit for a son he also agreed with five Brahmins to fulfill their carnal desire with his elder wife. But she luckily saved as the story came to a dramatic end. On the day of puja when the idol of Goddess Durga was unveiled, it was seen that instead of Queen Victoria, the face of Goddess was of Jashobati who was somehow physically drawn to the young sculptor and this led her to her ultimate fate.
