In my country the Goddess Kali is dark-complexioned. She is the goddess of safety and courage and she likes the color red. Women in my country wear red in their weddings. The color of death is white. Sometimes Kali signifying eternity is green too! Color have played a vital role in my movie.

To speak of the soul of this film- it is a common belief that it lies inside the body. It controls our ego. It takes many thousand years to see the manifestation of the supernatural . There is also the eternal fight between the right and wrong. The story of the film “Ek Paaye Royechho Dnariye” is about all this .

O did you say it is hard to stand on a leg? What about the tree?

We like stories. My country is the land of story-tellers. The epic Ramayan is written in rhymes . This film has rhyme in its soul. Drama and folk-lore has been merged in the film to give its form . Is it possible to forget our mythology?

Synopsis of the film “Ek Paye Royecho Dariye”

The poet is stripped of his saffron shirt, red hat and green pants.
Are these clothes very important?
The boy wears his clothes and enters the poet’s house. Both the poet and his wife cannot make any difference between the man who enters the poet and the poet himself. . Who is this man? The poet has looked for him all over India.

Poet Sengupta was doing fine as the head clerk of a government office. He is also a renowned poet. However the honor of being a poet comes with the price of selling his integrity and sense of morality which he is willing to pay. But his soul protests against this. That is when the poet sees a man meditating, while balancing himself on one leg.
Before that, he hears his friend Sanatan speaking of the politics of murder, rape and corruption, which is quite the order of the day and which the poet considers to be quite fair. But ever since he sees the man meditating, he forgets how to write poems.

Why can’t he write a line? Why is he always reminded of his mother being raped when he was very young? Why is his childhood lover questioning his feelings about love? Is the poet a naked sage?

An ascetic woman says that the man the poet sees is none but his own soul. It was at this time that the poet meets with misfortunes in his personal life. His wife gets killed in a terrorist attack and his daughter is abused brutally by his own friend. Darkness rules his life and he cannot not win over it. It is hard to decipher the rhythm of life when the heart is in misery. He suffers immeasurably, unable to cope with the grim realities of his life.

The red hat that the poet wore signifies the red womb. His saffron shirt signifies the departure of the child’s body from the mother’s womb. And the green pants can be compared to the act of standing one legged on the green earth. But the poet’s soul can not stand one-legged in that attire.

People considers him as an intruder and tortures him. His politician friend recognizes him and frees him from his agony. It is as if hope can still be pinned upon the politicians to free the society from its many ills. Sanatan’s daughter reminds the poet that to lead an upright and honest life isn’t an easy thing to do. It is necessary for a poet to have
a free mind in order write poems. The poet’s daughter is also promised her desired freedom of mind by the green nature who has been standing upright all along.
