- Bhunibabur Chandni” in “Kanter Bill” which is best known for the paranormal activities of the late veteran stage actor Bhunibabu along with his make-up man. Idu Mullik gets visitors – BDO Nirvik Samanta and his family who recently got transferred to this deserted village on a very short notice due to political reasons but the ghostly incidents that haunt the air of “Kanter Bill” was delicately kept as a secret to the family by Gangadhar Babu and Sudhanya who were in charge of the mansion but was revealed by aged Umno Pisi to them.
- Then the essential part of the story takes limelight, when Bhunibabu appears and tries to frighten the family out of the house but his efforts gets dethroned as the 21st century people does not believe in ghosts and they get sympathetic to this old spirit. The family is not scared of the ghost but however they manage to scare the ghost which is highly comical in its approach and the conflict between tradition and old culture with the recent time is highly symbolised by the acts of the play. The ghosts are metaphored to be the old ideologies which forms the foundations of the present and future times. The family outwashed the belief in the ghost, thus ignoring the presence and existence of the past, but only Anuprerona stood exceptional. She understood and sympathetised towards the old spirits. She came closer to the truth that beholds the past time, and realised its necessity in the acceptance of the ideology through love.
- Love is eternal. Love is much powerful than hatred, and Anuprerona realised it through the conversations with the ghosts, she realised their story, the story of fear, hatred and how love can only empower that. Thus through Anuprerona’s feelings, the spirits got salvation; but Anuprerona learnt the lessons for her life; later which she wrote everything in her diary. The whole story is based on Anuprerona’s writing in her diary which is ultimately highlighted in the dropscene.
