Taasher Desh.

Whoa! What? Did you say Q? Yes, it’s The Q (Qaushiq Chatterjee), the maverick, the radical, the insane, the genius. Like his name, his films too are bizarre.

First Class First.

A dark drama.  As an audience you would leave with a grimace on your as if someone had kicked your balls.
