Synopsis

POUNOPUNIK IS A BENGALI WORD. IT MEANS "RECURRENT". THE STORY OF POUNOPUNIK IS REVOLVED AROUND THE STRUGGLE OF A FEMALE SEX WORKER TO GIVE HER DAUGHTER THE LIGHT OF EDUCATION. BEING A MEMBER OF THE DARK WORLD OF LUST, SHE FIGHTS HARD TO ESTABLISH THE IDENTITY OF A MOTHER OVER THAT OF A SEX WORKER. SHE IS WILLING TO FIGHT ALL ODDS IN ORDER TO FULFILL HER DAUGHTERS DREAM TO BE EDUCATED.

 

POUNOPUNIK IS NOT THE STORY OF WINNERS RATHER IT IS THE STORY OF THOSE LOSERS WHO LOSE TO THE HYPOCRISY OF THE SOCIETY ALTHOUGH BEING COURAGEOUS. OUR SOCIETY IS RUTHLESS & INEXCUSABLE TO THOSE WHO TRY TO LEAD A RESPECTABLE LIFE BY ERASING THEIR DARK PAST. IN SPITE OF THAT, SOME PEOPLE DREAM & FIGHT. MAYBE THEY WILL LOSE BUT THEY WILL SURELY LEAVE BEHIND INSPIRATION FOR OTHERS TO FIGHT & WIN.
