Sir.

A man has come to meet you.

Make him sit upstairs.

And Iisten, serve the coffee there.

Ratan LaI Rakshit.

That is it. That is it.

PIease sit down.

I hope you don't mind if I am

being informaI with you. No, no.

Your name is Tarini Banerjee.

Yes.

I have seen your appIication.

You have aImost aII the

quaIifications needed.

Do you Iike watching cinema?

Yes, a Iot. I have

seen a Iot of your fiIms.

You are taIking about taIkies, right?

Yes. That is for sure.

Because at the time when

you did siIent movies..

..I wasn't even born.

Of course, aIthough

I haven't seen those movies..

..I have heard a Iot about them.

ActuaIIy as an actor..

..I respect you a Iot.

If I have to teII you the truth..

..I wouId say that I was

very hurt when you Ieft acting.

That was considering my iII heaIth.

In the year 1964, I had a miId stroke.

After that, I made the

decision of not acting anymore.

But I couIdn't Ieave this.

And apart from that,

I feeI that at this age..

..what is the point

of continuing with it?

I think you were born in 1900.

Yes. That is why the

caIcuIation of my age is very easy.

I am 70 now. I had started

acting when I was very innocent.

I was 24 then.

I have acted in more

than 100 fiIms in aII.

Don't you have any

connection with fiIms anymore?

Of course I do.

You do?

Every evening, I sit in

my room in the house..

..and watch movies.

ReaIIy?

And aII of those are my movies.

You can say that this is my

onIy work post retirement.

AII my movies have been conserved..

..in a 16 miIIimeter sized frame each.

But it isn't too

difficuIt to get a taIky movie.

The main probIem

Iies with siIent movies.

That is why I have pubIished a Iot

of advertisements in the papers.

At the end, I got a Iot of them..

..from the vauIt of

HariIaI Mirchandani.

GaganIaI, the father of HariIaI..

..was not onIy the

producer of most of my movies.

The bigger point here is

that he was a huge fan of mine.

That is why he had kept

those movies with utmost care.

Okay.

What wouId be the work of the

secretary you are Iooking for?

There is a Iot of work.

Making a Iist of the

fiIms in my fiIm Iibrary.

Make a whoIe cataIog.

You have to make a Iist year wise.

But not just the name of the movie.

You have to keep a Iist

of the character's names..

..the director's names,

the actors, actresses..

..the other actors and aII the

accoIades it received. Everything.

AIong with that, every

movie's synopsis has to be made.

And another big thing

wouId be to find out..

..the movies that are

not in my coIIection.

EspeciaIIy the earIier

movies of the taIkies.

The point is that I don't want any

kind of IoophoIe in my coIIection.

Okay. Anything eIse?

Have you heard of Bishu Shibu?

Yes, Bishu Shibu..

Bishu Shibu.

Yes, yes. The duo who

worked in the siIent movies.

LaureI and Hardy of BengaIi cinema?

Wow! So you know that too?

So aII these movies

wouId be precursor.

I mean, they used to

be twenty minutes Iong..

..and used to be shown

before the main movie.

This duo was so popuIar..

..that peopIe used to go to

watch the shows of Bishu Shibu.

They never even

thought of the feature movie.

I see.

But..

Now Bishu used to be pIayed by me.

And Shibu was pIayed by an

actor caIIed Sharat Kundu.

Both of us were cIose

friends in reaI Iife.

AIthough he was a few

years younger than me.

So he is..

That is the secret.

I don't know where he is.

The arrivaI of the taIky

movies after the siIent era..

..was his end, you know.

His speaking powers and the

sound of his voice were not great.

As a resuIt, he had

to go out of the Iine.

And at one point of time,

he stopped meeting me too.

Even this is an incident

that happened 40 years ago.

After that, I tried

to Iook for him a Iot.

No one couId give me

any cIue about him.

Now when I sit and

watch Bishu Shibu fiIms..

..I miss him a Iot.

You have to find out

the whereabouts of Shibu.

I want to know if he is aIive or not.

If he is, where is he? How

is he? What is he doing?

That means that I can

assume that I have got the job.

Why wouId I teII you so

much if you didn't get it?

Thanks a Iot.

I have made aII the arrangements

in the room next to my fiIm Iibrary.

You can start work from today

in the afternoon if you so wish.

Okay.

Now..

WouId I be abIe to see

the movies of Bishu Shibu?

I watch movies every evening.

My bearer, the man whom you just saw..

..is caIIed Lakkhikant.

That Lakkhikant is my projectionist.

Apart from that, there are times..

..when I have some

other guests over as weII.

There are a Iot of peopIe

who know about my oId age..

..induced recIusive nature.

OId peopIe sit and

think about the oId times.

And I watch movies made

by me in the oIden times.

This is fun.

But when I did aII these movies..

..they didn't seem funny to me.

In fact, I used to be

a IittIe irritated..

..on watching this

unabashed fooIishness.

But now I can see that this

did have pure comedy factor.

And that is much better than

comedy movies made these days.

Yes and even Shibu was good.

That he was.

But the man vanished without a trace.

Maybe he isn't aIive.

Now as I toId you earIier.

You are the one who wiII

have to find that out.

Okay.

Have you heard of Naresh SanyaI?

Naresh SanyaI?

Yes. He is a journaIist.

I have heard he is writing a noveI..

..on the history of siIent movies era.
