Based on a radical short story by Subodh Ghosh titled “FOSSIL”, Anjangadh was another path breaking film like UDAYER PATHEY. The film is a bold statement on the gradual encroachment of the powerful political lobby into the tribal belt of Bihar, with a view to dispossess the adivasis who were the original occupants of the land. A direct conflict arises between the ruling class and the tribal minority of the region. Made the year after India’s independence, one cannot ignore the adroit references to India’s colonial masters who had usurped power.
