It is produced by BIG Pictures. The film has music by Sanjoy Das and Raja Narayan Deb with a lot of folk, modern sounds and also a song by Lalan.

Commenting on this Rituparno Ghosh says, ''Durban Film Festival is a very popular film festival and I am very glad that SHOB CHARITRO KALPONIK is being showcased at the festival. The protagonist of this film is the Bengali language and it is through the vehicle of the language that the love story of the film travels.''

Mahesh Ramanathan, Chief Operating Officer, BIG Pictures adds, ''Our efforts to broaden international horizons for Bengali films are beginning to be successful. Rituparno's work has been widely acclaimed globally. SHOB CHARITRO KALPONIK's selection in the Panorama Section of Durban film festival is a first ever premier for a Bengali film in the African continent. With this success, BIG Pictures have now secured selection for 10 of its world cinema titles in over 12 prestigious international festivals in the last 6 months.

SHOB CHARITRO KALPONIK is the story of Radhika's journey into the life of her late poet-husband, Indraneel and the revelations and contradictions she learns about Indraneel as a poet and husband. She realizes how much he romanticized their mundane, everyday life. Yet in reality, he was often insensitive, negligent and apathetic towards her. She wonders about his dual identity. How can a poet be unaware of his day-to-day realities, yet highlight moments from it in his art? Is art essentially an artifice?
