Chaka follows the heart-rending tale of a marginalised worker Manik and a prostitute Togar, as they try to build a life together despite all adversities.
Following a former sex worker’s turbulent journey into married life, Chaka subtly delineates the challenging lives of women across different social strata. Mithun Chakraborty & Debashree Roy’s portrayal of the distraught central couple lends an intricate emotional depth to this Bengali drama.
