Prachya is based on the work of one of the most controversial contemporary playwrights of Bangladesh, Salim Al Deen. It is about a youth, Saifarchan, who hails from Shamukdanga village. The play opens amid joyous revelry as Saifar returns to his village with his newly-wed bride, Nolok. In the evening, he and his friends are all looking forward to the basarghar — the beginning of Saifarchan and Nolok's conjugal life. However, amidst these celebrations, veteran Somej Mujan remarks: "There is an uncanny similarity between 'vivah jatra' and 'shesh jatra'." Saifar fails to comprehend the meaning of this ominous remark. But due to a cruelty of fate, he is compelled to realize the meaning later. Then begins his second journey. This time in darkness and all alone. This Swapnasandhani production is directed by Koushik Sen.
