Chaar - Movie

 2014. Bengali. Anthology of four short films based on stories written by three writers - Bateswarer Abodan by Parasuram, Porikkha by Sharadidndhu Bandyopadhyay, Kagtarua and Dui Bondhu by Satyajit Ray. It's directed by Sandip Ray.

Bateswar is a famous writer and his serial has caught the fancy of the masses - but strangely many different individuals come to him to get him to change the tragic ending of a lead part. In Porikkha, a young lady tests her future husband's character by paying him a late night visit. In one story two childhood friends make a promise to meet after 25 years at a given place and time - and find one another in unexpected circumstances. And in the last one, a ghost comes to redeem itself from a crime its been accused of.
