The film received awards at the Karlovy Vary and Locarno International Film Festivals. Sheet Grishmer Smriti (Season's Memoirs) (1982), produced by Doordarshan, was based on a Dibyendu Palit story and so was Grihajuddha (1982). Phera (1986). Bagh Bahadur, Tahader Katha, Charachar, Lal Darja, Uttara, Mondo Meyer Upakhyan and Swapner Din mark the evolution of the director from literary narratives to post-modern non-narratives.
