Agantuk is a 1991 Bengali-language drama film written and directed by Satyajit Ray. It was Ray's last film, based on one of Ray's own short stories, Atithi. It was a joint Indian-French production with financial backing from companies such as Gérard Depardieu's DD Productions and Canal+.
Anila Bose, who lives in Calcutta, receives a letter from someone claiming to be her long lost uncle, Manomohan Mitra. He writes that he is visiting India after 35 years abroad and, as Anila is his only surviving relative, he wants to meet her before he sets off again. Anila looks forward to the meeting, but her husband, Sudhindra, is suspicious. The uncle arrives and stays. He says that he is an anthropologist who has traveled all over the world, and immediately wins the friendship of their son, Satyaki.
