Commenting on the film Director Anirban Chakraborty said, “Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay was such an author who always gave a lot of content in just a single line and all his stories and novels are familiar to film scripts, that’s why he is my favourite. ‘O ABHAGI’ is an adaptation of ‘ABHAGIR SWARGO’. The raw and harsh reality of rural culture has been portrayed in this film. The presentation and the treatment of every audio visual part is unique and experimental. A lot of new central characters are added in the screenplay with the main characters created by Sarat Chandra. The challenge was to create something new without tampering the essence of the actual story.”
