Bou Thakuranir Katha (1953) Uttam Kumar Tollywood Kolkata Bengali MoviePublished in 1883, Bou Thakuranir Hat holds the distinction of the first novel written by Rabindranath Tagore, the nobel-prize winning Bengali writer, composer, poet and artist. Tagore revisited the plot multiple times - his later plays Prayaschitto (1909) and Paritran (1929) have roots in Bou Thakuranir Hat. His hero Pratapaditya in the novel has been described as an antagonist more than a protagonist by Tagore himself.

Channel-B has released director Naresh Mitra's 1953 film adapted from Tagore's novel in DVD format. The black-and-white classic starred Uttam Kumar, Pahadi Sanyal, Nitish Mukherjee, Padma Devi, Manju Dey, Sombhu Mitra, Bhanu Bannerjee, Satya Bannerjee and others.
