According to Ramkrishna Paramhansa Deb, darkness is the Ultimate Mother, or Kali:
My Mother is the principle of consciousness. She is Akhanda Satchidananda; indivisible Reality, Awareness, and Bliss. The night sky between the stars is perfectly black. The waters of the ocean depths are the same; The infinite is always mysteriously dark. This inebriating darkness is my beloved Kali.

Screenplay Films Bengali Movie Ekti Tarar Khonje (Stars Never Sleep) - Official Trailer and Poster

May 15, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio) Ekti Tarar Khonje is a new-age romantic thriller, from the National Award winning producers of Antaheen and Anuranan. The Kolkata Bengali movie is directed by a three-time National Award winning cinematographer Avik Mukhopadhyay and produced by Indrani Mukerjee, Jeet Banerjee and Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury.

The English title of the film is Stars Never Sleep - which is not a translation from the original Bengali title, which literally means "In search of a star". Perhaps the producers figure that a literal translation would not have as much appeal and came up with a completely different title in English.

The star cast includes Dhritiman Chatterjee, Shayan Munshi , Arpita Chatterjee, Dibyendu Bhattacharya, Tanushree Shankar, Rudronil Ghosh, Biplab Chatterjee, Arindam Shil, Arijit Dutta and more. Screenplay is by Madhuja Mukherjee.

Abhishek is young man in search of recognition and fame. He relocates to the big city to figure out what the future has in store for him. In Kolkata, he encounters the quirkiness of everyday realities. Strange people bump into him at unexpected turns and make his journey a roller coaster ride. His dream of becoming a hero is intertwined with his nightmarish experiences in the city. But, Abhishek’s ability to see things in a different light keeps him going.

Watch the official theatrical trailer of Ekti Tarar Khonje.
