'Praktan' which means 'Former' is about the failed marriage of Ujaan (Prosenjit Chatterjee) and Sudipa (Rituparna Sengupta). The film opens at Kurla railway station in Mumbai, where various characters are seen boarding a Kolkata bound train.
Along with Sudipa, the first class compartment also has a group of four musicians (played by – Anupam Roy, Anindya Chatterjee and Upal Sengupta of the popular band Chandrabindoo) and Surojit Chatterjee (of Bhoomi fame); a honeymooning couple; an elderly couple played by Soumitra Chatterjee and Sabitri Chatterjee, and a mother Molly (played by Aparajita Adhya) with her daughter Putul. Over the course of the 30 odd hours of the train journey, it takes us through how the various characters are dealing with ghosts of their past.
