"Unlike the heavy duty star cast of the Hindi flick, Masoom, in Bengali sees two debutants and there is the unmistakable love angle here too," said Joardar, who made Kagozer Nouka.

"I have sought to portray how live-in partnership and sex can destroy two persons, their dreams and wishes but there is no scope to turn preachy in a feature," he said.

This is a reflection of the present day society where live-in partners and teenage sex are becoming norms, rather than exceptions.

Masoom in Bengali takes a hard look at the happenings, the Anyo Na maker said.
