One might not repay a teacher’s services solely by money and could also perform a specific task for a teacher as Gurudakkhina.
Jayanta (Tapas Pal) is a poor man who has been raised by his teacher (Kali Banerjee) and widowed sister (Anuradha Roy).
Thanks to his amazing singing voice, Jayanta lands up in Kolkata and becomes a big name in the music industry. There he falls in love with Rupa (Satabdi Roy), who is the daughter of a rich, corrupt businessman.
When Jayanta’s teacher falls sick, he requests Rupa’s father for a loan who gives him the money for his Guru’s treatment on one condition; Jayanta must stop singing immediately. What happens next? Watch the cult film Gurudakkhina only on Zee Bangla Cinema to find out!
