A series of spooky coincidences in the life of a fan make for an absorbing tale of suspense. Satyajit Ray is the icon and Shourjo Pramanik is the awestruck fan. The fan tries to follow in the footsteps of his ‘guru’. And then things start happening in his life, for which he finds no reasonable explanation …. Will he eventually succeed in solving the puzzle? Fan takes one on a well-paced, racy journey through the life of Shourjo. Rik Bhattacharya’s writing brings to mind the fiction of Satyajit Ray and Leela Majumdar. For some unadulterated, suspenseful fun, Fan is a good handful.
