Plot[ edit ] The plot of the movie goes back to a similar outing the writer Sunil Gangopadhyay took in the early days of his poetic career. The story unfolds around a group of four friends, quite unlike each other and yet bonded together deeply. The four friends are all educated and come from different layers of society, but the urge to escape from the daily grinding of city forces them to go out into the land of tribes. Of the four friends, Asim Soumitra Chatterjee , the leader of the pack, owns the car they drive in, has a cushy job, likes the company of girls and yet is very conscious of how he should be perceived by them.

They arrive at a little village in the state of Bihar. Not having made any arrangements for their stay, they come across a rest house. The four young men are full of the over-confidence of the big city and scant respect for the rural villagers. The group is led by Asim Soumitra Chatterjee , the richest of the four. Sanjoy Subhendu Chatterjee is a timid person who always plays it safe. The sportsman, non-intellectual Hari Samit Bhanja wants to forget a girl who recently rejected him.
Sekhar Robi Ghosh is self-confident and comical. The journey into the forest turns out to be a journey of self-discovery. They spend their first night getting drunk at a local liquor shop. Hari is drawn towards one of tribal women, Duli Simi Garewal , whose untamed quality enhances her appeal. Asim is interested in Aparna Sharmila Tagore , a cool, self-confident young woman whose widowed father jokes that he never knows what she is thinking.
Sanjoy is attracted to her widowed sister-in-law, Jaya Kaveri Bose. A series of episodes reveal the characters. Drunken sprees, social embarrassments, adventures with servants, officials, romance. Hari makes love with Duli, the servant Lakha ambushes him in revenge.
The friends depart again for the city, each with a better appreciation of life.
ADR is a beautiful chamber piece from a director who does this sort of thing very well. The opening sequence shows a motley quartet going on a holiday road trip to a forested area. The neat and shy Sunjoy is a conventional pen-pusher tied to the mores of middle-class existence. Hari, a cricketer is short tempered and impulsive, while an unemployed Shekhar is the joker of the group. They halt en route at a vacant government guest house, where they intend to spend a few days.
