Anuranan (Bengali: অনুরণন) is the directorial debut by Bengali film-maker Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury. The film premiered at the 2006 International Film Festival of India.

Anuranan (meaning "resonance" in Bengali) explores the relationships of two married couples. The story explores the impacts and consequences of their relationships. In addition to showing how distinctly different two marriages can be, the title of the movie and subsequently the story convey the fact that people can form relationships that extend beyond just them being acquaintances, and yet remain purely platonic.

Synopsis

Rahul Bose stars as a creative and sensitive individual, who during the course of his life arrives in a lonely hill station in Sikkim to help build a new holiday resort. The friendship between the two couples, Rahul and Nandita and Amit and Preeti paves the way for a deeper bond between Rahul and Preeti. This "Anuranan" between the two is, towards the end of the movie, misunderstood by society in general including Amit. However, the fact that the love between Rahul and Nandita is pure, does not prevent the latter from falling prey to the rumour mills.
