It is an adaption of Henrik Ibsen's play An Enemy of the People, and was released under that title in the UK. The cast includes Ray's favourite actor Soumitra Chatterjee, and veteran actors such as Dhritiman Chatterjee, Shubhendu Chatterjee. Ray adapts the play to an Indian setting: a flourishing township in which a temple attracts devotees as well as tourists.
