Padatik (The Guerilla Fighter) was a 1973 Bengali film directed by noted Indian art film director Mrinal Sen.


Sumit is an ideologue of an extremist left-wing party, and escapes from police custody. Thanks to his party boss Nikhilda’s connections, he gets refuge in the high-rise apartment of a rich divorcee, who works as a high profile executive in an advertising agency. Isolated in his comfortable refuge, Sumit begins to question the actions of his party and its consequences and also develops a somewhat romantic friendship with his benefactress.

This film is considered to be the third film of Mrinal Sen's Calcutta trilogy, the others being Interview (1971 film), and Calcutta 71.
