What they say

  • I was confident that Grinning Tree would be able to bring a new perspective successfully without disturbing my father’s work, his way of thinking, or his artistic sensibilities even a little bit. Taking a look at this graphic novel will prove that my trust in them was not unfounded.

    Sandip Ray

    Film Director

  • The experience of reading the illustrations is very different from reading words. This graphic novel has illustrated the crux of the story in an intelligent way.

    Rangan Chakravarty

    Film Director & Writer

  • The graphic novel Khagam has excelled not by merely narrating a story through pictures but by wonderfully capturing the essence or the life force of the story of Khagam.

    Kamaleswar Mukherjee

    Film Director

  • Khagam is an extraordinary mystery story by Satyajit Ray, though it does not remain confined to that genre. Competent hands have shaped it into a graphic novel. I am sure readers are going to like this book.

    Soumitra Basu

    Dramatist, Theatre Director, Educationist

  • What can be achieved in literature is very difficult to achieve graphically… The graphic novel ‘Khagam’ is an outcome of those challenges. I have read and seen the book. Actually, looked at it more than read it, just as one should do in a good graphic novel.

    Debasis Mukhopadhyay

    Researcher & Writer

  • The strengths of author Satyajit Ray were the natural flow of descriptions and the effortless narration style… It seems Mr Ray had himself done the foundational work for his short stories to adapted into graphic novels. The seeds that he had sown have come to wonderful fruition in his popular story ‘Khagam’.

    Sayandeb Chowdhury

    Professor & Writer

  • This generation is more used to seeing than writing. Though graphic novels are very popular all over the world, there is hardly any tradition of graphic novels in the Bengali language. I feel that this graphic novel is going to touch the hearts of the readers especially the young hearts of the readers of this generation.
