Srijit Mukherjee's magnum opus Ek Je Chhilo Raja is solely inspired by well known Bhawal case, the incredible true story of the prince of Bhawal, who returned years after his alleged death and the extended court case that followed. In the film, Srijit has changed the names, however, he has followed the books written on this historic court case in his film.
The film starts in a courtroom, where the Raja Mahendra Kumar Chowdhury (Jisshu Sengupta) is being questioned by the lawyers to prove his identity while the opposition tries to prove him as an imposter. Raja's past comes in the flashback where we see a benevolent yet pervert king, his marriage to Chandravati Devi and his alleged murder by his brother-in-law and doctor. Raja was saved by a group of Naga saints. What happens next, is the film all about.
