Directed by Arindam Sil, 'Dhananjoy' deals with a controversial incident of the hanging of Dhananjoy, the man who was convicted of the rape and murder of Hetal Parekh, a schoolgirl living in the same building where Dhananjoy used to work as a security guard. The court found him guilty and after 14 years of imprisonment, he was hung to death in the wee hour of 14th August 2004. He was the only person judicially executed in India in the twenty-first century so far for a crime not related to terrorism. It was a controversial case as a section of people believed Dhananjoy was an innocent who lost the case due to his inadequate financial background. 

As per the filmmaker, the team has gone through thorough research which proves Dhananjoy was innocent who got wrongfully convicted. Starring Anirban Bhattacharya in the titular role, the movie will question the judgment that was passed in 2004. The movie also stars Mimi Chakraborty. Here she plays Kavya Sinha, a lawyer, who digs out the old case to point out the loopholes in the case which led Dhananjoy to his death.
