Avijatrik translated as The Wanderlust of Apu in English, is based on the novel Aparajito by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay. It is the sequel to the classic Apu Trilogy, directed by Satyajit Ray. The plot takes off from where Ray's Apu Trilogy had ended in 1959 with Apur Sansar. The film focuses on Apu’s overwhelming desire to explore the world outside, instead of his inner journey and self-growth.
