Yes, it is also a romance but from different perceptive.  Bengali cinema’s iconic actor Prosenjit Chatterjee in the movie plays a man who loses his eyesight and then regains it partially. And he does not fail his admirers to retain his histrionics.

As he told scribes “My character has a chance to regain sight in both his eyes. But he chooses not to. He opts for just one eye to be restored because he feels there are so many in the world who need that one eye to see… It is an idealistic thought, yes. But I do feel we need to tap the humanism within us for mankind to survive.” In their first collaboration with the director, Pronsenjit says he fell in love with Drishtikone after story was narrated to him.Ganguly, who came to limelight after making Chalo Let’s Go (2008), Shabdo (2013), Cinemawala (2016), Chotushkone (2014) and Bisorjon (2018), goes on record saying Drishtikone tells the story of relationship between an advocate played named Mitra  played by  Prosenjit and his client Mrs Sen portrayed by Rituparna  from different perspectives. And that is why the movie is titled Drishtikone.
