The trailer for Sudeshna Roy and Abhijit Guha’s Samasara has ample elements to generate suspense. The storyline appears to be based on the principle of Karma in life.

Samsara features Ritwick Chakraborty, Indrajit Chakraborty, Rahul Banerjee, Sudipta Chakraborty and Tanusree Chakraborty in the lead. Samadarshi Dutta, Arjaa Banerjee, Ambarish Bhattacharya and Devlina Kumar also play crucial parts.

Rahul Banerjee, Ritwick Chakraborty and Indrajit Chakravarty are three old friends who get in touch with one another after long and plan a holiday.

Two of them are married, but none leads a satisfying marital life. While Ritwick's character seems nonchalant about paying alimony to his wife, played by Tanusree, who is seeking a divorce, Rahul is too tired dealing with his wife (Arjaa Banerjee) for whom her husband’s happiness is of supreme concern.

From the trailer, Indrajit doesn’t appear to be married; however, he has committed certain heinous acts in the past, which he wants to cover up by manipulating the law.

The friends reach a place called Samsara, which appears suspicious to them, from the beginning as the guide (Samadarshi Dutta) takes them to a place where criminals were executed by hanging in the past. The demeanour of the caretaker (Sudiptaa Chakraborty) also intimidates Rahul and he confesses his fears to his friends.

While their discomfort increases, Indrajit comes across Reshmi (Devlina Kumar), with whom he shares his own dark past, in the same place. The twist occurs when she introduces herself as Basabdatta. His confusion increases while the guide brushes away his speculations.

Eventually eerie incidents begin to cause tensions among the friends and they start accusing one another of a conspiracy. The place begins to suffocate them and yet they are unable to leave.

At the end of the trailer, the guide is heard putting up a disclaimer that not every story has a happy ending.

Samsara’s trailer gives the impression of simplistic storytelling with surprising elements. The camerawork and colour tone also gel well with the cinematic conception of the story that doesn’t appear to be unnecessarily dramatic. Besides, the three protagonists seem to have contrasting personalities and that increases the intrigue around the film.
