Tarak Dutta in 'Shabdo' (2012) Directed by Kaushik Ganguly, 'Shabdo' is among the most innovative films (in terms of storyline, making, and performance) to come out of Bengal in recent time. Here, Ritwik Chakraborty is seen as a foley artist named Tarak Dutta who gradually gets lost in a world full of sounds. The character has many layers, and Chakraborty's portrayal is astounding in the truest sense of the term. He delivers a unique mannerism that goes perfectly with Tarak's psyche. He brilliantly pulls out the character's internal conflicts on screen, which eventually becomes the highlight of the film. Pramit in 'Bakita Byaktigato' (2013) Pradipta Bhattacharya's 'Bakita Byaktigato' is an interesting tale of a man in search of love. Chakraborty appears as Pramit, an amateur filmmaker, who has never experienced love in his life and goes on to make a documentary on love. He embarks on a trip to a village and meets many different people along the way. The actor portrays the entire journey of the character effortlessly on screen and also succeeds at conveying the crisis to the audience. His body language is perfect, and comic timing is always on point. Mrityunjoy Karmakar in 'Nirbaak' (2015) Srijit Mukherji's 'Nirbaak' has four different stories, and all of them are connected with a common theme. Chakraborty appears in the last story - as a morgue caretaker named Mrityunjoy Karmakar who falls in love with a female corpse. The character gets obsessed with her, which further leads him to a tragic end. The actor is absolutely phenomenal here, and the performance is unlike whatever you have seen so far. While the film has some issues, this flawless performance will surely leave you spellbound. The list also includes Dev D in 'Maacher Jhol', Madhu in 'Nagarkirtan', Srikanto in 'Rajlokhi O Srikanto', etc.
