NIRBASHITO REVIEW

poster-of-nirbashito

Travelling to unknown lands with no plans to return, might sound like an exotic way of escaping the everyday grind. 🙂
But what if you are forced to move out of your country that till yesterday was your own? What if you are banished from your own country because you were penning down words that meant threat to the set up?

Directed by Churni Ganguly, Nirbashito was rightly awarded the National Award for ‘Best Bengali Film’. Inspired by the True story, the Film is about a renowned Author played by Churni herself and her solitary life banished in exile when her own country disowns her.
Nirbashito raises a lot of questions and makes us think & realize when shown from her perspective as she says “Its the SWORD which always wins,not the PEN”.With such a concept (courtesy Kaushik Ganguly), the film points out the shallowness & failure of the whole SYSTEM with Sarcasm.

Brilliantly written Dialogues are another positive aspect which metaphors a satirical unfortunate truths of life with solid references of Galileo,M.F Hussain & even Salman Rushdie in one of the frames.With Saswata, Kaushik Ganguly, Raima Sen up in the Sleeves, the canvas seems quite Soothing for the audience.But it is ‘Baghini’, an adorable cat who emoted & added an icing to the cake.
Do watch the Film for the sake of Humanity!!

Statutory Warning : Not for Everyone Though 😀

DRISHYAM REVIEW

29-1438189187-cgt2yv1viaewfm5

Incidentally, the Tagline of the film Chennai Express sits apt for a film like this.
“Don’t underestimate the Power of a Common Man”

I would rather not comment on the comparisons with the Tamil & Telugu versions from which it is Copied…err..Inspired but will definitely give deserving Credit to the Original writer Jeethu Joseph..Well Written Thriller, Sir.
With Very Suave Twists & Thrills, the Movie never disappoints…Specially, the second half is where the film gains momentum & is gripping with tensions thanks to the flawless editing.
I find it a little Under-Rated a film in terms of its engrossing Premise & Supense in Storyline.

To the Readers, I would recommend a MUST WATCH !!!

Coming to the performance part, I found Tabu as the Standout Performer of the Film.Despite AJ playing the protagonist, she captured every scene with her presence.The rest of the cast played their usual parts in able hands of Nishikant Kamat’s direction.Coming to Ajay Devgn, after being diverted to a series of unnecessary trashes, it is good to see him try on a ‘character’ for size after a long gap.But, with a little hangover of his roles played in the recent past, he could have been more un-heroic in his postures.

Summing it up, a 4/5 !! 🙂
Go to the theaters ASAP 🙂

AHALYA REVIEW

vlcsnap-2015-08-08-00h16m51s92

A short film by Sujoy ‘Kahaani’ Ghosh has been the talk of the web for a while now..which also shows the importance of reviewing it.
Sujoy Ghosh re-tells the Ramayana sub-story of the most beautiful lady on earth with a very thrilling and contemporary Twist of Magic Realism.Even at its 15 minutes runtime, the film leaves a deep impact on you..
Radhika Apte as AHALYA is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G !! I bet no one can take their eyes off her throughout the Short. Soumitra’s enigmatic screen presence as GAUTAM SADHU mesmerizes & Tota as INDRA Sen, a honey-trapped Rat is perfect fit.
Ahalya is a Must Watch & should not be missed at all.With Sujoy Ghosh’s deft touch and Radhika’s Sensuous Act, there are ample reasons to see this little GEM !!! 🙂
