Movie Reviews by Shubhodeep Biswas


June 2018


‘Shiuli’ – A white little flower with reddish orange ‘heart’ in the middle that mersmerises with its fragrance at a certain time of the year with lasting impressions.
That is exactly how you describe a film like ‘October’. It shows the passion of Love in the most sublime manner possible.It will test your patience as well much like destiny tests Dan’s patience.
Yes, Dan or Danish, the character which is perhaps Varun Dhawan’s Career Best Performance despite of a lot of scenes where he lacked the intensity required which could have been far better but the honesty wins over technique there. But Dan is an inspiration for the transformation and patience with positive hope no matter how futile the efforts will be or how thin are the rays of hope in return of nothing. A warm Hug to Juhi Chaturvedi for gifting us Dan.

Moving on to Banita Sandhu, she did an excellent justice to the scope she was given with expressionless eyes full of innocence yet speaking thousands of words.I personally feel she will remain a ‘One time wonder’ Shiuli for the rest of her life.

About the movie, what i felt was One needs guts to do a film like this in a Circus known as Bollywood.Our very own Tollywood is ahead in comparison in recent times in this context.The director didnt over do things at all…There’s no melodrama or a climax as such..Just a very Normal treatment of an emotional journey where the protagonist seeks answers and love in the strangest of circumstances.
Add to that a very soft yet impactful background score by Shantanu Moitra with violins at places to shake your inner souls.
It is a humane story about love to find its own life cycle of blossom with utmost care.

But for an audience seeking entertainment, the pace(which is absolutely fine) of the story might seem boring. (Therefore, Not for everyone)
In love and relationships, a lot remains unsaid and undefined. What can’t find it’s way into words, will find a way to flow out.
Just two Lines “Sublime & Fresh”
Kudos Shoojit Sircar & Again Juhi Chaturvedi ❤
Special Mention : Above all, a special deserving acknowledgement should go to Gitanjali Rao for a brilliant portrayal of Prof Iyer.
She deserves more exposure in Bollywood.

P.S : Anirban is incredibly brilliant.and Watchout for a Gem of a Scene in Monoj Mitra-Anjan Dutta interaction.
