Love, that's surreptitious & sublime, yet destructive.
26 May 2011 | by (West Bengal, India) – See all my reviews

At the very outset, we are greeted with the sublime radiance of Paroma: the way she keeps the clock at her in-laws ticking is a treat to watch. Little can we conjecture then that this ordered edifice would crumble, though it seems like a lull before a storm. The sprouting up of the clandestine amour & it's being watered at an increasing frequency does Paroma in at last. Aparna Sen's direction here, as in 'Mr & Mrs Iyer', is so true & exemplary. The film is a feast of moving ideas, so to speak, & remains long after you have watched the film. We must not forget Aparna's skill in forging up such a moving story & turning it into a plausible script.
