did not live up to the expectations
15 January 2006 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Supposed to be one of Adoor Gopalkrishnan's most abstract movies. had gone in the hope of seeing a brilliant work, but tremendously disappointed.A very bad execution of the dual personality theme.Adoor killed the movie in trying to sound too abstract. Art house films in India(unlike that of the West),have a disturbing trend of artificial abstraction (Satyajit Ray was an honourable exception), making it incomprehensible to the general public. Indian cinema in general has never been quite comfortable with the schizophrenic theme and experimentation on this theme has been few and far between.In that sense, Adoor's idea of such experimentation is commendable.However, on the whole "Anantharam" comes out to be a typical slow,sleepy art house cinema.
