Storyline

Shibnath has given his all for his country, including eleven years in prison. He also gave up part of his sanity for his country, since three of those years were spent in a mental ward. He was a hero to many for his passionate anti-colonialism, and now it is 1953 and he has just been released from prison. His friends expect him either to continue as a political firebrand, or to shrug off his experiences and get on with life. What no one expects is that he will be so broken by everything that has happened that he will sink into a well of passivity and despair. Written by Swarup Basak

Incredible, simply incredible
2 July 2006 | by (Vacnouver) – See all my reviews

Buddhadeb Dasgupta's Tahader Katha is really up there with the best of Tarkovsky (maybe a slight exaggeration though). The lateral tracking shots are incredibly beautiful. Like Tarkovsky, Dasgupta likes to have his camera wander off to capture the still lives of inanimate objects that are given poetic significance: swings, mirrors, puddles. Like Tarkovsky, Dasgupta likes the sound of cuckoo in the background, and the presence of wandering horses in the distant. To sample Dasgupta's masterful stroke, look no further than the scene with the wife and the husband during a night of pouring rain. I have never seen the environment used to such evocative power, not since Tarkovsky's Sacrifice.

The film runs approximately 91 minutes, half of what IMDb promises, although according to John Hood this running time seems to be correct - at least identical to what he has seen.
