Well for starters, I do not comprehend Bengali..Still I was compelled to watch this national award winning epic..The story is simple, but layers of complexity in the lead characters is evident..Was just blown away by the performances of both Debashree Roy and Aparna Sen..the conversations between the mother-daughter is extremely well etched..There is an inherent freshness in the movie..mostly because of the splendid cinematography..
Unfortunately, India is associated with Bollywood..Maybe its time to check out the so-called parallel cinema movement in India..Unishi April is one such gem that you cannot refuse..
