Sachharine with some beautiful music
18 December 2007 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This film is about Ramnidhi Gupta or Nidhu Babu. Tappa is a form of light North Indian Classical Music. Tappa uses verse (usually romantic) but adds a classical tune to it to express the meaning of the words. Traditionally the verse used in Tappa is in Hindustani or Punjabi. Nidhu Babu set the verse in Bengali amid considerable opposition from all quarters. His verses and the songs are called 'Nidhu Babu's Tappa' and have become an inherent part of Bengali culture/music.

In real life, Nidhu Babu was a quite corrupt low level government official with a genius and passion for music. This film is more of an eulogy. It converts Nidhu Babu into a saintly figure (a rather fanciful interpretation) and also adds a saccharine sweet romantic angle. It is directed by Tarun Majumdar but I would probably forget the video, close my eyes and listen to the music instead. You may find it a bit difficult to appreciate the Tappa or the folk tunes without some idea of the language.

I give it 6/10 just for the music. Minus the music, it would get a 2 or 3.
