A rib-tickling comedy about a group of spirits who, in their various idiosyncrasies, try and save their only haunt, their resting place, when some unscrupulous builders try and break it down to build a modern monstrosity.
Another great film from a not so popular Indian Director
Buddhadev Dasgupta is among the very few who don't love publicity at all..........But that is certainly a drawback for this wonderful talent from Bengal.
Most art film directors in Bengal have to work with instruments of prehistoric age due to insufficient fund age so that is reflected on the movie experience. BUT....look at the camera angles...look how each character is placed...moving..entering into the camera view.....especially the frequent insertion of many great Bengali folk songs...and the characters entering into the scene singing...
Wonderful acting....Wonderful folk songs....and an artistic building of story line...this movie is great if you love art film.
