A Film That Resonates
1 November 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

Through the relationship between four characters, Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury's 'Anuranan', explores the sensitivity of relationships and how friendly encounters between individuals resonate more with frequency. Beautifully photographed from the raw English countryside (very rarely has it looked good in cinema) to the enchanting mountains of Manali, the spellbinding images that juxtapose with poetry echo in mind long after the film's end. The poems and lyrical dialogues are beautifully written but the story has its flaws. I found the ending to be drastic and rushed. In addition, I thought some of the relationships could have been further developed. The characters are recognizable and in the end 'Anuranan' achieves what it set out to because it focuses on the emotions of the characters and the buildup of resonance. The beautiful Rituparna Sengupta is spellbinding. Rahul Bose delivers another one of his best performances. I doubt Raima Sen has ever looked better and she acts wonderfully. Rajat Kapoor is brilliant as Preeti's sensex obsessed husband.

In movies like 'Anuranan', story comes secondary. It is the focus on interactions through dialogue, poetry and metaphor set against the beautiful landscape that is outstanding here and this is why it works. 'Anuranan' resonates.
