Storyline

Indraneel's sudden death averts a possible divorce, and takes Radhika on a fantastic inward journey of discovery of her own roots through the language of poetry, and lost love. A publisher asks Radhika to complete Indraneel's works. This compels her to study his work, and thus begins her journey into the past. She realizes how much he romanticized their mundane, everyday life. Yet in reality, he was often insensitive, negligent and apathetic towards her. She wonders about his dual identity. How can a poet be unaware of his day-to-day realities, yet highlight moments from it in his art? Is art essentially an artifice? Written by Reliance Big Pictures

The Thin Line Between A Fictional And A Real Character
21 October 2010 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

After 'Abohomaan' the last Ghosh film that I saw, my expectations for 'Shob Choritro Kalponik' were quite low. More so because it had Bipasha Basu in the lead. Not that I have anything against Ms. Basu, I just think she's an average actress at best. Now I'm glad I saw the movie because Ghosh's film is about coming to terms with loss. I wouldn't say it's about grieving as it would appear to be but it's more about the loss of love in a marriage, the loss of opportunity, the loss of faith, the loss of oneself and the loss of a loved one. Thankfully 'Shob Choritro Kalponik' does not ramble on about these subjects but rather explores them from Radha's point of view. Ghosh beautifully infuses poetry and metaphors against photographic visuals. Many of the wonderful poems have nostalgic value. The cast is very good. Bipasha Basu delivers her finest performance so far (even though there are a few sequences where she struggles to emote right). Prosenjit is competent as Radha's husband who knows nothing but poetry. Jishu Sengupta is passable. Sohag Sen is terrific as Radha's maid and housekeeper. 'Shob Choritro Kalponik' is a journey into Radha's world where she is living as a working wife but she's also lost somewhere in search of significance. Ghosh has once again satisfied his viewer and I for one am pleased to see that he's back on track.
