Go For It!

'Life, Somewhere' is written, produced, photographed, editing &
directed by Ushmey Chakraborty. Ushmey, is the son of, Indian Cinema's
Veteran, National-Award-Winning Actor, Mithun Chakraborty.
Now, 'Life, Somewhere' is probably, one of the finest takes on the
word, redemption. It's a moving tale, that is teary-jerky at times.
It's even gritty at times, but the writing is so sharp, that you don't
break into a yawn throughout. Also, Ushmey's direction is wonderful and
so is his editing.
'Life, Somewhere' tells the story Anjali, played remarkably by
well-known actress Amruta Subhash, as a frustrated & lonely women, who
plans to kill herself. When she reaches the top of a high rise
building, she meets two strangers who are up there for the same reason.
Her encounter with them forces her to question, is she really ready to
kill herself? Thus Anjali begins a journey, to be ready, to be clear &
to be focused will she eventually be ready to commit suicide?
Ushmey Chakraborty's writing is sharp, and also packs in memorable
dialogue. His direction is top-notch, and his editing sense is
wonderful. Cinematography again by Ushmey, is satisfactory.
Now coming to the performances! Amruta Subhash, as mentioned, plays her
part remarkably. She makes you feel the pain & frustration beneath her
in each & every sequence. There is another great performance in the
form of new-find Shrikant Watts, who also plays a suicidal. This
new-face brings in a lot of spontaneity to his character and remains
with you even after the show has concluded. Then there is another
new-find, in the form of Gaurav Pahari, who is menacing & most
convincing. Others lend good support.
On the whole, 'Life, Somewhere', which Won The Respected Royal Reel
Award at the Canada International Film Festival, is a must watch film.
Two Big Thumbs Up!
