The Untold Movement...The right References...The melancholic Acting....Those Mystic Songs...and Above all masterpiece Story Telling!
" Baise Srabon" ( 22nd Srabon) is Spell Bounding, Erratic, Obnoxious, Mind Crunching and Meaningful all in the right ways! From Direction to Editing, From Songs to Acting, from start to finish it keeps on changing its context! There is so much one can write about the movie, that every anecdote/every phrase/every adjective will fall short of praises! This movie has lot of apt literally influences which makes it all the more special! From the clue containing poetry of the eminent Bengali Poets to the right references of " hungry Movement" of 60's to establish the base of a character, everything is a master stroke.
And on top of it, there is Prasenit, one has to put this movie as a cross reference for Method acting in Indian Cinema. He is such a vibrant performer which is so easy on the eye that most of the time we tend to neglect his abilities! After " Autograph" I was really thinking what difference can he do with this role and he justified his abilities perfectly.
The next point of talk has to be Anupam Roy's Music! Spell Bounding! Each track is easy on the ear and is equally soulful and also meaningful! "Ekbar Bol, Gobheerey Jao and Ei Shrabon" are perfect examples of music blended with lyrical poetry! Any Blemishes! Yeah, some sub plots are unwanted! could have made the movie ten minutes shorter. Also Raima is wasted to an extend! LAstly, go watch this one! They don't make movies like that anymore! Nostalgia! aro gobheerey jao...........................
