Storyline

Paanch Adhyay is the story of love found, love lost and love regained in the lives of a contemporary Indian couple, told in moments past and present, through the five chapters of a relationship. Plunged into the mighty depths of love from the moment they meet in Kolkata, Arindam and Ishita get married but their very different ideologies - towards life and art - push them apart. He becomes a filmmaker who gets naturally sucked into the pleasures that come with success in showbiz, a change she the school teacher just cannot fathom. Their drifted worlds come with secrets that they have to share with each other one fateful night. The night that will change their lives forever. Written by Anonymous

20 December 2012 | by (Kolkata) – See all my reviews

Paanch Adhyay is a montage of colours, sound and visuals. With a beautiful pair, and a sensitive storyline, Pratim D. Gupta's debut is sheer poetry on screen. Dia Mirza and Priyanshu have their best roles ever. Shantanu Moitra weaves a magical saga. Sampurna, however disappoints. Tagore, Frost, 'Mrs. Dalloway', 'Sweet Rush' and the deja vu of Uttam Kumar's Arindam pervade throughout the film. So do traces of Swanand Kirkire and Subha Mudgal's versions of 'Ure Jay', long after the chapters close. And that Soumitra Chatterjee scene is legendary. A rare Bengali film which has the grandiosity of a big Bollywood film yet strong on content. A must watch!
