The life and notable works of Anthony Firingee a 19th century Bengali language folk poet of Portuguese origin.The time frame of the storyline jumps between two different time periods-19th century and the present day.
A rib-tickling comedy about a group of spirits who, in their various idiosyncrasies, try and save their only haunt, their resting place, when some unscrupulous builders try and break it down to build a modern monstrosity.
It is difficult to pinpoint where fiction begins and facts end in this film. The two are intimately intertwined in this marvelous piece of cinematography, involving the nostalgic memories of a schoolboy, who grows up in a dysfunctional but wholly realistic and believable family. Not that the schoolboy is ideal. He is also selfish, self-centered and full of insecurities. Although shot on a shoe-string budget, with hardly any outdoor shots, the talent of Anjan Dutta shines through again. All the the actors and actresses masterfully perform their roles. Each character in the film has a quirk, a personal ghost, a weakness, which are never hidden or glossed over. And of course, Anjan never shows himself in an idealistic, holier-than-thou persona. He is honest and brusque in the roles he portrays, which are often negative.
This film is surely a pleasure to watch.
