A promising movie murdered by pseudo intellectual activism syndrome
30 April 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The production quality is excellent. The first half was really good. The storytelling, acting, directing, cinematography everything was spot on. Sadly everything started tumbling downhill thereafter. I was enjoying the first half and expected more in the second. Then it all started...forced character entries, forced activism. I then kicked back to me that it was an Aparna Sen film. One factual error was showing of the daughter of Konkona Sen's driving a Vijay(red color) scooter in the year 1971. The fact is SIL- makers of Vijay scooters only started production in 1975. Mopeds like Luna were available but its hard to believe a girl in the 70's going to college on these and that too not in Calcutta. It seemed to be done to make the character Uber Modern. Bengalis will understand when i say the second half was full of "aantlami" (pseudo intellectual). Inter religion love affair, extra marital affair, feminism and revolution packed in 1 hour. The movie should have kept itself to story telling without being preachy. There were many places where the film could have ended. Like when Konkona (Somlata) gives birth or it could have gone forward and if it ended with "Chaitali" getting married and gets back the "Goinar Bakso" My review is on the movie and is not anyway a comparison with the novel.
