Lovely cinema
5 November 2007 | by pratyushSee all my reviews

Brilliant movie. A young, keen minded naughty boy runs away from his village to go to Calcutta. The movie has a lot of good shots of Calcutta in the 50s and a lot of real cinema without any attempt to glamorise or depress things needlessly as a lot of films try to do. Things aren't attempted to be too dramatic and the focus is on depicting things realistically. So you have happy stuff and sad stuff but not artificial stuff. Even the children in the movie act like normal children would. I loved how Ghatak took the shots. For instance, a busy street is shown from behind a street light in the middle of the road.
