Just a basic outline of the idea
12 January 2004 | by Rainmaker2004See all my reviews

Well, first of all, 'palatak' means 'escapist' in bengali (it's an Indian language if you don't know). The movie is old and so is in black and white. The story is adopted from a short story by a famous bengali writer. It is a story of a man who couldn't stand the bounds and chains of happy settled life and preferred the bengali village outdoors better. He has no fixed ambition other than to go to places and meet different people. A perfect bohemian character. The movie is about his journey and about the people he meets on his way. Given a choice of selecting the best feature of the movie, I probably couldn't make up my mind between the acting and the music. The songs are incredible and the acting unbelievable. To get the real feel of the movie you must understand bengali, subtitles never have the same depth and punch. If you are a bengali movie lover and want to see some great acting and hear some great music, this movie is a must-watch. I'm an fan of bengali movies and specially the old ones. I HAVE to give it a 10 out of 10.
