Great work of art by Arindam Chaudhuri & Anjan Das
15 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Saanjhbathir Roopkothara is a low-budget tastefully made Bengali film produced by noted economist & management guru Arindam Chaudhuri, and is directed by Anjan Das.

Coming from economics and management background, it is commendable to see Arindam having such great taste for meaningful cinema.

The film was one of the contenders in the final short list for India's official entry to the Oscars (Devdas is the chosen one now).

She was born at the stroke of twilight to an artist father (Saikat) who saw a luminescent aura enveloping his newborn and named her Saanjhbathi (twilight lamp). Saanjhbathir Roopkathara (Strokes and Silhouettes) based on renowned poet-littérateur Joy Goswami's brilliant poetic prose and, spins the tale of the girl, fondly called Tukun by her loving parents, who grows up in the world of strokes and colors, seeking the meaning in her life, getting entwined in relationships just like any other girl her age, oscillating between comprehension and confusion and trying to detach herself from the turmoil around. Though the silhouettes do disappear leaving her unfulfilled, ultimately it is the intense creativity that comes to rescue, helping her towards a greater understanding of life and reuniting her with her roots.
