The premier of your first film is always special, but not if Diwali is on the same day. People are generally busy with celebrations at home. It is unlikely that all the invitees will turn up - especially if it's an off-beat film.

I watched "Raincoat" I thought it was "Satyajit Ray with commercial sensibilities" product. Needless to say I was excited about Rituparno Ghosh – Big B combo. "If not better than ¨Black¨ at least equal" was my expectation.
Rituparno is excellent when it comes to extraction the best in terms of performances, so lets not even go there.
The spoilt-sport is the content itself which fails to connect. Too many flashbacks hamper the narrative. The screenplay could have been sleek and execution more taut.
Yes, there are many layers to the characters in the movie but a few of them unwarranted leading to overkill. "Two is a party and three is a crowd", thereby one-to-one conversation between Preity & Shefali would have been apt. Divya Dutta's character was unwarranted, perhaps forced to drive the message of domestic violence and abuse.
Unlike others from the same clan, I expected Rituparno to be secular but guess he succumbs to blowing the trumpet. Too many Bengali references and unnecessary mouthing dialogues in Bengali.
O. Henry kind of ending was decipherable in "Raincoat" but in "The Last Lear" the open-ended question seemed more like a can of mysteries.
