Rituparno Ghosh delivers one of the best performance ever in Bengali language film
3 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

The film is about filmmaker Abhiroop Sen(Rituparno Ghosh) and his bisexual photographer Basudeb (Indraneil Sengupta).They are from Delhi, into a homosexual relationship & come to Kolkata to make a film on Chapal Bhaduri,the theater & 'jatra'(popular folk-theater) artists who was a master of playing female characters in his golden days,when females were not allowed from Bengali families to join theater.In reality he is homosexual,from his very earlier stage of childhood he realized his female soul in a male body.The film tells us his sad story of his life- how he was never understood by his surroundings, how everyone deserted him, how his beloved ones bulldozed his feelings throughout his life & how he spent his life for those who ditched him. While doing the film Rituparno relates Chapal with himself. He plays dual role in this movie. As a director & Chapal Bhaduri's youth role. When their life story intersects -they realize the cruelty towards homosexuals.Chapal features as himself in the movie.He is one of the very less known, great actors of Bengali cinema. The famous director Rituparno Ghosh, delivers one of the best performance ever in Bengali language film.The film has a very good script,camera work, direction & acting team. It has portrayed tender touches for human relations with vivid & minute details. Though it was made focusing on homosexual audience but it has won heart of millions throughout the globe.
