Q on roll.
21 November 2013 | by annapro-gupta786See all my reviews

The film has been described as a "trippy adaptation" of the Rabindrath Tagore's play. Music and poetry is main soul of the film ,thats reason film move on without boring. You'd either love 'Tasher Desh' or hate it, but you can definitely not ignore it.

The narration has three layers bursting with lessons of life, regarding rules, hopes, desires and fate.It's a story about society and culture, of brotherhood and winds of destiny, of acceptance and revolution. It's a journey of twosomes and foursomes, of abstract and reality.

For those who do not understand Bengali, one needs patience for the film to grow on you to decipher what's happening on screen. And by the time the final song rolls out with patriotic gusto with lyrics that screech: "Break every barrier, let your mind break free/ Do you have the courage? It's a long way to freedom, be free, be pure", and you will probably understand and appreciate 'Tasher Desh'. Or else, as one of the characters say at the very beginning of the film, "You will never understand. Nothing is real. In reality, everything is a fantasy, fiction." Accept the film the way it is. Director Q's treatment of the film is very non-figurative, dramatic and musical like in a music video. It is a grand tour of illusion.
