About a city man trying to find roots in his native town.
Watched a film produced, directed and shot in Arunachal, "Crossing Bridge". Here goes my personal review on the movie that I call, "Contemplating life".
Shot in a beautiful place in Arunachal not less than any abroad destinations used in Bollywood films. The snow clad picturesque beauty gives the movie an eye catching edge. The blue print is simple and clear with very less rise and fall in sensory aspect. However, with the cinematography all framed under the extremely well block shots of scenic beauty narrates the life of a man that missed acknowledging the essence of originality in the hustle and bustle of city life. Crossing Bridge, is metaphorical for the log bridge over the gurgling brooks, see through streams over colorful pebbles and thus explains the transition that takes place in the life of this once lost man (the hero). For what seemed to be new to this city man, of the many; finding butter tea tasteless (traditional tea), struggling to walk straight over the bridge, TV being the ultimate rescuer of boredom, unwarranted telecoms network failure, narratives of spirits so on landed him to a place he had to know he belonged to. Meeting once lost love in an weird circumstance does nothing great to him other than telling him, "where he really belong to". Throughout the time that took this man to adjust were he was born, made him at the end realize, the "Recession" in Mumbai city, to which he called a "Holiday Break" came handy and worthwhile. The best thing about this movie is that it leaves enough imagination landscapes for the viewers to take home.. "open end" was the way the film maker choose to conclude.
N:B:- If you are not a fan of linear phase films and need the EOS (element of surprise) effect, this is not the film you would be looking for to spend 90 minutes. If you look abstract connections in films, this film is definitely the choice you would make.
