Storyline

When love cannot speak,it speaks the loudest. This tagline of Nirbaak explains it all. But Nirbaak is a film which does not come with a fixed set of instructions for its interpretation. A tribute to Dali in its truest sense Nirbaak is surreal tale of love. A narcissist, a dog, a nymphomaniac and a woman, the one string which hold these disparate lives together is Love. Srijit Mukherjee does it best when he doesn't follow the trend. In the film Nirbaak Mukherjee plays with symbolism and various unusual metaphors. Nirbaak is a bold step from it's makers part. It is unapologetically distinctive and surreal. The film shows the city of joy as a separate character, which, very few filmmaker has tried to do before. Nirbaak is an experimental film and the makers are to be given due credit for being bold enough to do something of the sort. The minimalist directing style is commendable. Anjan dutta as the self consumed narcissist is a show stealer, Susmita Sen is poignant and subtle with her ...

Bad....worse.....worst.....Nirbaak
12 July 2015 | by arupmandal1983See all my reviews

"Nirbaak" is not a mere film, its a medicine for cinephiles. Its a film which makes one understand why good is good and why bad is bad. A film you can watch after attending a film festival instantly enabling you to adjust to the regular popular movies. There's bad movies, B-movies, poor movies and then there is "Nirbaak", a new reference for low in pretentious manufactured film-making. Anjan Dutta has pained as before with few of his songs, most of his directorials and all of his writings on films. But teamed with Srijit he achieves an almost insurmountable.This is a what Germany did to Brazil in last Worldcup, VVS did to Steve Waugh in the Kolkata Test match. Jissu and Sushmita did not seem to have any clue of what they are doing, as if preparing and working on scrips handed over on a day to day basis. Ritwick makes a mark even here only proving himself to be leftover saving grace in an industry which produces and celebrates "Nirbaak". The design in the start credits and the song in the end credits is where anything watchable in the movie is limited to. Srijit wanted to have a poetry up his sleeve...he does that by the way. The cacophonous "Mishor", self patting "Chotuskone" or dumb "Hemlock" all rephrases themselves into poetry in comparison.
