Rajkahini – No Man's Land! by http://fb.com/iamAlekhyaDas
The film demos how a group of women can stand up in a man's realm.
The plot rotates around a brothel which falls among the international boundaries during the partition of Bengal of 1947. How different people's life is built with this bordello and how everyone's life changes after the news of the partition is what Rajkahini is all about.
Rajkahini references the pitiless instances happening over the state due to the partition. People's lives are becoming a muddle and they are made to detriment. In the interim, a group of prostitutes from that very brothel stand against the entire barrier and held their heads high with superiority.
The brothel was established by Begum Jaan played by Rituparna Sengupta who is the most intrepid lady you'll ever see. She aids all the other dwellers of the household to be resilient like her and helps them to stand against the world and menfolk. She doesn't want a single support from a man and she'll perish without taking a single's man help if she has to. She has completely made the flick what it is. She is the toughest feature of the entire whorehouse and the movie.
[ I won't be sharing too much because it will be a spoiler.]
Everyone has acted their finest. Rituparna Sengupta, Zoya Ahsan, Rudranil Ghosh, Parno Mittra and Jisshu U Sengupta were the best of the best.
Cinematography and Composition were exceptionally marvelous. The bumpy and proportioned close up shots and the prompt cam action scenes were well shot.
Director Srijit Mukherji deserves a respect to put up such a picture, which illustrations that a woman can do more than a man can do. He indicates that a woman can triumph a man's world and make it her domain.
Every film has its pros and cons. This movie has them too. The opening sequence Ridhima Ghosh will give you shivers down your spines. The love sequence between Rudranil and Zoya will make you smile and 'awww'. Rudranil's valiant ransom will also make you have admiration for him. The climax scene featuring Bucchki shows how a woman can slay a man within 'flashes' without actually slaughtering them.
Rajkahini also displays how an exceptional movie can get off course with a single, final scene. The climax fight sequence could have been so much enhanced. It was ridiculous and everyone seating around the theaters were really dissatisfied by the part before the final credits. It was supposed to have a burning, destructive effect on you, but it was too icy and almost wrecked the entire pinnacle.
Overall, Rajkahini is a must watch movie for every woman and is dedicated to expatriates and the fighters of the partition.
'Jaye Hai' to the 'Never giving up' spirit!
