Valmir do Côco,
Jonaki is a surreal bildungsroman of a woman, relatable yet fantastically distant. The dreamscape woven by the film invites the viewers to engage their five senses, only to transform into Jonaki herself. The film brings many other celebrated cinematic masterpieces to mind, "Jacob's Ladder" being one of them. The world ensconced within the frames is pregnant with a Tarkovskian essence (refer to "Stalker" and "Solaris"). Having said that, I feel compelled to add that Jonaki is an original experience, an unexplored terrain in the context of Indian Cinema. Aditya Vikram Sengupta has a shrewd ear for ambient sounds and background music - a claim that can easily be justified by refering to his debut film "Asha Jaoar Majhe" (Labour of Love). The ethereal, otherworldly vision that is Jonaki can easily be compared to Caravaggio or Rembrandt paintings. Jonaki is made of experiences, feelngs and chiaroscuro. It is a canonical example of magic-realism in modern Indian Cinema.
