The film is about Shobha, young Tamil woman, who lives in Kolkata with her husband Sekhar, a reporter for a daily newspaper. She is grappling with unknown tensions in her four year long marriage which leads to her form a complex relationship with her new neighbour Manohar, a middle-aged reclusive Tamil man, who has a mysterious past of his own. Meanwhile, Sekhar, unknown to Shobha, is drawn to his fellow reporter, Divya, a forthright Bengali girl who is open about what she wants in life. Soon, in this quadrangular tangle of lives, secrets are revealed that make Shobha decide on making a change. Set in the fascinating city of Kolkata, the film tries to explore themes such as guilt, redemption and female sexuality in the context of an Indian marriage.
The independent film scene of India is exploding at a rapid pace. Low budget movies pouring out of this country are very impressive indeed. Revelations is amongst the creative bunch that does not shy away from the realism of a diverse and cultured country.
First time feature director, Jayapal, takes us on the streets of Kolkata, visiting the music street scene which is an eye opener, as well as the backstreet brothels and other avenues rarely visited by Bollywood. But the most important insight Jayapal offers is that of the characters who are swamped by the chaotic scene of Kolkata. Revelations focuses on the inhabitants of an apartment block, and how their life's intersect and collide to create an interesting drama.
The tone and pace is deliberately slow, but yet effective. It allows the viewer to observe with great fascination, drawing them into the characters and the surprising revelations they have in store. It is a drama well worth sitting through, with its humanistic characters of honesty.
