"Life itself or just merely capturing it?" truly a Marathi masterpiece
17 August 2017 | by indiekeshavSee all my reviews

For a directorial debut, Kaccha Limbu proves to be an 'emotional wrench'. From the very first frame the film holds on to your heart and grabs on to it for the duration, slowly tightening it, sequencing it. Until and unless your heart is emotional drained of all feelings. The film takes you on this journey of a wonderful family tragedy, where you experience their heartbreak, their joy and the thin grey line they walk upon- that area of life is relatively known as 'being a parent'. With the majority of film being black and white, I believe that's how parents must've feel about this stage- a little black and a little white. Instead of ending the film on a 'Directed By' or 'A Film By' note, the director chooses to end it on 'An Experience By' note. And that is exactly what this film is about, it is an experience. The most emotionally excruciatingly at that too, in a good way i.e for me at least. I've never felt so brutally violated of my all my feelings, I've been penetrated from each and every conner of my mind. For the sake of Naration, The story is about a husband and wife and their struggle in trying to bring up this differently-abled special-needs boy into this cynical world. With true and real to life performances, gazing at their saddened eyes- it becomes hard for us to tell them apart from professionally trained actors. With the use of low-contrast lightning these soft shadows feel closer to reality in comparison to the more conventional noir or neo-noir style. Whether each and every person on this planet should watch this film, is a rhetorical question. But if I must weigh-in, this has been quite an experience for me at least for which I shall remember it for ages to come and ages to go. Suddenly, Family has found itself a whole new meaning in the world dictionary. I insist, please look upon this film with kind and naked eyes.
