The movie is about a 57 year old lady Mithi who works in a government department. She is not married and desires a man in her life. When alone at home, she dreams of man's touch on her face and body. She commutes from her home from the outskirts of Kolkata by a crowded local metro train. She is LOVE with the announcer (Vinay Pathak's voice over) at the Howrah Train Station.
It has been 8 long years since she writes personal letters to the Announcer and posts them - but has not seen the man. She knows that the announcer receives her letter because during announcements, he complements her personally.
There are two sub-plots - One of Mithi's sister visiting her for a few days and second of her neighbor who looks a religious man during day - but every night has noisy SEX with his wife disturbing Mithi's sleep. Mithi's comment to her sister about that neighbor is - he is a God's man during day - but BEAST in the night.
To overcome her loneliness Mithi gets a small puppy dog to give her company. It is during one of those days - The announcer says that he is retiring and the announcement will be taken over by a female computer generated voice. This makes Mithi very sad. I will not tell how the movie ends.
Kolkata is beautifully shot. The flavor of the city is dynamically captured with some great still shots.
Soni Razdan has played the role beautifully. She is pitch perfect as Mithi - living in her dilated ancestral home Pankaj Tripathi as a poker face neighbor is also good. Vinay Pathak's voice over for seemingly Mahesh Bhatt's small cameo touches heart.
The movie is adapted from one of the short story written by Annie Zaidi. (she is amazing writer - read her books if you can). The direction of the movie is good. The pace is slow, but it builds up the empathy for the protagonist's role. There are a couple of humming background songs, which are reflective of the mood and tone and philosophical LOVE longing of Mithi. The emotions of Mithi too are heart warming and connects the SOULS in LOVE. All those small small feelings are astutely captured by Director Sanjoy Nag.
I would go with 7 out of 10 for this short 78 minute film.
