Storyline

Parimal is born a boy, but there has always been another identity hidden within Parimal's male physical appearance. The only way out for him is to escape from his parents, his family, and his neighborhood in search of a world that did not seem so unidentifiable.

In his quest, Parimal reaches a new city, Kolkata where he is welcomed by a transgender shelter. And Parimal soon becomes Puti. There, he meets Madhu and falls in love with him. As Madhu discovers more about Puti's physicality, he wonders how he could feel attracted to a woman who has a male body? Were these things even possible in reality? Will their love survive the guillotine of societal barriers?

The film is a document that frames this experience of an invisible community, rarely portrayed in the arena of Indian mainstream cinema. The fabric of Ganguly's film moves beyond the binaries of a linear and complex narrative and instead brings forth a breathtaking ruthlessness that mirrors the hidden lives and traumas of the ...

'Nagarkirtan' (Eunuch & The Flue Player). A masterly crafted tale of two souls bound by love.
4 March 2019 | by tuhinindSee all my reviews

A tale of true magic of love... that draws our attention about the social prejudices & persecution...which acts as an eternal curse for those who are in love.

With 'kirtan' (devotional songs reciting about the love affair of Krishna & Radha) this film poetically depicts the passionate romance between (Krishna-Radha) Madhu-Punti in three phases 'pronoy', 'abhisar' & 'biroho'.

SCREENPLAY: Three timelines were overlapping with each other & running at a pace of perfect brilliance. So, when it approaches the climax the audience will surely feel the ache of 'Punti' that echoes with the cry of 'Radha'.

ACTING : Director 'Ray' had his 'Soumitra'. 'Kaushik Ganguly' has 'Ritwik'. 'Riddhi Sen' played the perfect female lead...As 'Aparna' for 'Apu'...(As when Sharmila Tagore paired with Soumitra Chatterjee in silver screen for Ray's Apur Sangsar/The World of Apu).

SOUND DESIGNING: Quintessentially appropriate. Communicates every deep emotions of this cinema.

EDITING : Played the most vital part to carry out the tone of this cinema from different timelines into a perfect continuum.

DIRECTION : After 'Cinemawala', 'Shabdo', 'Arekti Premer Golpo' & 'Chhotoder chhobi ', this film is another big contribution to world cinema from the director.

STORYLINE / PLOT : A simple love story which we were denied for 100 years of Indian cinema . India loves cinema & mainly cinema with love stories...no doubt all those thousands of love stories in Indian cinema created us , as who we are. The "story" of this cinema historically is a turning point for Indian cinema which provides us with the magic of love in it's truest sense.

It also removes the blindfold of illusion & lies which was created around love for last 100 years by Indian Cinema.

At the end of the whole journey ... With this spiritual upliftment, you as a person will surely be much more pervious to love & understand LOVE for what is.

A Must watch film...hopefully will be released in netflix for cinephiles around the globe.
