A mysterious gem among Indian cinema
I would like to say something about "Kaul - A Calling" movie which I happened to witness yesterday.
There are just two kinds of reactions received by Kaul in my observations, either best of all worlds or the worst than hell! I was totally in love with everything — say it direction, plot, dialogues, screenplay, cinematography, music, light/shadow effects, or star casts. Everything seemed precisely perfect. If Christopher Nolan can make you correlate science and spirituality by hinting towards the invisible string between an imaginary multi-dimension plane in the open space and the superstitious ghost conspiracy, then why cannot Aadish Keluskar think out of the box and make a gem like Kaul? I have no words to praise this cinema, it's beyond the greatness. I would love to watch more work by Aadish in the future. Wishes to the whole Kaul crew!
Pather Panchali (1955)
A must watch before you die!
Rating it 10/10, or rating scale is useless to tell how great this work is!
Overwhelming. Eloquent. Deep. People say this movie as a Indian version of Bicycle Thieves. But I would say this is more than that, very different and captures the emotions in the extremities of life, everything feels so real that one could imagine about (something similar as in Premchand's Godaan novel). This is the first movie of Satyajit Ray I have watched yet, and I must watch all of his lifelong work. And this feeling indulges my mind to read Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay's original novel.
Superb acting by every character, so strong, so real! Still camera, use of natural lights and shadows, makes you think how intelligent was the mind behind it. Sensitive story plot, and attention to every minute detail is phenomenal.
This movie is a remarkable and classic story which tells both how beautiful and worst is life in very bad and in extremely bad situations, and flows in different ages as time passes.
I can watch it for tens of times if I could make time for it!
As a note, Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon Movie is not so different, but Pather Panchali feels at home and heart touching.
A recommended one for classical movie lovers.
