(A Film by Pinak Choudhury)
DVD RIP 700MB mp4
This is a film about a group of residents in a block of flats called Ballygunge Court. They are gentle folk, all very successful and all in their sunset years. Their children have left home to search for their own Holy Grails, leaving the parents to make the best of the years left to them. The film weaves a tale of their lives, their loneliness and their stubborn pride. It also tells of their insecurities and their desperate attempts to get on with life.
This is perhaps one of the better films I have seen in months. The story by Bani Basu is compelling and is augmented by some tight screenplay. The background score by Pt. Ajoy Chakraborty as well as music composition by Chandan Roychaudhuri is often hauntingly beautiful. The lead actors particularly Soumitra Chattopadhyay, Mamata Shankar and Sabyasachi Chakraborty do a brilliant job. My only grouse is that the film is a bit too weepy. Old people have a resilience that seemed a bit underplayed. Sadly the film did not do well at the Box office.
