  1. Noli Manaig's rating of the film Ajantrik

    Ghatak may not have formulated such a machinic ontology as Deleuze & Guattari or Donna Haraway but his notion of machinic reincarnation here was natively clever. A critique of Marx's means of production, it concerns a poor driver's desperate efforts to save his old, dilapidated taxi. Apostrophizing it, he puts mad faith in seeming Hindu transmigration for his cab to chug along & not devolve into "a lump of iron."

  2. Samuel T.'s rating of the film Ajantrik

    35mm Humanity's obsession with machine. One of the most complex, way-ahead-of-it's-time sound constructs ever. Recommended.

  3. Francisco R.'s rating of the film Ajantrik

    It's quite an experience, and may be a tough ride for some, but it's the kind of movie where the ending hits you in ways you weren't expecting.

  4. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Ajantrik

    Simpático filme que al igual que películas como "Christine" o "Little Miss Sunshine", un vehículo es un personaje más. Es a través de un destartalado taxi que se refleja el vivir humilde, optimista y lado sensible de un personaje. Es en primera instancia una serie de anécdotas de este par. A su camino se va manifestando ese perfil humano que para el final desatará en un cierre conmovedor y dramático.

  5. Undernourished Universes's rating of the film Ajantrik

  6. Doc Block's rating of the film Ajantrik

    Probably one of the greatest motion pictures to be overlooked by the whole world. Films will come and go but none will be so remembered as this for making the first human automobile relationship celluloid.

  7. Sudipto Basu's rating of the film Ajantrik

    That final shot of the child happily tooting away and Bimal forcing a smile was very poignant.

  8. Yuki Aditya's rating of the film Ajantrik

    officially my favorite film depicting taxi driver
