I watched this at the Berlin Film Festival, it felt like extremely teenage film-making, an extended music video. I suppose compared to the more classical modes of Bengali art filmmaking this is seen as 'radical' but it really felt shallow and trying too hard to be controversial 'cult' film. You can't intend to be 'cult', that has to happen naturally. I look forward to seeing more new work for calcutta though..
This is definitely the best film to come out of India this year. Explosive, imaginative, moving, urgent, youthful, anxious and poignant. Great acting and strong script. I will be looking for more work by this director.
