Gone Kesh: Film Review – The Bald and the Beautiful

Verdict: Shweta Tripathi adds another feather to her cap of good performances.

Produced by Eros International and Dhirendra Nath Ghosh Films production, Gone Kesh is the directorial debut of Qasim Khallow. The film stars Shweta Tripathi in the lead. After delivering some great performances in Masaan (2015) and Haraamkhor (2015), the actress has taken on this bold or rather “bald” role. It is very impressive for an actress as young as her to play a character in a bald avatar in most scenes of the film. Also starring Vipin Sharma, Deepika Amin and Jitendra Kumar, Gone Kesh is a must-watch for many reasons.

What’s Gone Kesh About:

In a small, quiet and charming city of Siliguri live the Dasgupta family. Enakshi Dasgupta (Shweta Tripathi) is the only child. Their happy and content life is soon turned upside down when Enakshi starts having really bad hair fall. What the family thinks is just another calcium or vitamin deficiency is diagnosed as alopecia – an immune system disorder that results in total hair loss. How young Enakshi and her parents deal with this condition and the society’s reaction to it and how their dreams take a backseat for her treatment is what the film deals with mainly.

What Works:

Qasim Khallow, the director of Gone Kesh has done a fantastic job at handling the topic. The film’s story is beautiful and teaches you how to conquer fear and question the absurd beauty standards set in society. Through Enakshi’s character, Qasim shows us how your dreams should not be based on your looks. The cast performances are brilliant and the actors make it look every bit as real as it could be. Be it the dialogues or their delivery, the actors made it sound and look effortless. The father-daughter bond is beautifully portrayed by Vipin Sharma and Shweta Tripathi. Jitendra Kumar as Shirsho Roy who is in love with Enakshi does a wonderful job too. The scenes between Jitendra and Shweta are super sweet and definitely bring a smile to your face. The camera has captured the beauty of the less known city and the people of Siliguri well.

What Could’ve Been Better:

There’s not much that anyone would find wrong with Gone Kesh, which speaks volumes about the movie. The film’s length could have been trimmed a bit to make it crisp. While it’s a short film, at times it feels a tad stretched. A deeper insight into Shirsho’s life would also have been ideal in the story.

Why You Should Watch:

A light-hearted take on alopecia, Gone Kesh is a film for everyone. It brings tears to your eyes and makes you smile at the same time. This heart-warming film should not be missed at all!
