Kashmakash – Movie Review

Ramesh (Jishu Sengupta) is a young law student torn between his love Hemnalini (Raima Sen), the daughter of an affluent progressive thinker, and his father’s commitment to a poverty stricken widowed mother (Laboni Sarkar) to get her daughter married to Ramesh. He wishes to follow his own heart but when confronted with the widowed mother of the prospective bride, he chooses the latter with a heavy heart. The newly weds along with the others depart back for home on a boat and that’s when calamity strikes! Ramesh finds himself on the river bank after coming to his senses with the bride (Riya Sen) lying unconscious next to him. From here the two set out on a journey of their own.

A heartbroken Ramesh who has now lost his father in the mishap tries to bring his life back on track; he longs for his lady love but also shoulders the responsibilities of a married man without consummating and soon another disaster strikes. He realizes that the girl he’s brought home is not his wife but the lost bride of a Kashi based Dr. Nalinaksha Chatterjee (Prosenjit). What’s next? Will Ramesh be able to find the husband of this lost bride, (who has now begun to fall in love with him?!)? And what about his lost love? The girl knows nothing about his marital developments. It’s this inner turmoil that makes the story of “Kasmakash”.

Being the influential director that he is, Rituporno Ghosh this time makes a clean attempt to bring to us the sheer genius of Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore. We’ve all read about him, but barely experienced any of his genius. Rituporno makes this film a tribute to a story told many years ago by Tagore. A story that beautifully showcases the social scenario of those times and underlines the dilemmas of the rights and wrongs that one may go though even today. Apart from his eye for detail, Rituporno’s brilliance hardly surfaces in this film. Shot in beautiful landscapes and precisely edited in a liner format it also has musical compositions of Tagore in Hindi via Gulzar that may not go down too well with the non-Bengali audience. As far as the cast is concerned, Jishu Sengupta is commendable, Raima Sen looks good, Riya Sen was not a very pleasant surprise and Prosenjit plays a brief role in the second half.

Verdict: Overall, this film gives you a glimpse of Rabindranath Tagore’s literary genius. For those who know nothing about his literary works, it’s a treat to watch.
