The Bengali short flick ‘Krantodorshi’ released last Friday online worldwide. Celebrated filmmaker Gautam Ghosh, watched the 19minute siesta starring Basabdatta Chatterjee, Paran Bandhopadhyay and Biswajit Chakraborty, and decided to share his review of the short flick.
In his two and a half minute long video review, Ghosh has started by calling the film ‘Simple, Serene and Sensitive’, while also reminding the audience that sudden surprises in the plot here and there make it far from boring. For director Ritu DasDatta, this must be a proud moment, if the opening lines to her film gets such praises. Ghosh further goes on to elaborate how this film, set in austere world of a poet and a publisher stuck in the decaying old lanes of the famous publishing business centre of Kolkata, stirs conversations, hopes and dreams among the thousand young souls in this city, who still fire away their quilts of passion, taking the vibrant practice and culture of poetry, little magazines and self publications forward in today’s time.
