A warm embrace, a standing ovation, a thunderous applause, suitably paired with Bravo and Kudos. Atanu Ghosh deserves all these and much more. His directorial debut doesn���t betray the inexperience of a fresher. In fact, his competent telefilm, documentary and short film background translates on the big screen even as Ghosh puts his storywriting, screenplay and directorial skills to test through a resplendent visual poetry.

It���s a film within a film where the protagonist, Angshuman (Indraneil), returns to India from Italy after eight long years to make a film on a painter suffering from dementia. Angshuman���s efforts to rope in Pradyut Mukherjee (Soumitra), who has long since given up the silver screen and a one-time National Award winner Madhura Sen (Indrani), who now ekes out a living by doing jatra, form the core of the film. The emotional trauma of the ageing actor haunted by death and the inflated ego of Madhura meet a crushing climax when through a conversation, the two characters merge into those from Angshuman���s film.

Even as the different layers and shades to the characters��� lives are unfolded, be it Madhura���s estranged past from her obsessed husband and her new-found companionship in Indranil, a gigolo, Indranil���s traumatic past with divorced parents, Pradyut���s fear of staying at his own place in Kolkata while shooting, Indranil���s subtle resilience as a film-maker, the film touches a chord with the mass and the characters��� journey seem like own���s own.

Matched with stellar performances by each and every member of the cast, Ghosh instils confidence among film-makers that one doesn���t always need big names to make a film work. Indraneil certainly is a revelation as is Tota���s execution of a gigolo. Credit must also go to Abir Chatterjee for doing a stupendous job dubbing for Indraneil. Rocket Mondal���s scores only add on to the magic.

So, if you believe in magic onscreen, don���t shy away from spending some time at the theatre watching Angshumaner Chhobi. You won���t regret the decision.

A materpiece art-work,a lyrical poetry at its best & a magical world....even these descriptions will not do justice to express the height of artistry of "Angshumaner Chobi",a magically poetic movie par excellence.The novelty of the subject matter,the acting in its superlative form,the cinematography,the scores,et al have made the movie one of its kind.The critics, only to do justice of their profession,will find points to criticise about,which is only too difficult.This is one movie,which,I am certain,will turn every Critic into an Appreciator.My hats off to the director of Angshumaner Chobi & the whole team of it.
