The journey

Back to the roots once more, A peek through the memory door,
Wondering what is the difference, the eye or the ambiance,
Once again, it's time to fly; my wings, and your azure sky.....

Mishawr Rawhoshyo(2013)


Mishawr Rawhoshyo - Srijit Mukherjee's fifth directorial 
venture based on Sunil Gangopadhyay's novel was a treat 
to watch from beginning to end. The attention to detail 
and innovative camera angles right from the start bore 
an indication that something special was in store.
 Srijit twisted and modified the original story to make
 it relevant in the present times, interspersed it 
with enough comic moments to make the movie 
thoroughly entertaining and bound everything 
together in a non linear timeline seamlessly.
 Prosenjit Chatterjee delivered in style as Kakababu,
 the larger than life handicapped yet jovial protagonist
 and all the other actors were brilliant in their respective 
roles. The vast deserts and the inherent mystery of 
Egypt was captured with panache and along with the 
mesmerizing background score, made the big screen 
experience one to treasure. 

All in all, it was really fulfilling seeing our childhood 
hero come to life and save the day in style in a 
scintillating adventure. At the same time it made me a
 little sad thinking that there won't be another 
new kakababu novel in the pages of Pujabarshiki Anandamela....
