Tarikh movie review: Churni Ganguly turns an idea into a film
Churni Ganguly's Tarikh nurtures the idea of death, but not as the end of a life but the film sees it through its effect on the others, how others close to the deceased person copes with the loss and moves on. It explores the timeline of social networking site as a documentation of one's life, his dreams, failures, and life. It also tries to find the authenticity of one's virtual life with the comparison of reality.
Churni Ganguly as a director has done a wonderful job by turning a basic idea into a beautiful film. She narrates the story to convey the message. The film revolves around three people Anirban (Saswata Chatterjee), Ira (Raima Sen), and Rudra (Ritwick Chakraborty).
Anirban, a professor, a communist who once had a dream of changing the world, has failed massively. Ira (Raima), his pretty wife whose only priority is her family and closed ones and Rudra, their best friend. Churni narrates their tale gradually discovering their world both real and virtual.
The film has a brilliant cast who carry the film on their shoulder. Saswata, Raima, and Ritwick delivered a tremendous performance. Their natural interaction made the premise credible.
The film will be remembered for its camerawork. It Tarikh becomes a visual treat and the camera keeps capturing every emotion of its characters, the beauty of the city, creating a collage of floating moments
Tarikh may make you face the invincible truth of our lives which we often try to avoid. However, the film is slow-paced and the first half shows little to no happenings. However, it is still worth a watch.
- Leading trio
- Camera work
- Slow paced
Pycker Rating: 3.5
