PATH (2003)

Posted: November 8, 2015 in Bengali films, Rituparna Sengupta

Biplab amader moto lokedar jonno daay book bhora hahakar aar sunnoto  (Revolution brings untold miseries for the family members of the revolutionary) – The protagonist father’s says in a sequence. This essentially sums up the message being conveyed through this film.

This violent, political film shows the meaningless of revolutionary movements which attracts youths and eventually affects their lives and that of their families. The nexus of street hoodlums, police and the evil politicians has become a nightmare for the common citizen.  This social reality is reflected in this film which is strong on blood and gore. The principal characters are the newcomer hero, the heroine Rituparna Sengupta, Mamata Shankar as a social worker, Victor Bannerjee as a revolutionary turned evil politician, Rajesh Srivastava as a corrupt Police officer, Rajatava Dutta and Ramaprasad Banik also as politicians.
