KHAAD (2014)

Posted: January 8, 2016 in Bangla 2010-2020, Bengali films, Kaushik Ganguly, Tanusree Chakraborty



Like its title KHAAD/ THE FALL the film I think is quite a fall from the high standards set by the director himself in his earlier films like SHABDO. The film is directed by Kaushik Ganguly from his own story.

A motley group of characters travelling to a hill station find themselves stranded in a station owing to a strike. Thereafter, they head to their destination in a missionary bus which meets with an accident and tumbles down a deep valley. Surprisingly, no one dies. They have to spend the night beneath as trekking would need 4-5 hours in the least and the daylight would last only a couple of hours…

During the night they make a bonfire and start making confession – a doc (Bharat Kaul) is exposed as unscrupulous, another reveal being an informer, an elderly cancer afflicted lady (Lily Chakraborty) reveal that she was a Muslim who adopted a Hindu name after marriage, and question whether her son Kaushik Ganguly is Hindu/Muslim? … one failed to comprehend what the director tried to convey through all this…The others in the cast includes Tanusree Chakraborty, Kamleshwar Mukhopadhyay and others.

Rating: 2.75 out of 5
