Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa film director: Buddhadeb Dasgupta
Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa film score: Two stars
A lot of Buddhadeb Dasgupta’s characters, particularly the principal ones, are on a quest. Typically, they stroll purposefully, different occasions they wander. They’re to be seen in several places, within the metropolis and in rural areas, making their method throughout crowded streets and open landscapes, assembly totally different folks in several time zones: he makes the sort of immersive cinema that requires you to concentrate to small particulars.
Anwar Ka Ajab Kissa, a 2013 movie starring Nawazuddin, one in all Dasgupta’s occasional Hindi outings, has simply begun streaming on Eros Now. It’s a few man looking for himself, a theme the director retains returning to. Because the eponymous Anwar who seems to earn a tenuous dwelling by spying on folks, Nawaz is virtually in each body. However quickly you realise why this movie by no means managed a launch: the intent is intriguing—how a person who goes about uncovering folks’s soiled secrets and techniques will be so unaware about who he’s—however the execution is uneven, and the end result, underwhelming.
Anwar’s detective is the precise reverse of somebody who must mix into the atmosphere in order to not draw consideration to himself. He wears a hat and darkish glasses, and prances out and in of crumbling homes the place clandestine lovers meet, gathering data on the behest of suspicious relations who fetch up on the company he works with. The characters he bumps into are supposed to be picaresque: an outdated girl (Jaffar) who lives in her head, a person who secretly loves one other man, a fairly neighbour who gently stalks him, as Anwar himself passes lonely nights speaking to his canine. Out of the blue, a lady accosts him as he finds himself on a abandoned hillock. A person (Tripathi) whom Anwar appears to know additionally seems out of nowhere: does he exist, or is he a figment of the creativeness?
The movie appears to be like prefer it has been yanked out of oblivion as a result of Nawaz and Tripathi are actually saleable names. There are solely momentary patches through which you recognise Dasgupta’s distinctive signature, this medley of characters, and a mixture of the true and the weird.
