Whoever makes an out an out art film these days? Well filmmaker Sanjay Gupta does, with THE GREAT INDIAN BUTTERFLY. The film is being touted as true to the subject, which is the failing relationship of an urban couple.
Dialogues are as real as situation in the film. Whether the past of the husband, worries of the corporate life, diminishing intimacy and passion, the film strikes a cord at the beginning and everyone will have a sense of deja vu at the film. If not themselves, they will have seen similar situations all around.
And, this is the true winner for Sanjay Gupta, who has moved away from his slick flicks and attempted to do something more realistic and give a voice to independent film makers to make cinema as an art form through his White Feather Arthouse Films
Whether it is performances by the lead actors - Aamir Bashir or Sandhya Mridul or the cinematography or even the tiffs between the duo, everything is real and relate-able. And every review in town has raved about Sandhya Mridul's perfectly pitched performance in the film.
The director Sathtak Dasgupta has done a great job of making the film real especially with the subtle dark humor involved in it in showcasing the mirror to urban couples.
And gauging from the rave reviews, THE GREAT INDIAN BUTTERLY is generating, soon enough, we would have every A-list actors in B-town wanting to work with Sarthak Dasgupta for critical acclaim.
Just like their quest for the butterfly, looks like Sathak Dasgupta's journey will be an equally learning experience.
