It's an ambitious outing for a first-time feature and, despite some unadventurous editing and an occasionally too-talky script, young playwright-turned-filmmaker Anand Gandhi should be commended for his commitment to intellectual truth-seeking.
An intellectual, contemplative film, although its occasional tendency to take its abstract ideas on the nature of self-identity and wrap them into neat plot twists can mildly disappoint.
Indie Indian cinema has finally come of age on the international fest scene, and no film better demonstrates this than "Ship of Theseus."
A film that will make you think, maybe even make you angry, but I can almost guarantee that it will at least make you feel, and that's why I go to the movies.
Ship of Theseus asks its audience to ruminate as much as its characters.
Ship of Theseus can be didactic as it nudges audiences toward environmental harmony and economic justice, but it's never preachy or sanctimonious. The credit for that balanced tone goes to its actors, who put real people at the core of these moral tales.
Ship of Theseus undoubtedly marks the arrival of an important talent in Indian cinema.
Gandhi's ruminative subject, catering to art-house cinema lovers, is deeply layered and beautifully intricate. He doesn't compromise artistic depth for commerce, even for a moment, though the story-telling is not without flaws.
It's a film of meditative pauses and life as many of us have felt and lived. It reaches out to the heart as well as the mind. Not the kind of film you see very often.
It is, no doubt, an intellectual exercise, the sort festival films often indulge in. Yet, the narrative is lucid, and the stories are simple and deeply moving.
Ship of Theseus, a striking first feature by Anand Gandhi, a Mumbai-born playwright, tells three parallel stories of organ transplants and the ethical, personal, religious and economic decisions behind each instance.
