Critic Reviews for Village Rockstars

Village Rockstars is confident and sincere, its story unfolding at a languid but controlled pace.

Jan 31, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

All the kids are natural actors, but Bhanita Das is a standout in every scene. As the work-worn mother, Basanti Das embodies the refreshing lack of sentimentality that gives the film its modern attitude.

Pluckily optimistic and unsentimental to a fault, writer-director Rima Das' second film is a tonic to third world poverty porn.

While Rima Das intended the film to be a tribute to her village, her sensitivity and warmth guarantees that it also captures the innocence of childhood - and the doting bond between mothers and daughters.

Kids pass the time climbing trees or sinking into the marsh, Das's camera capturing them as lively extensions of nature.

Das' warm direction conveys a palpable affection for these people. But the thin plot keeps the audience at a distance.
