Edgar's Review of Meghe Dhaka Tara (The Cloud-Capped Star)
"Brother, I want to survive."
Tragic injustice and a harsh reality revolving a noble heart whose physical beauty is merely something symbolic to remind us of her purity. Ritwik Ghatak, a renowned name whose importance easily matches Satyajit Ray, begins his trilogy about the Partition of India in 1947 with overwhelming commitment. Hypocritical figures and visual beauty mixed together sporadically.
