| The impressionistic human psyche of giving life to utterances.
Bergman still resides, not in heart but also in execution. This film has that colourful palette that draws our senses towards the characters. The director has intellectually kept himself grounded with his commendable attempt in the portrayal of the folklore culture of India. the film has very tasteful musical background that reflects the Indian culture and the mindset of the director being too much attached to his grassroots.
The narrative structure is pretty much linear with the acts segregated. The reflection of his being a film school goer comes out quite well through this short. But there ought to have some flaws that draws our attention, the narrative become quite drab towards the ACT II but it picks up well later on. Might be the director wants the audience to have the taste of the mile like Yasujiro Ozu most often gives us the taste of the environment.
The editing pattern has certain kickers but it manages to suffice the breathing space for the individual visual just completing the structure. the pace could have been much more controlled.
Like the tagline of the film goes 'yunhi ek kahaani thi bas mujhe sunani thi' (A story that he wanted to narrate) gets jinxed when the visuals open up and your mind gets flowing over them seamlessly.
