| a good film on a Tagore story..
ELAR CHAR ADHYAY is a romantic cum political tale set in the pre Independence British era. This is based on the Rabindranath Tagore story CHAR ADHYAY and directed by Bappaditya Bandopadhyay. There was an earlier version of CHAR ADHYAY in Hindi in the nineties directed by Kumar Shahani.

For her times, sometime in the 1930s, Ela (Paoli Dam) is a modern woman. Her progressive father (Dipankar Dey) says thus in a dialogue with her "More a woman is obedient, more is her social value" to highlight that independent thinking in woman weren't encouraged in those times. But she comes under the influence of Indranath (Indraneil Sengupta) a young revolutionary. She joins the nationalistic cause after promises to Indranath that she would remain a spinster. However, soon after she falls in love with a fellow revolutionary Atin(Vikram)...

The story touches upon the different strands in patriotic fervour and rebels who come across as weaklings are purged by marrying 'em off. Marriage is a dustbin to rid off such unpromising revolutionary. The film uses lines from Tagore songs intermittently throughout. The camera-work by Rana Dasgupta is exquisite brilliantly capturing the bygone era and the languid pace of storytelling is apt for character development of such a powerful layered tragic story. Tagore's political novels have depicted the silent yet significant contribution by women in freedom struggle(Char Adhyay, Ghare Baire) . These two novels have a romantic story at its core and while unfolding of the narrative the writer weaves in his political beliefs and reservation about aggressive strategies to ward off the Britishers from our land. In novels like Char Adhyay & Ghare Baire, Tagore have raised questions about the deviousness in the ways of many freedom fighters significantly through the characters of Sandip (Ghare Baire) & Botu (Char Adhyay). The supporting cast of Rudranil Ghosh, Barun Chanda, Arunima Ghosh and others perform competently.
