| A Beautiful Musical Journey Centuries Apart
When I started watching Jaatishwar, it did not strike me. It appeared dull, without any strong story line and probably a disappointment. Things started changing when Rohit (the lovelorn Gujrati guy who by now had left Kolkata to study Portuguese Colonial history in Humbolt Univeristy - my my !!) meets Kushal who recalls himself as Hensman Anthony reborn (and he indeed is)!

Little is known about Anthony Firingi who was born a Portuguese and adopted colonial Bengal as his home. He earned quite a bit of popularity as a poet and singer in the Bengali language during the early 19th Century. I don't know how much historically correct the account of the life of Anthony Firingi shown in the movie is, but the brilliance with which the stories of two different times are intertwined in the story telling is highly commendable. Especially the way the Kobi-r Lodai (Poet Duel) between Anthony and Bhola Moira mixes with a contemporary rock concert is memorable.

Overall the movie takes you through a journey of ages together, a journey of passion, poetry, devotion, music, love, desires and forgiveness. The music by Kabir Suman is probably the biggest strength which presents two different times in perfect harmony and melody. Sir, you simply rock!
