Sesh Anka is to the point, urban, slick & very crispy in flavour!
Sesh Anka is urban, to the point, superbly slick and very crispy in nature. Kudos to débutante director Tathagata Banerjee for crafting such an audio-visual masterpiece for the Bengali urban audience. Most of the frames were shot in hand held camera by Cinematographer Supriyo Dutta as the Director wanted to give the film a 'THIRD EYE' effect. An eye which doesn't belong to the audiences or the director or any of the on-screen characters, it's a mysterious third eye. A lot of media critics did not understand this theory as they aren't exposed to the broader horizon of world cinema. Another crucial feature of Sesh Anka is it's super slick editing by eminent Editor Sujay Datta Ray. It's a complete visual treat for 2 hours & 3 minutes. All the actors have enacted their respective roles perfectly, especially the veteran Deepankar De, who played the character of the protagonist Pronoy Dasgupta and Parno Mittra, who is Raina Roychowdhury in the film. The background music by Savvy is OK but the song sang by the living legend Usha Uthup is really a piece of delicacy as it catered to the genre of jazz blues. The art direction by Ananda Adhya is believable & convincing enough. Make up work executed by Ram Rajak is to be praised because of the work he has done on Mir Afsar Ali. I won't be elaborating on this matter as this have to be experienced inside the darkness of the cinema theaters only. The court scenes are pictured realistically and most importantly aesthetically. Congratulations to Tathagata Banerjee for not making those 100% authentic and concentrating on the aesthetic aspects only. One must understand that this is CINEMA and cinema's are works of imaginative and innovative fictions. The story and screenplay is magnetic and Creative Director Sanjib Baneji has made a commendable debut alongside the Director himself. Thanks to Macneill Media and Mr. Pradip Churiwal & Saikat Mitra for providing this creative duo a creative platform to showcase their talents.
