A Delight for the Senses
In response to the review by ekeby, I feel there are many in America who would enjoy this series, and maybe use it as a springboard to learn more about Rabindranath Tagore and his works ... provided it is brought to their attention ... maybe a promotional banner on the Netflix home page?
The series is a delight to the senses, with an attention to detail in all aspects of production ... the camera work and the settings, the color and lighting, the props and the costumes. The musical score is an added delight. I enjoy the performances, even though I have to rely upon English subtitles - I genuinely believe what the characters say, and the emotions they display with honesty and a total lack of melodrama.
I am only into Episode 7, but I plan on seeing this series through all the way to the end. Does it faithfully transfer Tagore's writings to the television screen? That I can't say ... but I hope to correct that in the near future with a visit to the bookstores in search of English translations of those writings.
