Uma(2018) Bengali Drama Director-Srijit Mukherjee The film is inspired by the story of Evan Lesrage.
Uma,a small NRI girl,is detected with a terminal illness.Her father decided to recreate entire Durga Puja festival of kolkata in march to fulfill her long unfulfilled desire to see durga puja in Kolkata, as doctors said her daughter will not make it to October.
The film announces the comeback of srijit after suffering a phase of his previous critically and commercially unsuccessful films.He has regained his fans after this flick.
The film emotionally drains everyone with a soul.The film plunges deep in to the heart and will make you pray for uma.
Every single performance however small it may appear will appeal to you,the whole ensemble cast has broken all the barriers of perfection. Jishu (playing Uma's father) has enacted his role of a hapless and desperate father with brilliance.Rudranil,neel,srabanti.... their performances are strong and provoking.
The performance that stands out tall are that of Anjan Dutta and Anirban.Not for a moment,you will think anjan dutta is enacting his dialogues from a script,it seems, he has surpassed the bounds of spontaneity to depict his role as the eccentric film director, and anirban, this man is a epitome of talent,what a beautiful performance. The movie will carry u with the performance so much that you will not be able to single out the errors which will be obvious on second viewing. For the sake of excessive melodrama they can be neglected.The songs are the pillars of the film..specially the title song of the film.
The film is made from heart and will not disappoint you.
