Dhobi Ghat

I found the underlying emotion of the movie Dhobi Ghat which makes it appeal surreal. I am damn sure that even the director of the movie did not intend to make it be a part of it. But its there and it makes movie therefore subtle. Its ‘guilt’. All four characters are feeling guilty for something or else all the time. Reason may be apparently not so vivid or even valid. But guilt floats in the movie in almost every major scene. And Santaolalla’s music mixes it very seamlessly with other human emotions.

Not to forget, it is indeed very poetic cinematic expression emphasizing on emotions through description and plain movements. So much so that you start empathizing with the characters to the extent to feel yourself being carried away with them in all situations. Still director has achieved to invoke no drama. Real skill.

      १. दिग्दर्शक कोण आहे, त्याचे पूर्वीचे काम काय यावरून बायस ठरवू नकोस.
      २. तीच तर गम्मत आहे. ड्रामा नाहीये. पीच वाढत वाढत जातो आणि शेवटी काहीतरी घडते अशी कथा ही नाहीये. या कथेला शेवटी नाही सुरुवात नाही. तेच तर सांगतो आहे मी. एक स्लाईस आहे त्या पात्रांच्या आयुष्याचा. अधिक वास्तविक. चित्रपट म्हणजे अमुक तमुक असलेच पाहिजे अशी आपली पूर्व-मागणी असेल तर मात्र ती पूर्ण होणार नाही.
