    BISHH for Bengali’s psychic……

    Bishh…Aaaah…Bishh…Uhh…Bishh…Aaoaa…Bishh…Ughh… wondering what does the above the soliloquy means? It’s an audience’s reaction after experiencing the flamboyant Quashik’s (Q) collage of montage. It’s not that Quashik is an emotional jerk. Nor is the case that he is alien with the style of neorealist film maker. But what he lacks (& lacks tremendously) is idea, ability of narrate, create and engrossing screenplay and above all crystal clear concept about the Indian filmy culture. Q also lacks in etiquette. Bishh is a montage of 90mins of gibberish concepts unsuccessfully woven to replicate the structure of a feature film. Now lets evaluate the quotients of culture and perversion. Contemporary global greats like Quentin Tarantio, Pablo Almodavor, Wong Kar Wai & Abbas Krarostami make film about their about their respective phenomena while making it. To cope a foreign culture and imparting forcefully as the culture of another nation or region amounts to falsification and perversion. It’s simple. Indian culture never belonged to nightclubs, drugs, injections, jeans and shortened western outfits. Indian culture gave us films like Bilwamangal (1919), Charulata (1961-62) & Herbert (2006). Thus in essence and heart Bishh is a stolen idea, a mix and match of various borrowed ideas but nothing Bengali at the crux. Q may boast of showcasing modern Kolkata, but alas… he fails miserably. If Q is to be taken seriously then our town is a ramshackle, ruined and dejenerated clan which does not have a solitary glimmer of hope. Such a dark and negative film can’t be prescribed for any blue blooded Bengali. Q treats every audience as a voyeur and tries to cash in with the clauses of sex and darkness.

    Regarding the crew nothing is worth mentioning when the unit doesn’t possess a goal. The film as a product is not only perverted, but it is obnoxiously slow, repetitive and monotonous. Indradip’s music is a hullabaloo of everything but an essence of nothing. Camera work by Sunil is only defiant despair amongst the car cuss. Bishh thus may be qualitatively average but psychologically poisonous for the youth, for Bengal, for every battered up psychology…
