Did I like Goynar Baksho? I'm not really sure. There have been pros and cons, but I guess there were more pros than cons.
Let's get the cons out of the way first.
For starters, the computer graphics were too pedestrian for a movie involving a ghost.
In addition to that, the movie tends to drag. The dialogues (especially the jokes) are a bit redundant, and the entire episode of Bangladesh Muktijuddho at the end seemed redundant, and did not add anything to the movie.
On the other hand, Goynar Baksho does a brilliant capture of the mindset and lives of Bengali widows (and women in general) in the 1940s and 1950s. The characters are well-depicted, vivid, believable, and three-dimensional. Ms Sen probably had made an effort to capture the years
The movie also represents the female-female bonding across generations. It captures female psychology and the ease with which women converse to an extent that it even passed that elusive Bechdel Test!
The cinematography is outstanding - and so is the artwork. The artwork is so convincing that at times you're left open-mouthed.
The individual performances have been quite impressive - even Srabanti Majumdar's - but I guess it was Moushumi Chatterjee who stole the show.
The music forms a second narrative to the movie. Possibly the best example of this is Bidyapati's "janam abadhi haam roop neharala". On the other hand, the innovative rap breathes fresh air into the movie.
All in all a pleasurable - if slow - experience. I wish she could do away with the last half-an-hour.
