    Goynar Baksho - The box full of fun

    Goynar Baksho rating: 8 out of 10

    By saswato chatterjee(13 Apr 2013)

    Another gem added to Aparna Sen's own Jewellery box of creations with the neat presentation, based on a story, written by Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay. The story revolves around an untimely widow and her treasured possession, the 'Goynar Baxo' which is being passed on to three generations of her family for noble purposes. This wasn't easy for 'Pishima' (Mousumi Chatterjee)as, the box was the center of her world after the death of her husband, when she was only 12. Even after her death, she haunts her next generation, to ensure, it does not fall in the wrong hands and got sold ... » read more

    Not only about jewellery, but also about womanhood

    Goynar Baksho rating: 6 out of 10

    By Aditya Chakrabarty(13 Apr 2013)

    Aparna Sen had bought the rights of ‘Goynar Baksho’ from Sirshendu Mukhopadhyay way back in 1993 as she wanted to make a film on the story, but the idea just remained in the planning stage all these years till Shree Venkatesh Films came in to the picture as a producer and decided to produce the films. The story had attracted her because of it’s magic realism and because of it’s paranormal activities in the story. She has managed to get an ensemble cast to star in her film in the form of Konkona Sen Sharma, Saswata Chatterjee, Mousumi Chatterjee, Srabanti, Paran Banerjee, ... » read more

    A 22-Karat Golden Addn To Cinema’s Jewellery Box

    Goynar Baksho rating: 9 out of 10

    By Jay Kay(14 Apr 2013)

    Make no mistake, this movie is gold, 22-karat, just right for ornaments!
    Expectations were high for 3 reasons: one, the director was Aparna Sen and this was being dubbed as her dream project; two, the original story was penned by none other than Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay; and last but not the least, a stellar cast! The movie has not only lived up to the hype, but even exceeded it. And no, it is neither a feminist relationship drama, nor a children’s film, but rather a comedy, tragedy, romance, drama, history, society, fantasy all rolled into one superbly enjoyable film, ... » read more

    Passing the Bechdel Test

    Goynar Baksho rating: 6 out of 10

    By Abhishek Mukherjee(16 Apr 2013)

    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 ... » read more

    GOYNAR BAKSHO - 4.5 / 10

    Goynar Baksho rating: 5 out of 10

    By sanjeeb banerjee(16 Apr 2013)

    I started watching Mrs. Sen's directorial movies at a very young age and loved those. Still remember when I watched 36 CHOWRINGHEE LANE, for the first time, just loved the concept. Aparna Sen initiated the genre which Anjan Dutta followed many years after. Some years after Aparna made SATI with her best friend Shaba Azmi in the lead character and entered the genre that was once initiated by Goutam Ghosh as well.

    Thereafter, PARAMA, JUGANTO, PARAMITA-R EKDIN, 15 PARK AVENUE, MR & MRS IYER followed one by one. I kept on being simply mesmerized by her concepts, ... » read more

    The box that mattered

    Goynar Baksho rating: 8 out of 10

    By Subhashis Biswas (29 Apr 2013)

    Goynar baksho is one of those moviea which leaves one with happiness at the end of its running time. The story we all know, and we waited for its execution.
    Mousumi chatterjee has given a stellar performance. She is not that much used in our bengali film industry,and directors should line up infront of her residendeafter his.

    We all have fearfor thesuper natural entities, but we never think out of he box. Goynarbaksho is a movieabout traditionalism vs thinking out of he box.
    Male domination was and is still the most common thing in our society. But beneath ... » read more
