recipe for making films like this:
Take something like Luis Bunuel's El Angel Exterminador .
Mix enough milk and water so that it is soothing to the upper petit bourgeoise, in particular.
Make sure the film does not disturb the status quo.
Satyajit Ray's son makes films as reactionary as Satyajit Ray did - and this one is an example.
Reactionary - because it co-opts dissidence and renders it totally impotent. Or strives to. Because people are *not* that gullible.
Oh a majority of the upper middle class will love this film: reminiscent of old sarkari 'ektu bhebe dekhun' programmes on doordarshan.
Seeing this will also be for them - because that kind is blatantly *religiose* [not to be confused with *religious*] - they get to see a movie with pretty faces, and get the 'prayashitto' for ther 'paaps' which they otherwise do in their routine prayer. Basically films like this are a subtitute for, and intended to work exactly like, religiose programmes --- a trivial-sort-of-catharsis - in the worst connotation of the term - for the intended audience/participants resp.
I give it 0.5 out of 5 for technical competence of cast and crew. Otherwise my rating would be 0 out of 5.
