The demon within the protagonist Bilu is a story of you and me; every scene seems to be coming out from a book that is relatable but not read or ignored. That, in brief, is the evolving character of the protagonist Bilu in Bilu Rakkhosh. His inner torment clearly shows. Critically acclaimed in various international film festivals, Bilu Rakkhosh reveals that everyone has a demon within him. Producer: Anirban Maity and Amit Debnath Cast: Joy Sengupta, Koneenica Bandyopadhyay , Pradeep Mukhopadhyay,Papiya Sen, Kanchana Moitra, Moumita Mitra, Debaprasad Haldar. Review: The chains that hold you down in life are often your own creations. Sohini Konineeca Banerjee in Bilu Rakkhosh Bilu has had a very encouraging, middle-class upbringing and open-minded parents who do not raise an eyebrow when he brings girlfriend Sohini Konineeca Banerjee to meet them.
Yet, Bilu is a demon you just cannot hate or be disgusted with. The protagonist of the film is Birsa, whose eyes are the point of view of the film. The presentation, however, definitely compensates and the interest is kept almost from beginning to end. In the beginning of 2017, I launched my own website, Asian Film Vault, which I merged in 2018 with Asian Movie Pulse, creating the most complete website about the Asian movie industry, as it deals with the almost every country from East and South Asia, and definitely all genres. Bilu Rakkhosh Starring , , , Directed by Running Time - 2:10 Genre - Showtimes This movie is not currently playing in theaters. But his academic achievements pushed him into the corporate world that slowly chipped the music away from his life.
Kudos to the actors that bring that emotion on the screen. It is natural for the audience to be weary of larger-than-life heroes with tanned, muscular bodies who can overturn a truck with bare hands or bash up dozens of goons at a single stroke and in its place, accept this normal man with extra-ordinary dreams who cannot cope with failure and walks out of life because of his personal failures. Travelling to festivals — does it help? Independent films are conceived as small films in India. Konineeca proves once again how the Bengali film industry has lost an outstanding actress simply by ignoring her or imagining she does not exist. .
The movie grabbed a lot of attention due to the theme it acquires and makes it more interesting than the story. The fact that we do not see the protagonist works quite well in that fashion, adding to the sense of mystery that dominates the film, while introducing a constant element of surprise each time the spectator realizes that the protagonist is always there, even though not present on screen. Every film has its audience and though Bilu is made for all, it still needs that push from the intellectual audience to help it reach the larger audience. The songs of the movie are good but could have been much better and has been composed by Joy Sarkar. Directed by : Indrasish Acharya Music By ; Joy Sarkar cast : Joy Sengupta , Koneeneca Banerjee.
See such a doleful journey through Bilu's eyes. But when he thinks to leave his job after being frustrated, he finds himself trapped within his own demon. Director Indrashish Acharya keeps explanations about why he had to give up his music away from the narrative, choosing to keep it in suggestion for the audience to infer from. Left alone and dejected, he struggles to make peace with his inner demons. He is a mental patient, whose only friend is a mysterious old man named Kumar John, with both of them staying in an asylum that houses more than 2000 of them, while employing just 40 workers. Koneenica, too, is fantastic as the bickering homemaker, who finally decides to part ways with Bilu because of his uncompromising attitude.
She has authored 24 books mainly on Indian cinema and on gender and has been jury at several film festivals in India and abroad. The ancestral home in North Calcutta leading through a narrow street to the world outside with a platform in front like ancient homes used to be in North Calcutta till tall and arrogant multi-storied buildings began to chew and swallow them up evolves into a distinct character in the film. Furthermore, it seems that something strange has been happening in the place, since patients frequently disappear, in a series of events that involve a mysterious entity that everyone seems to be afraid of, and is called Rakkhosh demon. Silhouette Magazine strives to provide attribution wherever possible. Nonetheless, a certain element of empathy seeps into us when we find him trapped between his vulnerability on one hand and his failure on the other.
Though blessed with the rare gift of musical genius, Bilu is tormented by his inability to do justice to his talent. He has inherited his musical talent from his mother.
