And Lost Soul

Director: Robin Das.

The protagonist of this film is a poet who though revolutionary in spirit, has to compromise with the wrongs in the society. His perturbed soul could not tolerate it much longer however. It possessed his body to govern his actions. Ectoplasm can give a spirit form, but can it make it humane? That was a question that the poet's late wife could never answer. While she had been alive, she was a mere love-interest of her husband! The poet's daughter is quite unlike both her parents. How can she defy this patriarchal society? The story of this film is all about the search of the soul to find the correct rhythm of life. Not a poem, not a folk-lore, not a social drama, what is the true identity of this film ? The individual search finds a universal resonance in the language of this film.
