Abosheshey: When your past comes searching
Story Dated: Wednesday, December 7, 2011 11:2 hrs IST
Director Aditi Roy's debut venture 'Abosheshey,' meaning 'At the end of it all', is about a man who happens to find himself searching for his roots. Firmly fixed on Bengali culture, the film also gives a true glimpse of the evolution of Kolkatta from one generation to another.
The story revolves around a young man, Soumyo, who finds himself searching for ways to make peace with his past. Living in far-away San Francisco, the city of Kolkatta had meant nothing more than the place of his birth to him. It was also the place where his biological mother Suchismita had opted to live her life, away from her husband and son. As the story unfolds, we find Soumyo getting to know more about his mother and Kolkatta, even without her physical presence.
Beautifully filmed, we find the city transforming as something much more than a mere name on the map.
'Abosheshey,' is one among the eleven films that would be screened in the competition section of IFFK.
